imogen heap blockchain magazine

We are happy to announce that Tech City News’ latest print magazine issue has launched.

Focusing on the topic of blockchain, issue 10 of our popular tech magazine, features Imogen Heap, award winning artist and technologist, as its cover star. Heap, whose interest in technology stems back to her childhood, is also the focus of a piece detailing how she’s hoping to leverage blockchain technology to decentralise the music industry.

Additional features include an exploration of decentralised ledgers, what they are and how they work; a piece on what a possible Brexit would mean for tech companies in the UK; a look at the rising stars in the blockchain space and an interview with Mariano Belinky, the head of Santander’s innovation fund and an investor in blockchain technology.

Bitcoin: Blockchain’s first app

The magazine also includes an overview of the top 10 tech investments of Q1 2016 and a deep-dive into the top three investments of the quarter, plus various guest contributions from seasoned experts, about the potential and limitations of blockchain technology.

Our ‘And Finally…’ section features a spotlight piece on co-working spaces in London as well as the regular recommendations on what to download, read and watch.

Tech City News‘ editor Emily Spaven and reporter Yessi Bello Perez round off the issue with a head to head and Chris McCullough, co-founder of online employee scheduling software Rotageek and Elevator Pitch Alumni, shares his company’s progress and answers some truly bizarre questions in ’60 Seconds With …’.
