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.

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.
