As reported in the local news, Barcelona Tech City will be building a specialized space for Blockchain technology development. The new working area will be situated a second building which will be near the headquarter Pier01. Barcelona Tech City headquarters were presented back in summer 2016, and will mostly be used by Spanish Blockchain network Alastria.
Currently Pier01 hosts over 1,000 local and international specialists from tech launches and undertaking hubs throughout the country. All of the working teams and staff members are the part of the city’s digital ecosystem which is placed in the reconstructed Palau de Mar.
In the nearest future various buildings of Barcelona Tech City are aimed to be connected by electric vehicles. The Tech City will also keep all the necessary services for the “inhabitants” such as centers for health, gaming, and media. In November 2017, a famous software firm, SAP announced about joining Alastria’s Blockchain consortium. According to the report, the consortium presently has more than 150 member organizations that include several major Spanish banks, leading telecommunications networks as well as many large and IT industry based universities.
The Blockchain tech hubs building has been broadly spreading worldwide as a meaningful recent IT industry trend. The announcement from Spain was one of the recent several important initiatives which all interested in the development of Blockchain technology.
