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.

Even before the official public release of the cryptocurrency of the messenger, Telegram can increase in price by 200% relative to its value during the initial offer of coins. It is reported by Bloomberg.

As previously reported, Telegram tokens may appear on the Liquid Bitcoin Exchange already on July 10. The distributor is Gram Asia, which calls itself the largest holder of GRAM tokens in Asia. It intends to put up for sale rights to cryptocurrency at $ 4 per unit.

At the same time, one of the investors said to the publication that at the time of purchase the price of 1 Gram was $ 1.33.

It is worth noting, however, that after the announcement of the public sale of Telegram tokens to Liquid, the media reported that this intention had nothing to do with the official plans of Telegram.

Then one of Telegram's investors stated that no one has the right to sell tokens before their official launch in accordance with the signed agreement. Moreover, representatives of the popular messenger noted that they first heard about Gram Asia.

Later, CEO Liquid Mike Kayamora admitted that Telegram has no relation to the placement on Liquid: the deal was concluded exclusively between the exchange and Gram Asia, which allegedly is an incubator for the TON project.

The Block's leading analyst Larry Chermak on several tweets expressed skepticism about the announced Telegram tokenale based on the Liquid stock exchange, saying that he would “think twice before making a decision to invest.”
