Massive increase in Londoners moving overseas

New research shows a staggering 64% increase in the amount of Londoners moving overseas, according to leading home moving company AnyVan.com.

The latest statistics show migration demand from the capital since the start of 2018.

The figures highlight the huge increase in movers going overseas, but also has interesting insights into UK based hotspots for those moving out of the capital.

Bedford has seen the biggest demand change in the UK, with an increase of 40%. With average house prices in the area at just over £321,000, the area is a popular hotspot for those escaping the capital to the commuter zone.

Peterborough might be 80 miles from the capital, but with a quick 55 minute direct train connection into Kings Cross, it’s easy to understand why it’s third on the list with an increase of 37% since January.

Coastal locations in the UK are also proving popular, with Norfolk up 35%, Cornwall up 34% and Devon up 33%.

The North is also seeing huge leaps in popularity, with the AnyVan.com research showing that half of the biggest removal hotspots in 2018 are for the Midlands and beyond.

An interview with John Kamara, Director for Global Gaming Africa, on how Africa has embraced Blockchain technology, by Katy Micallef: 

What kind of solutions can blockchain technology offer the continent? Is Africa on the road to becoming a blockchain hub?

Africa is rising and technology is at the forefront of our growth as a continent. We have seen the explosion of the mobile space in the continent and how it has allowed a number of services and solutions to become easier. Blockchain is about to help solve a number of issues we are currently facing in the public and private sector. Pockets of blockchain innovation are fast springing up in innovation hubs across Africa, as the public and private sector alike seek effective new systems of record with trust embedded.

With Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda and South Africa among the countries taking the lead in blockchain experimentation, the financial sector looks set to be the continent’s earliest big adopter. However, development and trials are also underway to apply blockchain technology to virtually every industry sector – from health and social development to retail and agriculture. Governments are exploring ways of using blockchain to aid corruption across multiple verticals and also to push value to service sectors.

One company planning to maximize blockchain’s potential in Africa is Ecobank, a pan-African banking conglomerate with operations in 36 African countries. Ecobank’s Fintech Challenge actively seeks out fintech innovations harnessing Blockchain, artificial intelligence, machine learning and other…
