With more than $12,000 in prizes, this two-day hackathon will bring together developers, designers and entrepreneurs from all over Dubai to craft solutions for the future of digital payments.
The Digital Payments Hackathon which is organized by Angelhack will be held on Friday and Saturday November 25-26, with the demo day falling on Tuesday November 29 at Visa Innovation Center in Dubai (only open for hackathon winners announced on Saturday).
The hackathon is divided into two challenges:
The Visa Digital Payments Challenge:
Your goal is to determine where digital payment solutions will have the most impact on the future of Dubai. Do you envision a full-system, payment analytics platform for a district employer? A loyalty program for a displaced laborer? Perhaps an authentication platform to prevent payment fraud for a city-wide organization? The solution will be up to you.All you need to do is leverage at least one Visa Payment Method API to create a digital payment application.
The Mobile Connect API Challenge:
The Mobile Connect API provides a simple, secure and safe authentication solution. Use this API in your project and you could win a trip to Mobile World Congress and a chance to demo at Visa’s Innovation Center on Tuesday, November 29th.Ideas to think about:
digital payments, mobile, security, and smart city.
