Visa Developer Community

Challenge: Build the Smart City of Tomorrow at Money 20/20 Hackathon

Community Manager


It’s that time of the year again, the Visa Developer team is heading to Las Vegas to support developers competing in the Money 20/20 Hackathon, the biggest US Fintech hackathon of the year, October 21-22.


This year we want developers to build digital payment solutions for the totally connected, smart city of tomorrow. We challenge developers who choose to build with Visa APIs to re-imagine the cardholder experience in this smart city, that is totally cashless. How will the customer experience in payments evolve in this setting?


Think retail point of sale, ID verification, loyalty and rewards. Developers will mash-up our APIs along with third party APIs to build a solution that could help issuers and/or merchants provide a seamless payment experience.






Cool right? Check-out the details on that challenge here and the Visa Challenge prize (includes the iPhone X and Xbox One X!)




Can’t make it to the hackathon? Don’t worry, we’re putting together a back-to-back Webinar event for you to learn more about building the Smart City of tomorrow without having to purchase travel to Vegas.
