Open Payments Hackathon

48 hour hackathon to open up payments technology to businesses large and small

Ixaris, in collaboration with the EU and other leading partners, has developed an open payments platform that allows developers and businesses to take advantage of the forthcoming changes heralded by the second iteration of the Payments Services Directive (PSD2).

Right now, many great ideas are held back by the lack of payments technology which is either too costly or too difficult for smaller scale initiatives. Our platform makes this problem a thing of the past, providing the capability for developers to access payments technology in a truly safe and compliant way.

Why you should join?

At this hackathon, we will provide the toolkit, the APIs and framework that will allow developers to create the next generation of commercial payments applications and make them commercially available to businesses online, on mobile or tablet. Join us to be part of the future of open payments.

There’s also an opportunity to win up to £8,000 cash prize. What are you waiting for? Register now to reserve your spot. Bring new ideas, meet new people and make cool, industry changing solutions!
