Bankathon is back!
We are thrilled to inform you that the registration for our third Bankathon on 9 - 11th October is now open! After two successful events in 2015 in Frankfurt we are very happy to host the third edition in our hometown Hamburg. As part of the FinTech Week Hamburg we will be the first to kick start an intense FinTech week. We were able to attract many great sponsors to support us and everyone is excited to see what the participants will develop this time.
This Bankathon will have a strong focus on 'Payment Service Directive 2' (PSD2) & 'Access to Account' (XS2A)! What does that mean? As part of PSD2 the new EU regulation XS2A is opening financial accounts. This enables third parties to access and implement data plus functionality of financial accounts into their own services.
At our third Bankathon we want to find out what the impact of PSD2 and XS2A will be on the financial service industry. We provide you with access to financial accounts and ask you one question:
What can you build on top of an existing financial account?
