THIS BANKATHON WILL HAVE AN EXCLUSIVE FOCUS ON PSD2 and XS2A

As part of PSD2 the new Access to Account (XS2A) regulation is opening financial accounts. This enables third parties to access and implement data plus functionality of financial sources into their own services.

THE CONSEQUENES WILL BE NEW AND INNOVATIVE 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 sources and ask you one question:

WHAT CAN YOU BUILD ONTOP OF AN EXISTING FINANCIAL ACCOUNT?
