Bankathon #7 in Prague

“Let the Open Banking World begin!”

24th – 26th September 2019

PSD2 APIs are available. But what now?

Few days before the Bankathon, nearly all European banks are obliged to offer APIs and provide access to their accounts and payments. So how will the banking industry change? What are the opportunities at hand in the European open banking world? Bankathon is coming to the Czech republic to find out the trends after PSD2!

Bankathon is the biggest open bank-independent FinTech Hackathon in Europe and enabling partners, participants and guests to understand what will be driving the industry in the next 3-5 years. Join us in Prague to focus on innovative hacks around Open Banking and PSD2!
