We believe that developers who use MasterCard APIs should be treated differently than the rest. That is why we are pleased to offer a Priceless prize to the team who use MasterCard APIs during the Appsworld Hackfest on November 12th and 13th, 2014 and win the MasterCard Challenge.

The Challenge

Design the best consumer experience (using wearables, locations, context, motion) with MasterPass and/or Simplify Commerce in any shopping context (POS, Kiosks, vending machines, parking lots, cars, toll booths in short, the IoT).

The project that will win the MasterCard challenge is the one that offers a unique, enjoyable and simple user experience, is scalable across platforms (mobile, desktop, IoT, etc.) and uses a variety of data inputs to provide an intelligent solution for the consumer.
