Bezons, 5th of June 2018. Worldline [Euronext: WLN], European leader in the payments and transactional services industry, officially announces its first e-Payments Challenge Hackathon today at Europe's largest Fintech event, Money20/20. This initiative aims at co-innovating with customers and fintechs to concretize the future of payments today: how will we pay in 5 years? With this concept, Worldline wants to collaborate with external fintech companies to develop tomorrow's e-payment solutions in P2P, C2B, B2B, B2C.

How will e-payments be made in five years? To answer this question, Worldline is inviting fintech companies to collaborate, develop, and design new e-payment solutions to unlock the payment possibilities of tomorrow. The aim of this 48-hour hackathon, taking place from September 26th until the 28th, is to develop new applications that will complement Worldline's APIs and allow end-to-end innovation with Worldline's clients.

Participants in the Worldline e-Payments Challenge Hackathon will have the opportunity to co-innovate with the European leader in e-payments and transactional services and to leverage Worldline's assets and expertise. In addition, they will also have the opportunity to present their proof of concept or pilot project to Worldline's customers and to start a long-term partnership with Worldline to scale their own business.

To enable innovation, the assets that Worldline will include in its hackathon 'sandbox' will cover a large array of domains, including Open Banking/XS2A, mobile payments, e-Commerce-/m-Payment, unattended terminals, e-Acquiring, web payments, bots, Blockchain and security/authentication/data protection. They will be complemented by expertise in areas such as Mobile First, connected world, AI, Voice First and disruptive innovation management.
