Cashless Society Track :

The Goal : Create a solution (technology / software / hardware / etc) to enable Malaysians to adopt the concept of cashless society at a wider & faster phase. It could be an idea that builds on top of existing solutions / it could be something radical / totally innovative / disruptive to the current cashless ecosystem.

Social Impact Track :
