About this event
Three years ago, Money20/20 launched what is now regarded as the best FinTech Hackathon in the world. Taking place in a massive ballroom in the beautiful Venetian resort right on the famous Vegas Strip, the now legendary Money20/20 Hackathon attracts developers, designers and entrepreneurs from all over the world, all hoping to strike it big, hackathon-style.
This year, some of the worlds most noted and recognizable FinTech companies will present innovative and fun challenges that will stimulate your Hacking skills and inspire you to new levels of creativity. View or download last year’s challenges here.
This isn’t your typical hackathon. Say goodbye to wooden folding chairs and junk food, and hello to more than 500 fellow hackers competing across new challenges and for $125,000 in cash prizes. Oh, and each sponsor has their own additional prizes. You’ll want to get your ticket quick, because this one sells out FAST.
Remember: You MUST have a computer or device that works on 5ghz wifi. If you do NOT, you should purchase a wifi converter for your device before the event. This is covered in your travel stipend.
We will not have any wifi other than 5ghz at the event. We'll announce our Sponsors Closer to the Event!

What is the Fresh Code Rule?
All code developed as part of the Money20/20 Hackathon must be FRESH–that’s how we keep these things fair. Before the start of the Money20/20 Hackathon, developers can create wireframes, designs and user flows. They can also come with hardware. But to keep things fair, all code must be written onsite at the Money20/20 Hackathon. Other than that, almost anything goes and you can use any coding languages or open-source libraries you’d like.
Who Owns the IP?
Participants will own the rights to their work. Sponsoring companies may have their own terms and conditions for proprietary technology or content.
Is there a Participation Agreement?
Yes, developers, designers and entrepreneurs are required to sign this agreement upon arrival at the Money20/20 Hackathon.
How Many People can Be on a Team?
No more than 5 people may be on any one team.
