There has been a lot of debate about the existence of “too many FinTechs” on social media recently. Some argue that most FinTechs provide the same solution, while others argue that the current products in the ecosystem have only scratched the surface of solving the problems that exist in Africa. We at SeerBit believe that there aren’t too many FinTechs as there are still so many things and so many people to build for. 

In this hackathon, we invite software developers to use SeerBit’s API and SDKs to build a compelling solution that will be impactful in the African economy.
