Terra Money Launches “Think with Terra Ideathon” in partnership with Lumos Labs

Bangalore, September 21, 2020: South Korea-headquartered blockchain payment network Terra, announced their plans to expand their base and build the developer community in India with the “Think with Terra Ideathon.” The Ideathon, launched in partnership with Singapore-based innovation management brand, Lumos Labs,  challenges Indian developers to push the boundaries of the realm of payments in the FinTech industry. With emerging challenges in the payment space such as high, hidden transaction fees,  integration issues, and ease of usability, the Ideathon allows developers to reinvent existing payments infrastructures using blockchain technology.

During the course of the four-month-long ideathon, Terra is looking for ground-breaking concepts for real-world problems in the payments industry, that are both business-centric and consumer-centric. These solutions should solve problems pertaining to the three identified tracks which include  Fintech, e-Commerce, and Logistic tracks, that can be built on Terra during the acceleration phase. The platform also invites out-of-the-box ideas with blockchain applications in industries outside of the identified tracks within the payments industry. The competition calls on developers and innovators in India to conceptualize change in industries that are riddled with large problem statements. The shortlisted startups will receive rewards from a pool of INR 5,00,000, and winning teams will be accelerated with close mentoring from leading industry experts, founders, and the global Terra team itself.
