Inspired by the need for digital payment in our country and hoping that with this new way of digitizing gift cards and debit cards we can push our country to go more digital.
What it does
Our submission is able to send MasterCards to users and allow them to make digital payments to businesses. Also redeem cards.
How we built it
We built our submission using the flutter mobile framework , firebase , flutter packages, the BlinkSky API and packages from pub.dev.
Challenges we ran into
Our main challenge was deciding on an innovative way to use E-cards in our country. One of our developers computers wasn't working properly with an emulator so that slowed us down a bit. We had trouble integrating the API into flutter due to the response coming different.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
This is our first Hackathon as a group and we are proud we entered and learnt a lot on this journey.
What we learned
We learnt about the BlinkSky API , time management, team work and good code practices. We also improved on our skills of UI design and flutter development.
What's next for BlinkX
If we are permitted to continue using the API we will try and build out our application so we can one day have it go out into the general public for use.
