Marqeta Joins the Visa Team
We’re very excited to partner with Marqeta during the hackathon to help developers bring their innovations to life.
“Developers can build faster using Marqeta’s APIs. Our open APIs have revolutionized the payments issuance process for leading innovators, providing them with the first modern card issuing and core processing platform, powering prepaid, debit and credit cards. We’ll be available throughout the hackathon to guide developers on the best path through our APIs. Best of all, developers will be able to simulate live transactions with real money through a digital wallet.” – Marqeta Team
