come be a part of the next digital commerce revolution

beckn is thrilled to announce beckn-a-thon: a one-of-its-kind hackathon that will allow you to leverage your creative coding skills to design innovative solutions around mobility, local retail, healthcare, delivery networks or push your imagination & put your ideas into action fuelled by the beckn protocol. the hackathon not only allows you to network with an amazing bunch of developers from across the globe, but also gives you the chance to win an opportunity to work with live beckn projects.

beckn is an open protocol, a way to reimagine digital commerce from the first principles. beckn is an idea, a vision, which cannot be described as a tangible entity. it upholds the concept of democratizing an otherwise closed-up digital commerce system.

as the world’s first commerce protocol, beckn enables businesses to undertake e-commerce with ease and at their own command. beckn allows for open and inclusive commerce sans the big gatekeepers, thereby democratising digital commerce.
