Modo is connecting commerce to the new digital economy. Modo’s platform operates like a shipping container for intermodal payments. Value can be loaded into the container from a variety of systems, delivered across one or more channels, and arrive at a wide variety of destinations. Modo connects different types of value as well, including cards and accounts, and currencies such as digital, loyalty, offers, gifts, and cryptocurrencies. Modo also connects directly to mobile phones, with an innovative Connected Beacon that makes beacons two-way, instead of one-way, interactions.
Mobile payments are dead … long live digital payments
Mobile payments are the solution for a problem that doesn’t exist. Modo’s CEO will describe his voyage of discovery from mobile to digital and demonstrate why connecting containers is the next big wave in payments.

We’re in Vegas this week, catching up with several Finovate and FinDEVr alums. Before the week even started, however, we took a gamble and spent the weekend at the Money20/20 Hackathon.
Many Finovate and FinDEVr alums have powerful APIs to enable the creation of solutions to solve all types of problems. At the hackathon, the crowd of 450 developers, engineers, and entrepreneurs developed a myriad of solutions over the course of 25 hours.
Here are the winners for each company:
- OffBank, which uses Bionym’s Nymi band to authenticate bank customers before initiating a wire transfer
- I Heart Pay, which uses Bionym’s Nymi band, combined with an app, to enable merchants to verify a customer’s identity to charge them for a transaction

Samaritus, which uses barcode scanners inside of recycling bins that read bar codes on recyclable materials to reward people for recycling. The app pays them in bitcoin, while simultaneously collecting data on what and where users recycle.
Bacon, which places a multi-layer authentication platform that layers more security data on top of Feedzai’s algorithm to authenticate customers before a transaction.
In Reach, which uses the QuickBooks Online API to determine the availability of a retailer’s inventory, then enables customers to purchase goods via a native app, and pick up the item in the store.
Enterchange, which uses MasterCard’s API to enable customers to order food and pay at sit-down restaurants.
Swift, a solution for retail stores that uses an RFID sensor to track each product that is placed into shopping carts. The data syncs to the consumer’s PayPal app to enable a quick and mobile checkout experience.
