BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN — Grab a friend or three and join BruPay’s upcoming outdoor scavenger hunt that promises to test your skills and bring fun to your Sunday.

Dubbed the QR Race, the second edition of BruPay’s scavenger hunt set to take place on August 18, will take participants on an exploration around Brunei-Muara to compete for a grand cash prize of $1,000.

“The aim of the QR Race is to familiarise our users and participants with our merchants,” BruPay Marketing Exectutive Jason Rumpun said.

He noted that since the launch of the e-wallet app in November 2018, they now have over 3,500 users and more than 30 participating merchants. “We are hoping to reach 100 merchants and 5,000 users by the end of the year… Currently, most of our merchants are up and coming businesses which resonates with the younger crowd.”

According to Jason, most of their users are below 40 years old and this is because this demographic understands how fintech works and are comfortable with the security it provides.


Last year’s scavenger race allowed participants to learn about BruPay’s e-wallet features, such as the concept of QR scanning. Unlike last year, where participants competed as groups of individuals, which limited the number of participants to 30, enthusiastic hunters can now participate in teams with their friends and family.

This year, the hunt is back with new challenges and attractive prizes.

First place winner will take home a cash prize of $1,000. Meanwhile second and third place winners will receive $500 and $250 respectively. However, there are prizes up for grabs which can be unlocked by solving QR-code related bonus questions.

Participants are expected to familiarise themselves with BruPay’s merchants as the hunt will be focused on the merchants’ locations.

Each participating team can have a maximum of four members. To register, you will need to collect a registration form from the BruPay office and come up with a team name and elect a team captain. Closing date is on August 6 — be quick as the event is limited to just 50 teams.
