Serge Belamant is well known in the tech world for creating the first incarnation of blockchain technology. While it may have first been used to create smart cards that made transactions faster and much more secure, it is now being used for many different implementations. In fact, many experts believe that it could completely change the financial world once its use becomes more widespread. Currently, the world knows blockchain best because of the popularity of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.
Even during his high school years, Serge Belamant was quite accomplished. He had moved to the Republic of South Africa at the age of 14. In 1972, the native of France competed in the South African Chess School Championship and placed in 6th. This is the same year that he graduated and was named head prefect at North High School For Boys. During his college years, he studied both computer science and information systems. He transferred from Witwatersrand University to the University of South Africa after 3 years. Unfortunately, he did not receive his degree because of issues with how credits were transferred between the schools, but he still was able to obtain the education that has been so important in professional life.
At 22, he began working in the tech field in a position at the civil engineering company Matrix. From here, his career continued to advance as people took notice of his abilities. In 1980 while working on a Cyber Application, he was named as their analyst of the year. In 1982 he was once again given this honor for his work on a national grid system. One of the other accomplishments that Serge Belamant is given credit for is the creation of the VIB network.
Serge Belamant founded the company Net1 Technologies based on one of his earliest achievements, the Funds Transfer System, in October 1989. Unfortunately, due to a smear campaign by competitors that was later found to be completely false, he had to leave the company that he founded in 2017. He moved on with his career and founded Zilch Technology Limited just a short time later. With his name cleared, he has one of the best reputations in the world of IT.
