Everyone agrees with the fact that Blockchain technology is the next big thing in the world of technology. Currently, a vast number of bank transactions and other financial transactions taking place online are based on this technology. Most people probably heard about the technology because of cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and the others, but the reality is that the technology has been there since the ‘80s. Serge Belamant is one of the few people who was involved in the creation of the technology behind Blockchain. He has been in court seeking to get legal rights over the intellectual property that he created.
Serge Belamant was born in France; he spent part of his childhood in France before his family moved to South Africa. He studied at the University of Witwatersrand before he moved to the UK. He was one of the founders of Net1, one of the most successful technology companies in the creation of products based on Blockchain technology. Serge Belamant is a man who has been through a lot. He started Net1 as a one-person show, but when the company expanded, he had to bring other people on board. Not everyone is pleased with the fact that after working 27 years for a company that was both his dream and passion, he has had to let it go.
When asked how he feels about the fact that he has parted ways with the rest of the group, Serge states that he has learned that in life, not everything will have to go according to plan. He said that when he was the boss, people treated him with that respect, but now that he has left, it has become a little different. He, however, states that most of the times, it is the people who work the hardest to bring technology to the world that does not get the recognition they deserve for it.
Serge Belamant believes that the future is Blockchain technology. He adds that even though at present, it may not seem like there will be much of a future for him in the company, he will leave his mark in the world.
