In South Africa, some people would put Serge Belamant in the same league as Steve Jobs or Bill Gates because of the contribution he has made in the technology arena. However, he appears to be an inventor who is in his league. Although he was born in a place called Tulle in France, he grew up in South Africa. His tendency to succeed in his interests started early in life as he was given awards for his participation in sports such as athletics and rugby as well as other championships such as chess. It is, therefore, not surprising that he has succeeded in being part of numerous technological inventions in his lifetime.
Serge Belamant has never hesitated to take a path that was not popular. For instance, when in college, he changed from engineering to computer science when he realized that his interests were in that direction. However, he joined UNISA two years later to study information systems, when he realized that he had to redo courses he had passed, the institution could not allow him to transfer his credits. Nevertheless, his new endeavor was in the technological discipline.
This education background has facilitated his involvement in making various inventions in the finance sector. Serge Belamant is well-known because he is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Net1 Technologies. However, before the creation of this company, some of his first known inventions entailed applications that could do dam-water-level analyses to prevent South Africa from experiencing future droughts. His interest in creating technologies for the financial sector emerged when SASWITCH employed him.
Through his company, Net1 Technologies, Serge Belamant was one of the first people to introduce blockchain technologies to the market by convincing banks to use his UEPS, which was an end application after using FTS. Through this technology, he was also able to present one of the first electronic purses to the market, which is currently associated with cryptocurrencies. Serge Belamant’s leadership in high school as a head prefect also provided a foundation in running his companies such as Zilch Technology Limited. Despite all these great inventions, he states that the most creative thing he has ever done was to create an entity that offered interest-free personal loans.
