Blockchain patent holder and inventor of financial card chip technology Serge Belamant is as real as they get in the financial coding industry. He draws his inspiration from the successful behemoths before him, and co-founds a business with his son in the industry which has made him a living. “It’s easy to see far when one stands on the shoulders of giants.” This is his favorite quote because it acknowledges the modern greats, like Steve Jobs, while also acknowledging the potential greatness in all of us at the same time.

The history of Serge Belamant is quite fascinating. He was born a Frenchman in the town of Tulle and was moved to South Africa by his father, whose tiling career saw greater opportunity in the budding South African state. While in South Africa, Serge Belamant created the software necessary to digitize the South African welfare system. From there, his confidence rose to a considerable degree and helped to better realize that anything in the world is possible. From there, he created Net1 UEPS Technologies in 1989 which is responsible for the chip technology in card processing licensed at first to VISA (and later, all other major processors).

His company with his son, Zilch Technologies is very cool because it improves the financial literacy of our youth by highlighting their spending and saving habits in order to improve their choices… and all of this done through a mobile device. Success didn’t always come easy for Serge, though. Self-doubt was a factor in his journey, and admittedly it is for everyone. “I believe that anyone who says they don’t experience at least some self-doubt is lying. We all have moments where we wonder, is what I’m doing actually worthwhile? And even beyond that, if we know it’s worthwhile, we wonder whether it will be successful.” So the next time that you have doubt about your path in life, just know that even the most successful businessmen on the planet like Serge Belamant once had their doubts too: it’s human nature.
