Most successful people seem to have gone against the norm of society to become the most influential individuals in the world. For instance, Bill Gates dropped out of school and still went ahead to become not only a billionaire but helped change the world with his genius mind. Serge Belamant is yet another success story with the same plot.
Born in France, Serge Belamant pursued three different courses during his university years, and even with that, he still did not graduate. He has however gone to impact the world positively as he is the genius mind behind the blockchain technology and even holds a patent for it. His invention has positively impacted the world because, besides the life-changing cryptocurrencies, blockchain now boasts a long string of application which makes the world a better place.
