CEO of Zap Solutions
Understanding what you believe is right and relentlessly fighting for it should be admired. Those that care enough to change the world are those that do. I will die on this hill.
Jack Mallers is the CEO of Zap, a bitcoin investment and payments company that transacts over the Lightning Network. The 27-year-old founder of a Bitcoin money-transfer startup Zap Solutions Inc. burst onto the mainstream in June 2021 when El Salvador’s President Nayib Bukele embraced Bitcoin. Mallers, who was reduced to tears while on stage at a Miami conference when the announcement was made via video, had been working behind the scenes with the government to make it happen.
Zap’s app, Strike, is the most popular mobile application in Central America; it allows anyone to send or pay with Bitcoin for free.
While Jack Mallers is known for posting provocative photos on Twitter, he actually is a scion of the world of traditional finance. His grandfather was the youngest chairman of the Chicago Board of Trade. His father sold a discount futures brokerage. Mallers said he would stay in his room for weeks at a time learning about Bitcoin. It helped that his stepmother is also immersed in the crypto world and goes by BitcoinMom on Twitter.
