Most of the people who have known him since childhood, says he’s a tech prodigy. He built his first remote-controlled toy helicopter using trash that was lying in his father’s garage at the age of 5. And, now he’s a CEO of the world’s biggest technology company: Kachang – building supercomputers for countries. A lot of people from his neighbourhood still remember Zinto as a shy, calm child. Recalls one of his neighbours ‘He never use to talk much, but his eyes were like a sea, the depth, the mystery. While Zinto’s school teacher says ‘He was an average student, but during Mathematics and Science class he would get completely absorbed’. One of Zinto’s uncles attribute his success to his parents, he adds, ‘they raised him well, they raised him right’. Zinto’s college friend Matt ‘I use to like him a lot during our college days, he was the cutest boy in the group, I made an advance but he never reciprocated’.
Today, Zinto owns NASDOW listed Kachang which has a market cap over US$1 trillion. The first company in the world to reach this milestone. Also, popularly known as ‘planet’s biggest company, and biggest hope’. Being a majority shareholder Zinto is world’s richest person, but he is never seen wearing an expensive suit or giving an interview. Zinto says in a rare public appearance ‘money is secondary, the impact comes first! I work for the advancement of humanity, the entire earth is my home, and I don’t need more’. For years, news and media companies have been writing about Zinto and his company Kachang. Some refer him as ‘Quantum Computing and Humanity’s Ray of Light’ while other popular daily newspaper calls him ‘A man above and beyond profit’. Zinto in school and college books is credited for perfecting the use of Quantum Superposition – adding quantum states and Quantum Entanglement – joining particles. He was 23 when his company built its first and world’s most powerful supercomputer with more than 40000 processors capable of doing 250 quadrillion computations per second. On a social service trip to Malawi he donated that supercomputer to their Government, which will be used for detecting new water sources, wildlife conversation and managing their power grids.
Many secret service agencies, governments and corporate lobbies are after Zinto and Kachang. There have been hacking attempts to intrude into Kachang’s firewall, a few countries have restricted use of Kachang’s servers and competitors are paying news and media companies to make malicious and scandalous allegations against them. But, there has been only one trend for Kachang, its shareholders and its customers – upward. They are the pioneers in offering free basic computing power and therefore eating into hundreds of leading electronic gadgets manufacturers’ business. Kachang’s PnQ (plug-n-Quantum) is a plug-and-play device that doesn’t need a storage, hardware or internet plan, all you need is a display. But, before its launch they invested more than US$200 billion for making floating servers (balloons with hardware) in the sky. It was Europe’s fastest selling gadget and has become Asia’s most popular carry-with-you-all-the-time device. Zinto counts government of countries like Germany, Norway, Switzerland and Denmark as its marquee customers.
What’s next!? When asked at the annual IT industry’s largest expo – CyberoCon 2060 he grinned and said ‘Space’. Even during their Investor Meet, Zito personally briefed a consortium of investors about Space Tourism. He feels that there have been efforts to send people to the Moon and Mars, but not many have explored this opportunity in a holistic, economically viable way. During the conference, he says to a reporter ‘I want you to see Saturn’s iron-nickel core and I want to see Uranus’. Yes, that was the buzzword of the year 2059, people have physically and virtually explored all humanely possible tourist attractions in the world. But, our galaxy still remains a mystery to them. What lies there? How do I get there? How much time will it take me to reach there? Well, a lot of questions and only one answer – Zito and Kachang. After free computing power for all and commercializing quantum computing, space tourism is on his radar. With all the scientific and technological advancement it’s no longer a distant dream for him, his company and the people.
