Rahul Pagidipati is CEO of ZebPay, India’s oldest and most widely-used Bitcoin and crypto asset exchange, and Managing Director of Ayon Capital, where he guides research and investment. Rahul co-founded Freedom Health, the largest private health insurance company in America until acquired by Anthem in 2018. He and his family have invested in multiple “unicorn” healthcare companies in the US and India as well as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other blockchain projects. After acquiring a minority stake in ZebPay in 2017, he took over ownership and relaunched ZebPay in India in January 2020. In March, after India’s Supreme Court overturned a central bank restriction, ZebPay returned to a leading position. Rahul’s long-term vision is to build ZebPay into a social enterprise, like Bitcoin itself, to fight poverty and inequality and bring opportunity and financial inclusion to millions. He has a JD/MBA from the Northwestern School of Law and Kellogg School of Management. He has been investing in blockchain and digital currencies since 2011.
