Career

He was least interested in studying while in school since he did not comprehend the applicability of the topics, and the only subject he loved was Math. Nikhil began selling used phones when he was 14 years old, but his mother ordered him to stop. He began working in a contact center at the age of 17 at a salary of Rs. 8000. According to other stories, he even forged a birth certificate because the minimum age requirement for employment was 18 years. He used to work from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. at the phone center and as a stock trader in the morning. It was the period when he moved out of his parent’s house.

Soon after, he learned how to trade stocks and began managing his father’s funds. He then persuaded his call center manager to let him manage his money, and in exchange, his boss marked him present with more incentives. In 2004, he left the call center and co-founded the stock trading business Kamath Associates with his brother. By nearly four years, the brothers launched ‘Zerodha,’ a trading platform named after the terms ‘Zero’ and ‘Rodha’ (Rodha is a Sanskrit word for barrier).

During the COVID-19 shutdown, Zerodha grew to become India’s largest trading platform, with its user base increasing by 100% month after month. The USP of Zerodha is that a modest price of Rs. 20 is payable for every intraday trade (regardless of size). According to 2021 statistics, Zerodha processes over 5 million orders (worth more than $1 billion) each day, accounting for over 15% of India’s daily stock activity.

Controversy

On June 13, 2021, he was accused of employing malpractices while competing in Viswanathan Anand’s simultaneous online chess games versus celebrities. Chess.com arranged the event. In the end, Kamath was the only celebrity among the nine to defeat Anand, as the others, including actor Aamir Khan, cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal, and singer Arijit Singh, all lost.

Later, it was discovered that he defeated Anand with the assistance of a computer, and Chess.com suspended his account for “violating the fair play principle.” Kamath later acknowledged utilizing the computer aid and apologized on Twitter.
