US billionaire Elon Musk, founder and owner of “Tesla” electric cars, Bill Gates, founder of the “Microsoft” software empire, ranks second on the list to make $ 127.9 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, according to German Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa according to the agency.
Yesterday (Monday) a 6.5% rise in Tesla’s share price saw Musk’s cash rise $ 7.2 million in one day to $ 127.9 million. Since the start of the year, Musk’s 49-year fortune has added $ 100.3 billion.
It is noteworthy that the Bloomberg Billionaires Index monitors the movement of the world’s richest people on a daily basis, and that each person’s wealth is determined by the market value of their stock and investment portfolio.
At the head of the list is Jeff Bezos, founder and president of the e-commerce company “Amazon,” with a fortune of approximately $ 182 billion.
Bill Gates is currently third on the list, earning $ 127.7 billion. Bill Gates ’wealth would have been greater if a large portion had not been donated to charitable activities.
