A billionaire owns many projects that have been revolutionary in human history. There is a clear example of SpaceX and its quest to conquer Mars or provide autonomous technology with its Tesla vehicles, and its intention to end Internet problems through Starlink via the satellite Internet that wants to be accessible to everyone. .
It is clear that Elon Musk is behind the great technological developments that have made him one of the richest men in the world. But how did Elon Musk beat Bill Gates in such a short time?
The 49-year-old businessman’s net worth jumped $ 7.2 billion in one day to $ 127.9 billion, buoyed by another increase in Tesla’s stock price. In doing so, Musk added $ 100.3 billion to his net worth this year, the largest number anyone has ever made in the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, a ranking of the 500 richest people in the world. This position is important, because in January he was ranked 35th.
Their advance in the ranking was largely driven by Tesla, whose market value approaches $ 500 billion. Nearly three-quarters of his net worth consists of shares of that company, which is valued at more than four times his stake in Space Exploration Technologies Corp. , Or SpaceX. With this move on Monday, Musk ousted Bill Gates.
