According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Elon Musk is the second richest man in the world with a net worth of $ 128 billion.
Earlier, Microsoft owner Bill Gates was in second place, followed by Amazon owner Jeff Bezos in the first place.
The highlight is that by January of this year, Elon Musk was ranked 35th on the list, and he was able to reach the top of the ladder even before the end of this year.
The main reason for this is the sharp rise in Tesla’s share price, with Tesla’s total value now exceeding the US $ 500 billion, up from $ 100 billion at the beginning of the year.
Tesla currently has more value than any other car company in the world, and it is estimated that they will be able to produce about 500,000 Tesla cars within this year.
Bill Gates was the world’s first billionaire for many years until 2017 when 2017 Amazon owner Jeff Bezos overtook him.
The Bloomberg website points out that Bill Gates would still be the world’s first billionaire if he had not set up the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a charity since 2006, and made donations through it.
