A staggering $230 billion dollars in value makes Elon Musk’s net worth greater than the combined value of Warren Buffet and Bill Gates.
According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Musk has reached a net worth of $236 billion USD, placing him in the top spot as the world’s richest man. Gates is in fourth place with $130 billion USD, and Buffett is 10th with $103 billion USD.
In addition to being the world’s richest person at one point, Gates and Buffet have significantly reduced their wealth thanks to philanthropic donations.
The SpaceX and Tesla CEO & tech mogul has added more than $60 billion USD to his net worth this year alone, thanks in part to the surge in Tesla’s stock price as well as a recent share sale of SpaceX, now valued at $100 billion USD.
As Musk’s net worth reached $185 billion USD back in January, he passed Amazon’s Jeff Bezos as the world’s richest person; meanwhile, Bezos turned into the second richest person after falling from the top for the first time since 2017.
