According to Bloomberg data, Elon Musk is the second person to have a net worth of more than $200 billion, after Amazon’s founder, US entrepreneur Jeff Bezos.
Elon Musk, who is also the top manager of rocket company SpaceX and electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla, recently took the seat at this company after buying the social media platform Twitter for $ 44 billion. After Musk bought Twitter, Tesla shares began to fall when he devoted most of his time to this company.
According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Musk’s fortune has dropped to $137 billion. Musk also sold Tesla shares piecemeal throughout the year. He’s sold $23 billion worth of Tesla stock since April, much of which he spent buying Twitter, according to agencies. Musk’s share in Space X stands at $44.8 billion today.
This figure has exceeded the US entrepreneur’s $44 billion share in Tesla. According to Bloomberg, this company still has approximately $27.8 billion in options. Elon Musk became the richest person in the world when his net worth reached $340 billion on November 4, 2021.
He lost that title two weeks ago to Bernard Arnault, CEO of Louis Vuitton’s parent company LVMH, and his family.
