Elon Musk & Bill Gates tied as second richest men in the world

The Tesla Boss’s wealth grew more than $100 Billion this year alone

Bloomberg says Elon Musk ‘s wealth grew by more than $100 Billion in 2020 which is more than anyone on the Bloomberg Richest list.

The Tesla owner’s wealth grew on Monday as shares of his automaker hit a record high which boosted his net worth to a staggering $127.9 Billion according to the Bloomberg Billion Index which tracks the world’s 500 richest.

On early Monday, the sudden gain on Tesla stock — which appeared to surprise him by the way — briefly put Elon Musk above Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft and long time World’s second richest estimated to be at $127.7 Billion.

This year has been pretty good for Elon Musk with Tesla stock shooting up to almost 524%. However, despite this huge gain to the entrepreneur, Bill Gates would be an even bigger billionaire if it was not for his Philanthropy work.

Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos is the current richest man with an estimated net worth of around $182 Billion.
