Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, has become the world’s richest person, who surpassed the net worth of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

The BBC reported:

“Elon Musk has become the world’s richest person, as his net worth crossed $185bn (£136bn).”

It has been reported that the futuristic businessman gained staggering wealth last year. 

CNBC noted:

“Musk started 2020 worth about $27 billion, and was barely in the top 50 richest people.”

It added:

“Tesla’s rocketing share price — which has increased more than ninefold over the past year — along with his generous pay package have added more than $150 billion to his net worth.” 

Likewise, after the COVID-19 crash in March, Tesla found its stock priced near $70, based on TradingView.com data. By 2021, TSLA stock shares found their way up past $800 apiece, which also takes into account an Aug. 2020 share split.

Also, he said:

“Bitcoin is almost as bs as fiat money.”

As per the sources, Musk owns just 0.25 Bitcoin (BTC), as of his most recently publicized comment on his holdings, noted in May 2020. He has also commented on Dogecoin (DOGE) at various points in the past, in a likely comedic fashion.
