The amazon CEO and worlds richest person, Jeff Bezos has reached a new milestone of $200 Billion.
Earlier today, Amazon stock went up by 2%, earning Bezos $4.9 billion, which is all he had left to reach the new milestone.
His net-worth is now a total of $204.6 billion. Thats over $90 billion more then the second richest person, Bill Gates, who’s currently at $116.1 billion.
The 56 year old would be even richer if he hadn’t divorced earlier this year. After the split with his ex-wife MacKenzie Scott, he agreed to give her 25% of his Amazon stake, which is now worth $63 billion. This also makes his ex-wife the richest woman in the world.
Despite $200 billion looking like a large number, it looks like Jeff is just getting started and will soon reach new milestones as he is estimated to earn about $321 million per day!
