The head of the companies Tesla and SpaceX Elon Musk returned first place in the ranking of the richest people in the world. This is evidenced by the data of the вЂњBillionaires IndexвЂќ, calculated by Bloomberg.
The entrepreneur's fortune increased to $199.9 billion. This was facilitated by another round of placement of SpaceX securities, which resulted in the company's revenue of about $850 million, and its total value increased to about $74 billion.
In second place is Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who has assets worth $194.2 billion.
Musk was ranked second on February 17. Bezos beat Musk, who held the top position for more than a month. The billionaire occupied the first line of the top from 2017 to January 7, 2021.
