Far ahead of Jeff Bezos on the super-rich rankings, Elon Musk has just had a “very harsh” spin without saying a word

Tram Ho

On October 11, Jeff Bezos had a message on Twitter. Musk then responded with an emoji. It was a silver medal, which was originally reserved for the second place finisher.

The incident immediately attracted the attention of the online community as Elon Musk’s fortune skyrocketed after SpaceX, the first private aerospace company to send people into space, was valued at more than 100 billion USD. Along with that, Musk also went down in history when he led two companies worth more than 100 billion USD at the same time.

With the latest “achievement”, Elon Musk’s net worth is $222 billion, far exceeding the Amazon.com founder’s $190.8 billion. Currently, Elon Musk is the richest person in the world, a position where they have repeatedly competed after a long time dominated by Bezos.

However, this position also sparked controversy around “fans” of Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos. At the moment, both of these billionaires are participating in the race to revolutionize the space industry, but Elon Musk is far ahead of his opponent, who has only made a flight lasting a few minutes to an altitude of about 3 km. 100km while Elon Musk continuously made flights to the International Space Station (ISS), both carrying goods and carrying people.

Meanwhile, Bezos’ Blue Origin is suing the US government’s contract with SpaceX to send Americans back to the moon again. Musk also once took to Twitter to call the Amazon founder a copycat with the space projects that the e-commerce giant is pursuing. An Amazon subsidiary sued Elon Musk for not complying with the law.

At the age of 50, success is constantly looking to Elon Musk. Most recently, the fact that SpaceX is valued at over $ 100 billion has helped Elon Musk’s fortune increase by $ 9 billion. Currently, SpaceX is also valued at four times more than Jeff Bezos’ aerospace company Blue Origin.

This is not the first time Elon Musk has kicked Bezos. At the end of September, when he again passed Bezos, Elon Musk wrote: ” I am sending a giant statue with the number ‘2’ to Jeffrey B., with a silver medal “. Musk also said at least twice that Bezos was a copycat. The first was when Amazon announced plans to launch a satellite for global Internet coverage to compete with SpaceX. The second time was when Amazon bought the self-driving car company Zoox, a competitor of Tesla.

Meanwhile, over the past 1 year, Elon Musk’s fortune has also increased by leaps and bounds. At the beginning of 2020, Elon Musk only had about $ 25 billion in assets but quickly increased to the current $ 220 billion figure. Most of the wealth of this famously extravagant billionaire comes from the electric car company Tesla. Over the past 1 year, Tesla has increased prices many times.

Not only SpaceX and Tesla, Elon Musk has many other successful projects, both past and present. At the beginning of his startup, Elon Musk and his younger brother, Kimbal, co-founded Zip2, a web software company, and was bought by Compaq for $340 million in 1999. Later, Elon Musk founded X. .com, an online bank. Merged with Confinity in 2000, the company launched PayPal before being acquired by eBay for $1.5 billion in October 2002. In addition, Musk is the founder of The Boring Company; co-founder of Neuralink; co-founder and original co-chair of OpenAI.
