As at the time of posting this, the Amazon owner‘s net worth is estimated at $140 billion, while the WhatsApp owner is worth just shy of $70 billion, Bloomberg Billionaires Index has said.
According to Business Insider, Jeff is one of the rare billionaires who has become wealthier since the novel coronavirus. His wealth has even increased by $25 billion since the start of the year and this makes him the wealthiest man of the world, plopping him ahead of Bill Gates, who is 2nd.
Mark Zuckerberg is 5th on the chart, due to an $8.4 billion decrease in his net worth since the new decade.
The respectable increase in Jeff’s wealth is due to the enormous increase in the market Amazon has undergone amid the coronavirus lockdown. Reports have said that Amazon is coping just fine with the higher number of subscribers.
