This is the second time that Bill Gates got slipped off from the second position, as Bill Gates was the richest man for over 4 years as Jeff Bezos the founder of Amazon became the richest man with the net worth of $181 billion in 2017 and still. At the beginning of 2020 musk was the 35th richest man but after the great success in his SpaceX projects of Falcon 9 and providing the satellites for the US army the stocks have gone straight up which landed him in the second position. As it is known that Musk doesn't take a single penny as salary from his company he takes compensation after hitting every price milestone. Musk has come a far way from The Boring Company to SpaceX and from X.com to PayPal and now with Tesla from 2012 with company price of just $4 Billion to $100 Billion and according to some, it is predicted to become $500 Billion soon.
