CEO of Tesla Motors and business tycoon Elon Musk certainly needs no introduction. A few months ago, NASA awarded Elon Musk’s SpaceX a lucrative contract to get astronauts to the moon by 2024. As reported earlier, Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin had a problem with this.
Earlier this month, Tesla had to pay $137 million to one of its employees over alleged racism. While that is certainly an exorbitant amount of money to many, it seems that is nothing more than change for Elon Musk from the looks of it.
As reported earlier, Elon Mask is set to become the world’s first trillionaire. It seems he is already making good progress in that regard judging by his insane growth recently.
According to Forbes, Tesla’s stock rose significantly on Monday after Hertz announced plans to buy 100,000 electric vehicles (mainly Model 3 sedans) for its rental car fleet.
Due to this, Elon Musk’s net worth bumped up from $219.6 billion to a staggering $255.2 billion. He makes $25.6 billion a day at this point. It was also estimated that Elon Musk is the richest he has ever been. On top of that, Elon Musk is likely the richest man to have ever lived on planet Earth.
Elon Musk far surpassed his rival Jeff Bezos back in September and hasn’t looked back ever since. Bezos’ fortune was down $1 billion on Monday as Amazon’s stock faltered ahead of its third-quarter earnings report. Bezos is worth $193 billion right now. It remains to be seen if Elon Musk truly will become a trillionaire somewhere down the line or not.
