The latest Bloomberg billionaire ranking shows that Musk is currently worth 127.9 billion U.S. dollars; this year, his net worth has increased by 100.3 billion U.S. dollars, ranking the top 500 billionaires in the entire list. Musk’s ranking in January of this year was the only 35th and now Elon Musk becomes World’s Second Richest Man.

Musk’s worth has risen like a rocket, mainly because Tesla’s stock price has soared; the current market value of Tesla is advancing toward 500 billion US dollars. Bloomberg pointed out that three-quarters of Musk’s net worth comes from his Tesla stock, which is more than four times the value of Musk’s space exploration company SpaceX.

Tesla’s closing stock price rose 6.6% on Monday, closing at a record high of $521.85.

Bloomberg said that Gates, who was squeezed out to become the third richest person, is currently worth 127.7 billion US dollars. Gates is kind and generous and donates a lot of charity. If he doesn’t donate that much money, he is actually richer. Since 2006, the foundation named after him and his wife has donated more than 27 billion US dollars.
