Jeff Bezos can now buy absolutely all Bitcoin in circulation

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has never been richer, despite his divorce and the global economic downturn in 2020, reports The Hill.

His net worth is now estimated at $ 171,6 billion, meaning that it could theoretically buy all Bitcoin outstanding (18,420,625 BTC).

The market capitalization of the world’s largest cryptocurrency is $ 170.7 billion.

Bezos leaves Gates far behind

One year ago, Bezos’ fortune fell by $ 39 billion after his divorce from his ex-wife, Mackenzie Bezos.

As early as October, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates briefly took back first place after Amazon shares fell seven percent.

There is now a $ 59 billion difference between Bezos and Gates (Gates’ fortune is currently estimated at $ 112 billion).

Amazon reportedly set a new record in mid-April after physical stores had to close.

The protesters teach Bezos a lesson in French history

Not everyone is in a hurry to congratulate the ultra-rich CEO. On June 1, violent protesters placed a guillotine outside Bezos’ home in Washington to draw attention to wealth inequality.

Despite the severe crisis, the cumulative wealth of the 500 richest people on the planet has swelled to $ 5.93 trillion.
