Amazon Chief Executive Officers, computer scientist & philanthropist, Jeff Bezos is now the richest person in the world for the second time. after amassing nearly $7billion overnight as at Friday morning

According to CNBC & Bloomberg Billionaires Index, the Amazon chief’s wealth shot up to more than $90 billion due to Amazon’s share price surging.

This helped Bezos move past Bill Gates to become the world’s richest man. Gates also added to his fortune with $550 million but his earnings was not enough to stay ahead of Bezos.

This could still change however if Microsoft‘s shares continue to rise and Amazon’s shares drop.

Bezos became the richest person in the world for the first time three months ago as Amazon stock hit an all-time high on July 27, just before Amazon reported its second quarter earnings.
