Guinness World Records says Elon Musk is officially the biggest loser ever.
According to Mashable, Guinness World Records said in a blog post after Forbes assessed that Elon Musk had lost $183 billion.
Earning $320 billion at its peak (November 2021) is a record achievement for Elon Musk alone. But since then, things have taken a turn for the worse for him as the Tesla stock, which he owns a lot – despite having sold regularly over the past year – plummets. At the same time, Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of Twitter only made it worse.
With a current net worth of about $137 billion, Musk has also lost his position as the world’s richest person. This position now belongs to LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) founder Bernard Arnault with an estimated fortune of $190 billion.
Although Guinness can’t accurately assess the amount of damage to Elon Musk’s fortune, the organization thinks it is certainly much larger than the previous record set by Japanese technology investor Masayoshi Son (Japan). Ban) set when there was a loss of 58.6 billion USD in 2000.
Notably, Elon Musk is another tech mogul. According to Forbes, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos lost $85 billion in 2022 and Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg also lost $77 billion. However, these people still have assets in the tens of billions of dollars.
