One should never think that an e-commerce company or any tech giant is at loss when they offer a major discount deal. Thanks to the Black Friday deals this year, the shares of Amazon has climbed up and Jeff Bezos net worth has risen to $100.3 as per the Bloomberg evaluations.
2017 is a good year for Mr Bezos and do you wanna know why? Because he has earned a total of $32.6 Billion dollars in this year so far. One should be wondering what he’s gonna do with all this money.
Though he hasn’t publicly shared his plans about how he wants to use the money, it is very evident from some of his tweets this year that he is interested in the philanthropic activities. And in one of the tweets, he had openly asked for ideas.
This is not the first time that somebody is crossing this milestone. Earlier in 1999, the co-founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates had achieved the 12-figure benchmark. Since then, the world has witnessed several philanthropical works from them as well, thanks to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for that.
While Gates and Bezos share the top two positions of the richest men in the world, Mr Buffet’s assets has secured him a third spot.
Amazon owes this success to the launch of some of its products that are powered by Alexa this year. The good results from the Amazon Web Services has also helped the company to achieve this feat.
