Elon Musk can add a new title to his resume: Guinness World Record Holder.
Tesla’s “techno king” set a record for the worst year in 2022, thanks to his fortune dropping by as much as $182 billion, the organization said Friday in a release citing data from Forbes. Announced.
Guinness says, “The exact number is [of Musk’s loss] It’s almost impossible to confirm,” some media estimates he lost more than $200 billion, and the Twitter owner broke the previous record: 2000 by Japanese investor Masayoshi Son. $58.6 billion loss.
Musk’s fortunes shrunk largely as Tesla shares plummeted, losing about 65% of its value in the company’s worst year ever.
This loss was enough to remove him from his status as the richest person in the world. Today, luxury goods mogul Bernard Arnault holds that title.
Of course, Musk won’t be the only billionaire hit hard in 2022. In total, the US billionaire lost $660 billion last year, CNBC Make It previously reported.
