The end of the year is yet to come, thus it is time sum up how much the wealthiest Americans have earned. Forbes has published a rating of 400 the most well-off people in the USA. Let’s look if there are any crypto-related people.
The list starts with Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s chief, who is the first one to suppress $160 billion mark and the first one to outrun Bill Gates in 24 years. What is worth to mention, Amazon is somehow related to crypto world, not only had it tried to create its own blockchain, but also In March of this year, Amazon became interested in cooperation with Ripple.
Bill Gates took his second place with the states of $97 billion, while the famous investor Warren Buffet came in third. They both criticized Bitcoin many times, calling it “Rat Poison Squared”. If you want to find who else is not a fan of cryptocurrencies, check it here:
One of the biggest surprises of this list is Chris Larsen, the former CEO of Ripple. He took 383th place owning $2.1 billion. He owns around 5.19 billion XRP tokens and a big part of Ripple’s stakes. What’s interesting is that he is the first member of the 400 to make a fortune from cryptocurrency.
