Musk’s wealth growth kicked in at $ 36.2 billion in 24 hours, Bloomberg writes. This is roughly HUF 11,275,056,000,000, which is not even easy to read. With that amount, Musk broke the $ 32 billion daily wealth growth record of Chinese businessman Zhong Shanshan, which he achieved in 2020 when his mineral water distributor business entered the stock market. Musk currently has $ 288.6 billion in assets, sweeping behind the market value of companies like Toyota, Exxon Mobil or Nike.
