For the second time in 2021, the Tesla chief has dominated the billionaire index.
Amazon.com Inc CEO Jeff Bezos had overtook Musk earlier this week with $194.2 billion to become the richest man.
Last week, Tesla had announced that it has invested $1.5 billion in the Bitcoin cryptocurrency. The announcement led to a surge in the price of one Bitcoin, which has even surpassed $50,000 per coin.
Tesla said it will also “begin accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment for our products in the near future”.
After vouching for Bitcoin, Musk also said that if major Dogecoin cryptocurrency holders sell their coins, he will give them his full support.
