It is no longer rumour that the co-founder of Microsoft Corporation, Bill Gates is now officially the world richest person after a 2% drop on Amazon stock exchange elevating Gates to the top of Bloomberg’s billionaire charts


Gates overtook Inc.’s boss, Jeff Bezos as the world’s richest person on Friday, reclaiming the top ranking for the first time in more than two years.

According to Bloomberg “Gates may have been helped in part by the Pentagon’s surprise decision announced Oct. 25 to award a $10 billion cloud-computing contract to Microsoft over Amazon”. After the tragic incident, the Microsoft co-founder, Gates’s fortune have since claimed a milestone of $110 billion with Amazon stocks falling by 2% and the former world richest person in place of Jeff net worth at $108.7 billion.

Actually, this incident wouldn’t have happened perhaps if Jeff Bezos hasn’t been divorced. The divorce which claimed a quarter of their Amazon holdings in July could be the cause of Jeff’s net worth to drop toping the woman’s net worth to about $35 billion as of last week Friday, Bloomberg reports.
