Here's a list of 13 richest Indian tech billionaires

Jeff Bezos rockets to richest person on the planet

The year 2018 rankings is topped by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. The year-to-date change thus far is $30.1 billion, the Bloomberg Billionaires Index indicates.

With Amazon's share price up almost 60 percent during the past year, the personal wealth of the company's 54-year-old founder has doubled to more than $110 billion, while the position of Microsoft founder Bill Gates slipped to second place with a net worth of about $90 billion, according to Forbes magazine's annual billionaires list published last Tuesday.

So, the magazine estimated the fortune of Bezos 112 billion dollars, he became the first man, whose wealth exceeded $ 100 billion.

Because of the increase in the Amazon stock price, Bezos' net worth is now growing at the rate of $10 billion per month, or $231,000 per minute, CNN reported on Friday. It does not necessarily mean Bezos could easily convert his investment into cash.

Bill Gates is on the 2 place (%90 billion).
