Google founders earn $42 billion in 100 days

Impressive growth in the US economy boosted buying pressure on Google shares as its founders saw their wealth valuation surge.



Google founders Larry Page, 48 and Sergey Brin, 47 have earned more money collectively than the total foreign cash reserve holdings of Africa’s biggest economy.

Larry Page, currently worth $104 billion, has earned $21.2 billion in 100 days; while Sergey Brin, with a wealth valuation of $100 billion, earned $20.4 billion in the same period. Collectively, both men have earned $41.6 billion, dwarfing Nigeria’s foreign cash reserve which currently stands at a gross valuation of $35 billion.

The majority of Larry page’s wealth comes from his stake in Alphabet, the parent company of Google. The Standford trained entrepreneur currently holds $12.6 billion in cash.

Sergey Brin’s wealth valuation is also derived from his stake in the world’s most popular search engine and presently, his cash holding is valued at $12.7 billion.

Impressive growth from the world’s most powerful economy boosted buying pressure on Google shares and its founders saw their wealth valuation surge. Global investors are increasingly holding on the tech juggernaut’s shares as amazing economic data from America’s service industries coupled with an advance in the tech sector fueled the hike in Google shares seen in recent months.

Consequently, investors are piling significant amount of funds into Alphabet Inc., the parent company of Google, with reports saying it won its most recent supreme court case against Oracle, a case that has lingered for about 3 years.

Recent price action reveals the stock is presently trading at $2,285.88 nearing its 52-week high of $2,289.04 with a yearly return on investment currently pegged at 89%.

Amid the strong bullish rally at play in the cryptoverse, Ripple’s XRP looks to be leading the way with a push as it almost triples in value following a series of legal victories and social media rumours of relisting at some crypto exchanges like Coinbase.

This surge has pushed the fast-rising crypto into the top 5 cryptos by market value, behind only Bitcoin, Ethereum and Binance Coin.

At the time of writing this report, XRP traded at $1.47 with a daily trading volume of $29.3 billion. XRP is up 147% for the week with a current market value of about $67 billion.

The surge in this crypto asset is coming amid a lawsuit from the SEC which accused XRP’s $1.3 billion initial coin offering of being an “unregistered securities offering.” The allegation led most American crypto multiple exchanges to delist the crypto and XRP lost its place as the 3rd largest crypto by market value.

That being said, crypto traders appear to be backing the crypto asset amid credible reports suggesting that Ripple lawyers have posted two victories in their legal tussle against the powerful American regulator, including gaining access to internal Securities Exchange Commission discussion history regarding crypto assets.
