With Amazon stocks rising in recent months, the gap between Bezos’s fortune and that of Bill Gates, the world’s second-richest person, has grown to $ 83.8 billion today.

It is reported that Jeff Bezos sold some of his shares earlier this year. In February, the Amazon founder sold $ 1.7 billion of the company’s shares. In early August, it sold another $ 3.1 billion in shares. Disclosures submitted to the Securities Commission on Tuesday also revealed that Bezos gave 2,941 shares of Amazon on August 14 – worth $ 9.3 million – to an undisclosed nonprofit.
