At the time of writing, the cryptocurrency has a market capitalization of $ 947 billion, according to CoinMarketCap , which exceeds the current $ 939 billion of Mark Zuckerberg’s company , according to Yahoo! finance .
Shares in the tech company fell 5% on Monday as the company was hit by a massive outage in Facebook , Instagram and WhatsApp apps. This is in addition to the 15% drop that occurred in mid-September.
On the other hand, Zuckerberg’s wealth fell by $ 6.6 billion, causing him to fall to sixth on Bloomberg’s list of billionaires within hours.
