Those who watch the world of Chinese finance closely won't be surprised there's a new richest Chinese person in the world today. CZ is the founder of Binance. Caijing Magazine, based in Hong Kong, has named him the world's richest Chinese person. His net worth is said to be around ninety billion dollars. He easily beats out Zhong Shanshan. Shanshan made his reported sixty-six billion dollar fortune in bottled water. CZ is relatively unknown in his home country. That's in part because Binance has often been at odds with the company's officials. His company is often not seen in searches. He lives in Singapore. Other people on the list include Pony Ma who founded Tencent and an electric car battery maker.
