Chris Larsen holds a 5.19 billion XRP and the recent 17% stake in Ripple put Larsen ahead of Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
Right now Chris Larsen has control over 15.6 billion XRP. With this, Larsen’s net worth is around $54.2 billion which puts him ahead of Google Co-Founders. Earlier when the value of XRP reached $3.84, which makes the net worth of $59.9 billion made him reach just below Mark Zuckerberg who stands on the fourth place on Forbes World’s Richest list.
