$100 million to Musk is like $106 to the average household in the U.S.

There was an article on Giz about Musk’s Neuralink, and how he’d put $100 million of his own money into the project. One quote was, “Only time will tell whether Elon has backed the right horse.” That made me wonder just how big of a bet it actually was for him.

Elon’s net worth was recently calculated at $91.7 billion, following the breathless rise of TSLA stock. The median net worth of the average U.S. household is $97,300.
