Ricardo is president of Grupo Elektra, a retailer of home appliances and electronics. The businessman is also the third richest man in Mexico and the 154th richest in the world, with a net worth of around $13 billion.
In 2020, the billionaire claimed that Bitcoin “protects the citizen from government expropriation” and said, already at the time, that he had 10% of his portfolio in Bitcoin.
