Pavel Durov, known as “Russia’s Zuckerberg,” created Russia’s biggest social network, VKontakte. Whereas Telegram was founded in Russia, it then moved to Germany. Telegram no longer has servers in Russia and the app was even banned in Russia for two years between 2018-2020. Telegram is a non-profit, just like Signal.
Pavel Durov ranks 565 on the Forbes World Billionaires List, with a total net worth of $3.4 billion. Billionaire rankings have changed recently, with Tesla CEO Musk becoming the world’s richest person. Berkshire Hathaway chairman Warren Buffett’s placement in the list fell as Berkshire Hathaway stock tumbled.
