  Billionaire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A billionaire is a person who has a net worth at least one billion units of currency, such as United States Dollars (USD), Pounds or Euros.
Though a "billion" used to be a million million in much of the Commonwealth of Nations, the American version (one thousand million) is commonplace now; so in Britain a billionaire is someone with a net worth of at least 1,000,000,000 British Pounds.
The first Forbes ranking of billionaires in 1986 found 140 billionaires around the world.
