On July 15, a PayPal mistake made the first quadrillionaire in history—if only for a moment. Due to a PayPal glitch, a 56-year-old Pennsylvanian man named Chris Reynolds’ PayPal account displayed a balance of $92 quadrillion. The mistake was soon found and fixed.
When he looked at his final balance of $92,233,720,368,547,800 on his PayPal statement, Chris Reynolds, 56, said he was astounded.
When making online purchases, customers often use the online payment service PayPal.
But the mistake was swiftly corrected, and when he logged in again, his balance was empty.
Reynolds stated, “I just feel like a million bucks.” I initially believed that I owed quadrillions. It came as quite a shock.
