Pierre Omidyar net worth: Pierre Omidyar is a well known Iranian-American entrepreneur and philanthropist who has a net worth of $7.8 billion. Pierre Omidyar is the founder of eBay. He earned the vast majority of his his net worth when eBay went public in September 1998. His net worth should come as no surprise to those who know about the enormous success that eBay has seen – it's one of the only websites to emerge from the "dot com bubble" that is still a thriving and successful business today. He was 28 years old when he wrote the computer code that would eventually become eBay. At that time, the program went by the name of "Auction Web," and was hosted on a site he had created for information on the ebola virus! The oft repeated story of eBay having been started in order for Omidyar's wife to trade Pez dispensers was actually a clever myth created by eBay's public relations department, and does not actually reflect the reality of the situation. Besides eBay, Omidyar has been involved in several other projects, most recently a Hawaiian news service called Civil Beat. Omidyar is also a well-known philanthropist, having started an organization by the name of "Omidyar Network" which has been billed as a "philanthropic investment firm dedicated to harnessing the power of markets to create opportunity for people to improve their lives."
