Julian Assange Net Worth Jump To Julian Assange's Stats
Creator of the infamous whistle blowing website WikiLeaks, the Australian born Julian Assange has an estimated net worth of $996,775.  Now he's in the fight for his life to keep spending it.  

His wealth comes mainly from his writing that includes a book deal with Alfred A.  Knopf for his autobiography for $800,000.  His ability to polarize people around him and stir controversy has been one of his primary assets, although sometimes a hindrance.  

After efforts to include Assange in a memoir, Canongate Publishing ended up publishing an unauthorized biography after giving him five months to read and submit information for which he never responded.

Assange has drawn both praise and ridicule as an international whistleblower.  His website that publishes secret or classified government documents and emails obtained by computer hacking has made him a cult hero or villain, depending on one’s point of view.   He was a security specialist and computer hacker who turned his skills to publicizing information not made available for public scrutiny.  

His notorious reputation has not prevented him from receiving awards and nominations for awards around the world including the 2009 Amnesty International Media Award and Readers' Choice for TIME magazine's 2010 Person of the Year.  In 2011, he landed the Sydney Peace Foundation gold medal and the Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism.  He even received a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2011 by Snorre Valen, a Norwegian parliamentarian.

The 40-year-old Assange’s life since a teenager has been inundated with controversy, when he began his life as a hacker at age 16.  Subsequently, he was investigated for his activities by the Australian police a few years later.  Always gravitating toward IT systems technology, he has worked as a security consultant, a journalism researcher and formed a company called Earthman Technology in 1998.  

Currently, Assange has been battling Swedish authorities over allegations of sexual improprieties.  He has been fighting extradition from Britain to Sweden.


Bottom Line: Even though Julian Assange brings in more than $100,000 per year, we estimate Julian loses ($50,538) per year after lifestyle, taxes and other expenses. RichButBroke.com predicts that at his current pace of spending, Julian Assange will be bankrupt in 20 years! Slow your roll Julian!
