The Hurun Research Institute has released its annual ranking of the richest people in China, and many of the individuals on the list are associated with big websites. In second place on the list was Pony Ma of Web and technology company Tencent, which owns WeChat, Tencent Music, Riot Games and WeBank, as well as many other Web properties.
