Blink-182 is still one of the bands that influence a lot of people. Even though there have been so many changes in the band and it has gone through ups and downs, both the current and former members of the band manage to keep their fame and commercial success.
As the founder and the frontline of the band named Blink-182, people are especially curious about the net worth of Mark Hoppus. So, how much is his net worth? The information about it is featured in this page.
As of June 2021, Mark Hoppus has an estimated net worth of $80 million. His wealth mostly comes from the concerts and albums of Blink-182. He is named as the richest and the only remaining founder member of Blink-182. Not only that, he also has a clothing brand named HiMyNameISMark.

In 1992, Mark Hoppus started his career. At the time, he just moved to San Diego. His sister was attending high school in San Diego and had just befriended Tom DeLonge, another founder of Blink-182. He and Tom became close and used to spend their time playing music together in the garage of the DeLonge family.
Then, these two recruited Scott Raynor as the drummer and named their group as Blink. Shortly after the group was built, Mark left the band due to an argument with his girlfriend. It was short as he was lured to re-join the band when Tom said about his aim to record a demo tape. It was the start of the band gaining recognition. Thanks to the demo, they started having the chance to perform their first live shows. Its early success was followed by a record label. Their first album, Cheshire Cat, was dropped in 1995 and it was a hit.
The success of the debut album was followed by a second album entitled Dude Ranch consisting of the hit Dammit. This album was the first of mainstream success. The formation was changed but it did not really matter for the group because they kept releasing bop after bop. Blink-182 wobbled when there was a conflict with the founders. Fortunately, they reunited and released another album and even toured together.
Mark Hoppus teamed up with Tom DeLonnge on a few entrepreneurial ventures. One of the most popular is Atticus clothing and Macbeth Footwear. Years after they decided to collaborate, Mark sold his stock in these companies.
After tasting success with his band, Mark Hoppus purchased a simple property located in San Diego. He got by with spending $315,000. According to some sources, this one still belongs to him. In 2013, there was a report that a member of Blink-182 decided to rent out his home in Beverly Hills. That was a good choice as he was living in London at the time. Actually, the property was purchased by him in 2004 for $3.65 million. After he and his family stayed in England, they planned to rent their place for $15,000 each month. The 3,390 square feet place consists of a pool and an outdoor fireplace. In 2016, Mark Hoppus did not continue his plan to rent his home and he decided to list it instead, even though it was reported that he had moved back to Beverly Hills from London. The price tag of the home that is located in the chic neighborhood of Trousdale Estates in Beverly Hills was $10 million.
