Shares of Amazon soared following the company's 4Q results, sending the company's value above $1 trillion.
Those results were boosted by web services and brushed off concerns about the cost of one-day Prime delivery.
It is not known what the proceeds of the sale will go to, but Seeking Alpha says in the past Bezos has said he would sell at least $1B of Amazon stock a year to fund his rocket startup, Blue Origin.
It is not the only sale of Amazon shares worth noting.
Bezos' ex-wife, MacKenzie Bezos, sold off some of the stock that she received as part of the couple's divorce agreement.
MacKenzie Bezos sold about $400 million worth of the shares.
Word of the sale came indirectly, in an end of year filing that Jeff Bezos made with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
MacKenzie's Amazon holdings still amount to nearly $36 billion.
