The three "first" stages will be retrievable. Private people paying the costs to be onboard, the Dragon will be mostly automated.

So, what tech billionaires are paying the estimated $100 million?

For context that is Martin Shkreli's estimated net worth, so while he would be my first choice I don't see him selling it all just to have yet another 'haha I'm rich, screw you' thing.

Shkreli don't need a return capsule. SpaceX launches out of Vandenberg, same place SAC test-launches Minuteman IIIs. Just lead him to the wrong pad and let him come down hard over Polynesia.
