Ripple has again sold large amount of XRP as it joined exchanges in wiring nearly 320 million XRP
Whale Alert crypto tracker has spotted six transactions on XRPL that moved significantly large amounts of XRP. Among them, 120 million coins were moved in a single lump.
Ripple has sent a massive amount of XRP to be sold or transferred to an ODL platform.
Ripple moves 60 million, 318 million sent in total
Whale Alert has detected half a dozen XRP transfers over the past 24 hours. Ripple has shifted 60,000,000 XRP from its RL92-MN wallet to its address RL18-VN. The latter is usually used by the company to transfer XRP to ODL platforms that collaborate with Ripple; otherwise, it sends crypto to Ripple’s customers — banks, exchanges, etc. — or simply to sell XRP in order to get fiat for the company to cover operational expenses.
From RL18-VN, 40,000,000 XRP were sent on to an unknown address. The rest of the 317.8 million XRP was moved with the participation of such exchanges as Bittrex, Bitso, Bitstamp and custodial service BitGo.
