Increased XRP Whale Transfers
Earlier afternoon, the Whale Alert crypto tracker discovered another huge XRP transfer. Coins.ph, a cryptocurrency trading platform headquartered in the Philippines, received a payment of $14,297,008 from an unidentified individual or organization. It’s a Ripple ODL partner; thus, it’s one of those crypto exchanges. According to Bithomp’s data, the transaction was started from the Ripple wallet RL18-VN, publicly disclosed. The Ripple-affiliated tokens are often sent outside of Ripple to be sold on exchanges, sent to corporate clients, or deposited in a cryptocurrency custody service like BitGo.
Coinbase exchange sent a total of 88.6 million XRP a week ago. Some members of the XRP Army took this to mean that the platform was getting ready to allow XRP trade again after it was banned in December 2021. A significant legal lawsuit against Ripple Labs and two of its most senior employees, Brad Garlinghouse and Christopher Larsen, sparked the SEC to ban the firm.
From $0.67773 to $0.74015, Ripple-affiliated cryptocurrency XRP has gained 9.21 percent in the last 24 hours. Before then, the bears were able to drive the coin price down by 14.80 percent, from $0.79607 to $0.67773.
