Notably, the movement of Ripple whales occurred at a time when the XRP cryptocurrency was just gearing up. As such, the token is currently trading at $0.27 against USD, with a quick surge of 1.59 percent over the past 24Hrs.
Moreover, the transaction isn’t the new in the crypto market either; previously, Whale Alert reported yet another XRP transactions, which were also counted 20,000,000 XRP tokens.
However, in this case, wallets used to transfer the 20 Million XRP were known to users – it took place between Funding Wallet 1 and Coinbase. While Ripple’s co-founder Chris Larsen reportedly activated funding Wallet 1, the amount equivalent to 5,559,554 USD (as on October 7) was transferred to a wallet that belongs to Coinbase crypto exchange.
However, other such transactions that caught the attention of the crypto community were XRP worth $7 Million; in-fact, numerous whales transactions accounted for the nearly similar value.
It has been seen that the whales’ movement, particularly in the case of XRP, is growing. On the other hand, Ripple, the parent company of XRP, is continually seeking new opportunities to boost the adoption of XRP, which currently stands with the market capitalization of $11,911,107,897.
