The volume of XRP sold in Q2 2022 surpassed the $273.27 million recorded in the previous quarter, Ripple stated.
“XRP sales by Ripple, net of purchases, were $408.9M vs. $273.27M USD the previous quarter.”
Ripple further notes:
“Ripple has continued to engage in sales solely related to ODL, and these volumes have ramped up substantially as Ripple’s ODL business expanded globally,” an excerpt from Ripple’s Q2, 2022 financial report reads.
The blockchain company reported that it conducted XRP purchases from the secondary market following a recent ODL adoption surge.
Per Ripple, it will continue to purchase XRP from the secondary market as the demand for ODL continues to gain momentum.
Ripple’s XRP sales in connection to ODL adoption account for only 0.47% of the global XRP volume for Q2 2022, CryptoCompare TopTier (CCTT) volumes suggest.
Meanwhile, the massive cryptocurrency market crash also impacted XRP transaction volume. The price of XRP and transaction volumes took a major hit following a series of political and macroeconomic events. Ripple’s Q2 volume declined 22% on QoQ.
“Volumes have declined 22% QoQ to an ADV of $862M down from $1.1B.”
Aside from Ripple’s transaction volume, the blockchain company also provided insight about its monthly token unlock. In Q2 2022, Ripple unlocked 3 billion XRP for three months but returned 2.3 billion XRP to its escrow account later. The remaining tokens were used to cater to the company’s day-to-day expenses.
