Whales’ XRP movements are on the increase.


According to the cryptocurrency tracking platform Whale Alert, a hefty amount of XRP tokens were moved in a few hours. The transactions were conducted mostly by unknown whales. It is interesting to note that Ripple was also involved in the latest round of large XRP transfers. 

Data provided by Whale Alert shows that the blockchain company transferred a whopping 100 million XRP tokens to an unknown wallet. At the time, the transaction was worth $49.16 million. 

Rationale Behind the Transaction

The recipient’s identity was unknown in the hours leading up to press time. However, the transfer is expected to be related to the blockchain company’s On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) solution. There is a possibility that Ripple made the transfer to a client of its ODL solution. It is worth mentioning that Ripple’s ODL uses XRP as a bridge currency for cross-border settlements.
