Ripple Locks 600M XRP in Escrow, as Whales Move 612M XRP


Written By:

Leading blockchain company Ripple has locked a whopping 600 million XRP tokens in escrow. 

According to data from Whale Alert, a cryptocurrency whale tracking service, Ripple locked 600M XRP tokens worth $246.6M in its escrow wallet. It bears mentioning that Ripple first moved the funds from two of its wallets to the escrow wallet before locking them in escrow. 

The first transaction took place around 12 hours ago. According to Whale Alert, Ripple transferred 500M XRP ($200M) to its escrow wallet. A few minutes later, Ripple moved another 100M XRP tokens ($39.65M) to the escrow wallet.

Immediately after the funds were deposited in the escrow wallet, Ripple then locked the 600M XRP in escrow in two different transactions. Around 13 hours ago, the leading blockchain company locked the first 500M XRP tokens in escrow, while the second transaction took place a few minutes later. 

It is worth noting that the transaction occurred a few hours after Ripple unlocked 1 billion XRP as part of its monthly token unlock initiative.

Around 10 hours ago, a whopping 206,581,145 (206.58M) XRP tokens were sent from an unknown wallet to another anonymous address. The transaction was valued at around $83.76 million. 

Earlier today, an unknown whale transferred 35M XRP tokens ($14.5 million) to a Bitstamp-affiliated wallet. In a similar development, another unknown cryptocurrency whale moved 26M XRP ($10.7M) to Latin American exchange Bitso.
