Whale Alert has reported a significant XRP transaction made by Ripple in the late hours of yesterday. According to the crypto whale tracking service, Ripple Labs moved 100 million XRP worth $39.2 million to a wallet tagged as unknown.

However, an analysis by TheCryptoBasic revealed that Ripple owns the wallet where the funds were sent. The shifted XRP will likely be sent to exchanges to support XRP liquidity on crypto trading platforms.

Furthermore, Ripple could send the funds to clients of its On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) solution. It is worth noting that the ODL solution utilizes XRP as a bridge currency for cross-border settlements. 

Ripple has been relatively active in moving vast chunks of XRP in recent times. According to data from Whale Alert, the leading blockchain company shuffled 510 million XRP in a series of transactions two days ago.

While Whale Alert reported that unknown whales made the transactions, data from the XRP-focused analytics platform Bithomp shows that the sender of both funds was Ripple.

These transactions come three weeks after Ripple unlocked 1 billion XRP from escrow. The leading blockchain company locked back 600 million XRP in escrow, while the remaining 400 million XRP were set aside to cater to the company’s day-to-day operations.
