Over 1,900 XRPL Wallets Now Hold 1M+ XRP While 28 Wallets Hold At Least 500M XRP


Written By:

Recent data from the XRP rich list resource confirms that, despite an observable decline, over 1,900 wallets on the XRP Ledger (XRPL) still hold 1M+ XRP while 28 wallets hold more than 500M XRP tokens.

Amid the sustained bearishness, XRP has witnessed a noticeable drop in millionaire addresses, as selling pressure builds. However, data confirms that some investor categories have taken to accumulation when others are reducing their holdings.

Rich-list.info, a community-driven XRPL-based resource, confirms this trend. The Crypto Basic called attention to similar data in a report from Sept. 20. Notably, at the time of the report, the number of XRPL wallets holding at least 1 million XRP stood at 1,994.

However, per the recent data, these accounts have dropped to 1,961, indicating that the network saw up to 33 addresses lose their millionaire status as a result of a reduction in their balances. This drop majorly came from addresses holding between 1 million and 5 million XRP.

This tier of addresses boasted 1,460 wallets as of Sept. 20. The figure has dropped by 28 to 1,432 as of press time. Wallets holding between 5 million and 10 million XRP also declined, dropping from 157 on Sept. 20 to 150 today. In addition, their cumulative balance has slumped from 1.058 billion XRP to 1.013 billion XRP.
