    Jed McCaleb Sells 214.6 Million XRP In Last Three Weeks

    XRPScan data has indicated that over the past couple of weeks, ex-CTO of Ripple, Jed McCaleb, has released a whopping 214.5 million XRP tokens to be sold after he received 408 million coins from Ripple. Notably, McCaleb is one of the co-founders of Ripple.

    As per XRPScan, since June 3, McCaleb has conducted over 19 transactions, pushing large amounts of XRP from his “tacostand” wallet to crypto exchanges. Three consecutive transfers carried 16,353,884 XRP, seven transfers were worth 12,915,667 XRP each, seven carried 8,221,608 XRP and three last moved 6,036,204 XRP each.

    Jed received 408 million XRP from Ripple on the same day he started selling - June 3. The total amount of XRP in fiat shifted by Jed since that day is equal to $124,354,817. 408 million XRP sent by Ripple to its former high-ranking executive amounts to $235,984,954. 

    According to previous reports, McCaleb had sold 453 million XRP in May. jed.tequ.dev website shows a chart of McCaleb releasing his XRP holdings to sell. Currently, there are three forecasts as to when the former Ripple CTO is likely to run out of his XRP riches. This depends on how much he will be selling per week from now. If it’s 7,597,207 XRP on average, then McCaleb might run out of XRP by November 12 (142 days). 

    Ripple Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

    As things stand, the Ripple price should attempt to break above the 200-day SMA to reverse the bearish narrative.
