718.3M XRP Taken In By Ripple Labs 

Whale Alert data recently indicated that over twenty-four hours, a jaw-dropping amount of 718.3 million XRP was kicked over by several crypto asset companies – Ripple, Binance, and two more digital exchanges. Over half of that amount was sent by Ripple Labs in two massive lumps. The total worth of the transferred XRP amounted to $585,946,261. 

Data shared by Whale Alert showed that Ripple behemoth conducted two mammoth-sized transactions of 460,669,182 and 120,000,000 XRP. That totaled $364,871,463 and $95,718,622 in fiat. The transfers were made from the same Ripple’s wallet rLzoWkN8Rc1MV5rs8rAfo5uTREJ1A3Z9ak, which had zero coins left after that. The funds went to different addresses belonging to the company. 

Another three impressive XRP transactions (not as large as the ones made by Ripple, though) were spotted by Whale Alert before those performed by Ripple. Binance shifted 80 million XRP between its wallets. An anonymous wallet moved 20 million XRP to Bitso – the first crypto unicorn in Latin America and the leading exchange in Mexico and the region, also an ODL corridor of Ripple. 

According to the data from Bitstamp website, this crypto was sent from the US-based Bittrex exchange. Besides, Bitso shifted 17,700,000 XRP internally. Another transaction from Bittrex delivered 20 million XRP to another Ripple ODL corridor – Bitstamp, located in Luxembourg.

Ripple Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Ripple price chart, we see that XRP has made a strong recovery over the weekend. If the current sentiment persists, we could see XRP push to $0.85.
