XRP Whale Makes Mass Transfer Amid Price Volatility



In light of recent developments in the cryptocurrency market, XRP has once again attracted the attention of investors and the community as the crypto asset has witnessed another massive whale activity. XRP Whales Move Over 50 Million Tokens to CEX A recent report revealed that an XRP whale recently moved over 50 million tokens to cryptocurrency exchanges. On-chain data shows that the whale has been conducting these types of transactions for the past few weeks. Interestingly, these whale transactions have created a whirlwind of speculation among crypto market enthusiasts around the world after they emerged during the token price crash. According to data from on-chain tracker Whale Alert, the whale transferred 50.7 million tokens to centralized exchanges (CEX). Whale Alert has revealed that the aforementioned funds were transferred to CEX in two separate transactions. The whale transactions came amid the token’s downward movement, sparking speculation about its effect on the price of XRP. The on-chain tracker reported that a whopping 26 million XRP tokens valued at approximately $15.22 million were produced in the first transaction. The data shows that the unknown address identified as r4wf7enWPx…5XgwHh4Rzn moved the tokens to the Mexico-based Bitso crypto exchange. Meanwhile, the second transaction moved 24.7 million XRP tokens valued at approximately $14.68 at the time the transfer was made. The same wallet address mentioned above had transferred the funds to another crypto exchange, Bitstamp. It is noteworthy that the aforementioned wallet address has been orchestrating these types of transactions to CEXs for some time now. Last week, Whale Alert detected the wallet address transferring over 48 million XRP tokens to Bitstamp and Bitso. In less than two weeks, the wallet address has moved over 138 million tokens to cryptocurrency platforms. At the current price of the digital asset, it is valued at over $79 million.

He highlighted that the asset’s bulls have been steadfast in “defending this channel,” not allowing anything to stop them from “buying the dip.” He stated that the bulls have kept the price above the “Val Hell Line”, preventing a “daily candlestick” from closing below it. So far, Egrag has noted that “a slight retest” around $0.55 appears to be “fairly standard” market behavior.
