Whales are busy moving their XRP holdings in huge numbers after the crypto asset’s recent spike to yearly highs.

In all, a total of just over 544 million XRP worth $352.8 million was transferred in the last 24 hours. One unknown wallet transferred 100 million XRP worth $65.2 million to a separate unknown wallet. The same unknown wallet sent another 100 million XRP to the same receiving wallet in an identical transaction one minute later.

The Ripple Genesis Wallet also transferred 116.5 million XRP worth $75.7 million to an unknown wallet.

Additionally, Binance received a total of 34 million XRP worth about $22 million from a single unknown wallet across two separate transactions.

On top of these transactions, whales moved 194.2 million XRP worth $124.7 million in the last day. Four of the transfers involve moving the XRP from unknown wallets to crypto exchanges.

One transaction moved the XRP from Ripple to an unknown wallet and another transaction moved the XRP from Genesis to an unknown wallet. Here’s the summary of the recent transactions:

  • 9.5 million XRP worth $6.2 million transferred from wallet of unknown origin to Coinbase
  • 9.6 million XRP worth $6.4 million transferred from wallet of unknown origin to Coinbase
  • 13 million XRP worth $8.3 million transferred from wallet of unknown origin to Bittrex
  • 102.1 million XRP worth 65.9 million transferred from Genesis to wallet of unknown origin
  • 10 million XRP worth $6.4 million transferred from Ripple to wallet of unknown origin
  • 50 million XRP worth $31.5 million transferred from unknown of unknown origin to Bybit

Meanwhile, Ripple unlocked its monthly allowance of one billion XRP from escrow as whales moved large amounts of the third-largest cryptocurrency on Monday.

The San Francisco payments startup moved 500 million XRP from escrow to one Ripple wallet and then another 500 million to a separate Ripple Wallet, according to the crypto tracker Whale Alert. The transactions, worth about $654 million in total, processed for the combined cost of far less than a penny.

Ripple holds more than half of the total supply of XRP. In December of 2017, the company pledged not to sell all of its tokens at once, locking up 55 billion XRP into a series of cryptographically secured escrow accounts.

Ripple set up a schedule to release one billion XRP each month, sell a portion, and return the rest back into escrow.

Although the transfers free up funds for the company to sell for cash this month, Ripple is expected to unload only a small percentage of the unlocked one billion XRP, as it has in previous quarters.
