The cryptocurrency market appears to be having a major comeback as the medium and long-term outlook for Bitcoin becomes bullish and whales start moving funds in XLM and XRP. On cryptocurrency Twitter, whale watchers noticed that 507 million units of XRP which is approximately $159 million were transfers from cryptocurrency exchange Bittrex to Upbit, the South Korean exchange. The post on Twitter from Whale Alert was as follows:

“We tracked 50 transactions of 10 million #XRP each from #Bittrex to #Upbit the past hour. The total value of the transactions was $159,536,070 USD.”

Shortly after that transfer was made, another big move was recorded. About 10 million units of XLM was moved from Bittrex to an unknown cryptocurrency wallet. Each transaction was equal to about $867,000. This brought the total amount of XRP and XLM that was moved within a few hours to $727 million. Whale Alert insists that someone is moving significant amounts of XRP and XLM confirming that this isn’t a bug.
