XRP News Today – XRP Price Forecast – XRP Ledger – Ripple News Today – What Is Ripple To To?
According to the report by Whale Alert, Ripple moved a significant amount of XRP in three transactions between the 8th and 9th of June. Out of the three transaction, one was worth 20 million XRP while the remaining 20 million was split between the other two. While the address of the receiver was unidentified, investigations revealed that a similar transaction was made to the same wallet address a while ago. This receiver wallet is most likely being used by Ripple to move funds. At the time of writing, the total amount of XRP in that account was about 22.323 million.
Members of the cryptocurrency community have their speculations about what Ripple intends to do with all that XRP. While some say that the receiver address also belongs to Ripple, others said that Ripple is moving the funds in a bid to flood the market with XRP tokens and manipulate the price to the benefit of institutional investors. In the past, the address sent XRP to exchanges like Huobi, Digifinex, Hitbtc. So, it’s difficult to determine if someone is buying XRP from Ripple directly or the company is just playing games. If the company is deliberately trying to manipulate the price, that would be bad press for Ripple that would add to the already long list of negative press.
