516 million XRP on move, Ripple sends XRP to ODL
Whale Alert spotted several consecutive transactions, carrying from 30 million to 200 million of Ripple-affiliated XRP tokens. The transfers were conducted over the past 24 hours.
Data from XRP-focused Bithomp platform shows that fintech giant Ripple sent 30,000,000 XRP to Mexico-based crypto unicorn Bitso.
