Major crypto tracking service Whale Alert has spread the word about a series of large XRP transactions performed by two top-tier South Korean exchanges: Bithumb and Coinone.

Beyond that, figures shared by analytics data vendor Santiment show that XRP address activity is spiking, which is a good sign for the Ripple-affiliated cryptocurrency.

127.3 million XRP on the move

As per tweets published by the aforementioned blockchain tracker, over the past day, Bithumb and Coinone have performed four XRP transfers. Bithumb moved XRP lumps worth 80,000,000, 20,000,000 and 12,000,000—112 million coins in total. Coinone shifted 13,344,236 XRP.

All four transactions were made between the internal wallets of the exchanges. Earlier, Bitfinex stated that Bithumb is part of Ripple's ODL corridor that has not been officially announced yet.

"Buzzing XRP address activity is a good sign"

According to analytics company Santiment, during the period between late October 2021 and now, the activity of addresses belonging to XRP market participants has been pretty high—far higher than in May of last year when the pandemic struck the crypto market and the global economy.

In October, the number of active XRP addresses went as high as 147,000, but by Dec. 12, it went down to 95,300. Back in May 2020, there were approximately 5,000 active XRP addresses, according to the Santiment chart shared by major XRP community member XRPcryptowolf.

He stated that increasing XRP address activity is "definitely a good sign."

At the time of writing, XRP holds eighth place on the CoinMarketCap scale and is changing hands at $0.8272.
