Popular DLT tracking service Whale Alert, which regularly shares the details of large crypto transfers made and received by individuals and entities, has spread the word about some more substantial XRP transactions made recently.

As per its recent posts in Twitter, over the last 12-hour period, a whopping 145 million XRP has been pushed between major crypto trading venues with the participation of Ripple Labs.

40 million coins on the move from Ripple

According to tweets shared by the crypto tracker, over the past 11 hours, several large XRP stashes worth $134,133,760 in fiat have been shifted.

The aforementioned DLT tracker noticed five large crypto transactions, in which Ripple, several digital exchanges and custodial platform BitGo took part.

Ripple sent lumps of 15 million and 25 million to its alternative RL18-VN address, which is often used to send XRP to the crypto giant's partners, clients and crypto exchanges—to be sold or to support the liquidity of the Ripple-affiliated cryptocurrency.
