As reported by popular crypto tracker Whale Alert, which tracks down large crypto transfers, over the past 24 hours, three major transactions have been spotted, carrying a total of 230 million XRP coins. Most of it was withdrawn from Binance exchange.

In the meantime, Ripple-affiliated coin XRP has been reported to have reached a major new milestone across social media platforms.

230 million XRP on move

Three "heavy" transactions were detected, carrying 150,000,000, and two transfers, moving 40,000,000 XRP coins each. Overall, these three transactions moved close to $80 million worth of XRP.

The largest chunk — 150 million coins — was moved from Binance exchange. Details provided by XRP explorer Bithomp show that the receiver's wallet tagged by Whale Alert as "unknown" also belongs to Binance. This was an internal transfer of XRP.

As for the other two transactions, 40 million coins were moved from a Bittrex wallet to Bitso exchange, a major Ripple ODL partner based in Mexico. The other 40 million XRP went to Bitstamp, also from an address that belongs to Bittrex.
