As per data shared by XRPL Monitor crypto tracking service, the "rebellious" fintech firm Ripple, which is seriously considering relocating from the U.S., and its On-Demand-Liquidity corridors, has wired a gargantuan 45 mln XRP over the past 24 hours. This is the crypto equivalent of $11,540,296.
Ripple decacorn wires 20 mln XRP, Bitbank moves 25 mln XRP
The popular XRP tracking bot on Twitter has published data saying that the blockchain decacorn Ripple has conducted 20 mln XRP in two transactions.
Ten million XRP was moved between Ripple's wallets. The other half went to the company's ODL corridor, Bitstamp, based in Luxembourg, Europe.
Internal XRP transfers in Ripple are conducted frequently when the company allocates funds for operational expenses, to be sent to its partners (large financial institutions) and to crypto exchanges to support the coin's liquidity.
From time to time, Ripple also sends XRP to its partner MoneyGram, who collaborates with it when it comes to ODL corridors.
The other half of the 45-mln-XRP pie was sent by the Japanese crypto exchange Bitbank, another ODL platform.
Peter Brandt claims XRP to be a security
Recently, legendary trader Peter Brandt tweeted that the U.S. SEC would have already classified XRP as a security if it had any idea of how crypto works.
The savvy trader often criticizes the fourth largest cryptocurrency, XRP, calling it a manipulated scam and accusing Ripple of manipulating the crypto market.
In October, Ripple gained a partial victory in a long-lasting class action lawsuit that accuses XRP of being an unregistered security.
