According to Whale Alert, a crypto platform that traces large cryptocurrency transfers, over the past 24 hours, several massive transactions were made. They shoveled nearly 640 million XRP coins. Ripple participated in moving these funds.

636 million XRP on move

Whale Alert's Twitter account has detected 14 transactions, carrying XRP sums from 30 million to 200 million.

The biggest transaction here shifted a whopping 200,000,000 XRP coins from Korean exchange Bithumb, and the smaller one moved 140,000,000 XRP, sending this crypto from FTX to Binance.

The rest of the 636 million XRP was moved by whales, between such crypto exchanges as Bitso, Bittrex, Binance and Bitstamp.

Ripple sent a 50,000,000 XRP chunk to its RL18-VN reserve wallet. From this address, the company often sends crypto outside – to its customers, exchanges and financial institutions.
