Three transactions, carrying 45,800,000, 31,000,000 and 37,000,000 XRP, took place earlier, as noted by the aforementioned crypto tracking platform. Together, they are worth $42.7 million in fiat equivalent.
Bithomp XRP-focused platform revealed that the first two transfers were conducted between whales, whose wallets are sitting on the Bitso and Bittrex exchanges. The last one was made by crypto holders, whose addresses are linked to Bitstamp and Bittrex (once again).

With the recent developments of the long-running XRP case of the SEC against Ripple, the XRP community hopes it can be settled later in 2023. XRP whales have become more active since the start of fall 2022, and recently some exchanges began listing new XRP pairs, e.g. Bitrue.
