Whale Alert crypto tracker has detected six large transactions, carrying Ripple-affiliated XRP tokens, over the past two days. One of them was a mind-blowing one as it moved 270 million tokens in one lump.

Nearly half of the total amount was withdrawn from the Bitstamp exchange, according to data shared by Whale Alert in the tweets.

574 million XRP transfers spotted

According to the aforementioned crypto tracking service popular with the community, a total amount of 573.7 million XRP tokens was transacted—a sum that constitutes $178,004,318 in fiat.

A total of 269,850,200 XRP was moved in a single transfer worth $88,195,018 between two anonymous wallets.

The rest of the sum was split in pieces that contained from 90 million to 40 million XRP. Between these biggest and smallest amounts, there were also lumps carrying 60,000,000 and 70,000,000 tokens.
