Ten million XRP was shifted to Ripple's ODL corridor in Luxembourg, Bitstamp.

Ripple customer Azimo integrates with Alipay, halves remittance fees for Chinese expats
According to a press release shared with U.Today, Ripple customer Azimo intends to make things easier for those who wish to make remittances from Australia using its platform.
Azimo has been working through RippleNet since April 2020 and has operated as a fintech firm in the European remittance market since 2012.
In July, Azimo registered with AUSTRAC to work as a funds transferring firm. They are now offering fund transferring services to Australians, enabling them to send cash to more than 200 countries, including Thailand, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.
They will be offering fees twice as low as Australians currently have to pay for remittances using banks and traditional payment operators—7.5 percent.
According to the Azimo CEO, Richard Ambrose, approximately 30 percent of Australians live abroad and regularly send money back home.
Azimo also intends to start working with Chinese expats living in Australia and, after Azimo's integration with the Alipay giant, they will be able to seamlessly send money to China just using their Alipay ID.
