The Twitter bot XRPL Monitor has spotted 69.7 mln XRP (totaling $13,622,069) transferred between several wallets.
Among the owners of those addresses was the San-Francisco-based blockchain heavyweight Ripple and Bitso – Ripple’s partner working with its ODL remittance product with the largest volume of funds wired.

A few hours later, two consecutive transactions were made by the Ripple-backed Mexican exchange Bitso.
This platform is currently the largest On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) remittance corridor working with the XRP/MXN pair set up by another of Ripple’s partners – the remittance behemoth MoneyGram.
The rest of the gargantuan amount was wired by the major Korean platform Bithumb – 44.1 mln XRP. That is $8,618,841 in traditional fiat USD.
XRP losing top-3 spot to Tether
Over the past few days, Tether’s stablecoin USDT has pushed Ripple’s XRP from its top-three position twice on CoinMarketCap.
After the second time, USDT managed to hold its position, with XRP remaining in the fourth position. The difference between Tether and XRP’s market caps, at the moment, is slightly under $200 mln.
Ripple’s MoneyGram partners with Uber
As earlier reported by U.Today, Ripple’s major partner MoneyGram, which utilizes Ripple’s ODL (and two tranches of Ripple investments in 2019), has struck a partnership with the global cab giant Uber.
Due to the crisis caused by the pandemic and a new trend of using digital payments instead of cash caused by it, Uber drivers and couriers will get a discount on digital payments via MoneyGram from now on.
