One of its transactions – for 30-mln XRP – brought up questions from XRP enthusiast Alex Beadi, who addressed the top executives of the DLT behemoth, Brad Garlinghouse and David Schwartz – asking them to explain the 60 mln XRP sales at Bitstamp allegedly made by Ripple.

The user accused Ripple management of supporting XRP inflation by selling more of the company’s coins.
