Ripple keeps sending XRP away

Apart from helping its partners improve their infrastructure for cross-border payments, the blockchain behemoth Ripple often makes direct XRP transfers.

The company often provides its new partners with large amounts of XRP, with strict restrictions regarding selling those assets.

Earlier today, Whale Alert reported that Ripple had transferred 75 mln XRP (that is $22,505,325) from its Funding Wallet1 to another Funding Wallet.

However, the purpose of this payment was not explained. However, a Twitter user in the comment thread speculated that this could be Ripple buying XRP from the open market.
