Santiment data aggregator has reported that as XRP dropped below the $0.03 level and to the seventh place by market cap on Friday, unusually high activity among XRP wallets was noticed.

Amounts larger than $100,000 worth of XRP were shifted by these wallets.

Highest wallet activity and sentiment since spring

Per recent tweet of the data provider, the analytics team has spotted the highest amount of whale XRP transactions since May 13 as these wallets performed transfers of $100,000+ in Ripple-affiliated XRP tokens.

Besides, they claim that the XRP sentiment is currently at the highest level since April this year.

On Friday, as a result of a massive crypto sell-off, XRP slipped to the seventh position on the top 10 scale of CoinMarketCap, losing 10% of its market value and sliding below Binance's BUSD stablecoin.

The difference between the two coins now constitutes around $2 billion in market capitalization.
