In a move mirroring broader cryptocurrency market enthusiasm sparked by the SEC's historic spot Bitcoin ETF approval, XRP experienced a robust 6.5% price increase today. This upswing was further amplified by a significant transfer of 22 million XRP, valued at roughly $13.13 million, from Upbit, South Korea's premier crypto exchange.

Whale Alert, a widely utilized blockchain transaction tracker, initially reported the movement, igniting speculation within the XRP community. The sizable sum was transferred from Upbit to an undisclosed wallet, prompting questions about the motive behind the action.

Adding to the intrigue, Bithomp data revealed that the recipient wallet, created in September 2023, swiftly distributed the XRP across major exchanges like Binance, Bitget, Bybit and BingX. Its current balance stands slightly above 951,723 XRP.
