Of particular interest is the revelation that 100 million XRP tokens were withdrawn from the Coincheck exchange today, amounting to approximately $51.6 million. The withdrawal was directed to an address identified as "r99Q," which has been active since February, with an initial transfer from the same exchange.

Analysis of the address's transaction history reveals a consistent pattern of receiving XRP transfers from Coincheck, strongly indicating that the address is affiliated with the exchange itself.

Coincheck is a prominent cryptocurrency exchange known for its strong presence in Japan. It is regulated by the country's Financial Services Agency (FSA) and audited by the Japan Blockchain Association. It boasts substantial liquidity, $100 million trading volume and traffic, positioning it as a key player in the Asian region.
