Following the recovery on the cryptocurrency market, XRP whales are moving large quantities of the cryptocurrency between private wallets, as Whale Alert tracking bot reports. The reason behind those transactions remains undisclosed.

According to the transaction page, a wallet ending in DG9Ad sent $55 million worth of XRP to a wallet ending in BZcEXg at 6:27 a.m. UTC. But while the initial notification states that the transaction was made from an unknown wallet, the hash data suggests that the sender wallet is tied to Bithumb cryptocurrency exchange.

The recipient wallet currently holds 60 million XRP coins and recently sent 30 million coins to two other addresses, which could indicate that the whale is either redistributing funds or moving them to another exchange.

The recipient wallet is constantly receiving large transactions from various addresses, suggesting that it is either tied to the exchange or is actually the address of a crypto-related services like OTC trading desk.
