Ripple and XRP Major crypto whale moves XRP worth $160 million amid market downturn


Cryptocurrency whales are on the move again. Blockchain watchdog, Whale Alert notified that Kraken Exchange, a Digital Currency Exchange, transferred roughly $161.2 million worth of XRP to an unidentified wallet.


The deposit of XRP worth 500 million is the greatest sum received by the address since a contribution of XRP worth 300 million from Kraken in November 2021, according to on-chain statistics of the recipient wallet.



Since then, the wallet address has only been used to record transactions involving sums of one XRP or less.

The significant whale transaction was made just days after analytics company Santiment disclosed that XRP tokens whale transactions had risen to a three-month high. On-chain XRP transactions worth more than $100,000 have reportedly surpassed levels last seen in May 2022. Additionally, the analytics tool revealed that investor sentiment for XRP had reached a four-month high.


  • Over the past few years, Cryptocurrency Exchange Ripple has collaborated with numerous banking and financial institutions around the world to offer its crypto-powered financial services.

Additionally, Ripple is CEO recently stated that his firm is focusing on Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDCs) as the fiat currencies of the future. While these events were happening, the price of XRP fell went down, and the current scenario for XRP points towards tougher times ahead.
