Bitcoin Price Surges As Greed Dominates Crypto Market The recent struggles of XRP, reflected in its monthly losses and declining network fundamentals, have created an air of uncertainty around the coin. Santiment data analyzed by NewsBTC indicates a steady drop in daily active addresses and a decrease in the rate of new address creation over the past month. Additionally, XRP’s supply in profit has seen a sharp decline since the beginning of the year.

As the crypto market evolves, these factors contribute to the dynamic landscape and impact the sentiments of investors and market participants. 🚨 🚨 🚨 🚨 🚨 200,000,000 #XRP (105,914,024 USD) transferred from #Binance to unknown wallethttps://t.co/H8wJxoRtvA — Whale Alert (@whale_alert) February 13, 2024 One platform that tracks high-value transactions, Whale Alert, made the flow of XRP tokens visible. At around 6:40 am UTC, Binance started three different transactions totaling 64.41 million XRPs. Trade observers took notice of the subsequent large transfer of 200 million XRP to a “unknown wallet.” The 200 million token transfer represents almost $105 million at the current XRP selling price, highlighting the importance of this operation. After more research, we discovered that the beneficiary address of the $200 million transfer quickly transferred $4.28 million in XRP to a different address. XRP market cap currently at $29 billion.

But the cryptocurrency community has been quick to conjecture, with conversations centered on the potential for whale buildup. The transfers’ timing, which coincided with an increase in XRP’s price, has fueled conjecture even more. With a respectable rise in value today, XRP, which had been in a protracted downturn, saw some hope. Notably, it traded at $0.53, increasing in value over the previous day and week to 0.6% and 4.1%, respectively, according to Coingecko data. It’s possible that the enthusiasm surrounding XRP’s positive turnaround spurred major market participants—also known as “whales”—to take big action.
