XRP Whales Make Big Moves Amid Market Volatility

2 Mins read

XRP Whales are causing a stir in the XRP community as holders speculate on what could be the reason for their latest moves. On-chain data shows that these whales have moved a significant portion of their holdings in the last 24 hours.  

Over 63 Million XRP Tokens Moved

Data from Whale Alert shows that two significant XRP transactions have occurred recently. The first was a transfer of 26,400,000 XRP from an unknown wallet to the crypto exchange Bitstamp. The second was a transfer of 36,964,930 XRP from the crypto exchange MEXC to an unknown wallet. 

It is normal for transactions of such magnitude to raise eyebrows, considering the impact that they could have on XRP’s price. Specifically, such transfers to centralized exchanges usually suggest that the whale could be looking to dump the crypto tokens on retail investors. If so, that could potentially lead to a significant decline in the altcoin’s price. 

In this case, it is, however, worth mentioning that the first transaction in question happens to be a recurrent one, as huge sums of XRP tokens have been reported on a couple of occasions to have moved from that same wallet to Bitstamp. 

These transactions are believed to occur as a result of Ripple’s strategic partnership with the crypto exchange, with the latter using the crypto firm’s payment services. Meanwhile, the nature of the second transaction also allays fears of an impending sell-off. This is because the tokens were sent from the MEXC to an unknown wallet and not the other way around. 

As such, it is more likely to be a whale who is moving their XRP holdings to cold storage. This is more plausible, considering that these whales may soon see huge gains based on recent price predictions.

Why Price Could Rise To Over A Dollar Soon

Crypto analyst Ali Martinez recently offered a bullish narrative for the token’s price. He noted how the governing pattern behind the crypto token’s price action since June 2022 looks to be an ascending parallel channel. If this pattern continues, XRP could rise to between $0.80 and $1.10, the analyst hinted. Those price levels are the channel’s middle and upper boundaries. 

In a subsequent X post, the analyst also suggested that now may be a good time for those looking to get in on the token. He stated that the weighted market sentiment for XRP had dipped to its lowest negative point since mid-May 2023. Moments like this can “present unique opportunities in the market,” Martinez claims.  

At the time of writing, XRP is trading at around $0.56, down over 1% in the last 24 hours, according to data from CoinMarketCap.
