Ripple Gears Up for Stablecoin Launch with New Leadership and Key Acquisition

Ripple has offloaded 150 million XRP, valued at over $78 million, after reserving 400 million tokens during this month’s escrow unlock. This transaction has prompted speculation about Ripple’s strategic intentions, with concerns that the payment firm might be planning to dump XRP.

In a recent post on X, market tracking platform Whale Alert highlighted Ripple’s latest significant XRP movement. At 02:08 UTC today, the American payment firm transferred 150,000,000 XRP to an anonymous wallet. This transaction has fueled concerns among market observers about Ripple potentially dumping XRP.

Ripple’s Strategic Moves

Earlier, The Crypto Basic reported that Ripple might liquidate up to 400 million XRP this month. On June 1, Ripple moved 200 million XRP, valued at around $104.1 million, from the “Ripple 24” wallet to its primary operating wallet, “Ripple 1,” following the 1 billion XRP unlock from escrow. On the same day, Ripple transferred another 200 million XRP from the dormant “Ripple 35” wallet to “Ripple 1.”

Consequently, Ripple’s spendable wallet accumulated 400 million XRP. Now, the payment firm has already offloaded 150 million XRP from the stockpiled fund to an external destination, suggesting a cash-out transaction. The crypto community could witness more outbound XRP transactions from Ripple to unidentified addresses in the coming days, with 250 million XRP remaining in the Ripple 1 spendable wallet.

Meanwhile, Ripple is not the only entity orchestrating significant XRP movements recently.
