XRP Whales Transfers 67 Million XRP Amid Ongoing Legal Suits 

A lot of activity has been seen among XRP whales, with a significant movement of almost 67 million coins, during the continuing legal struggle between the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Ripple Labs Inc. The cryptocurrency community is still surprised by this event, considering the recent market volatility that resulted in a significant decline in bitcoin values.

The said event was caused by the latest 30% tax policy on cryptocurrencies initiated by the United States Presidency. There have also been noticeable swings in the XRP derivatives market. Data from Coinglass indicates that open interest has significantly decreased, and a 9.93% fall has been noted.

 On the other hand, trade volume has experienced a spectacular 115.13% increase, resulting in a dramatic jump. These changes, according to market speculators have been linked to the derivatives market, which has also reflected the increased interest and activity surrounding XRP following the most recent legal developments.

Analysis Links Native Trends to Investors Short-term Trading Strategy

Analysis of CoinGape says that these trades might be a sign of major investors strategically positioning themselves in anticipation of positive results in the SEC vs. Ripple dispute. Some speculate that it might be an attempt to profit from short-term trading chances during the volatility or a reaction to market emotions. 

A cloud of doubt has been around XRP due to the continuing legal dispute between the SEC and Ripple Labs Inc. The SEC claims that by selling XRP tokens, Ripple engaged in an unregistered securities offering.

Investors and other cryptocurrency community stakeholders are anxiously awaiting the lawsuit’s verdict since it may greatly impact XRP’s regulatory status and future market performance. XRP’s negative trend today has affected the market, spiking speculation among the XRP community and compelling them to doubt the market’s potential to reach $1 anytime soon.

Investors are showing some emotion because the token rose significantly in the last few days before it dropped to $0.63 earlier today, forcing major investors to reconsider their investment strategy. However, the token’s derivative data has shown a mixed sentiment in the market.

Before now, XRP had a weekly rise of 18.30% and a monthly uptrend of 31.29%. The token continued with the same trend until it reached $0.7 before the sudden change in market movement.

Bitso and Bitstamp Records Highest Dump, XRP’s Price Drops Further 

However, the dump on CEXs: Bitso and Bitstamp exchange were initiated by the wallet address “….Rzn.” The same wallet address had recorded similar transactions in previous times. Another dump set recorded on the Bitstamp exchange in recent times cumulated to 22.8 million XRP, valued at $15.21 million. The on Bitso amounted to 27.6 million XRP, valued at $18.6 million.
