XRP Price Sees Surge as Whales Move 43 Million Tokens Amidst Market Excitement

- Advertisement -
  • XRP price makes a notable leap towards $0.63, accompanied by significant whale movements transferring 43 million XRP.
  • The transfers to exchanges Bitstamp and Bitso coincide with XRP’s market price increase, leading to heightened market interest and speculation.

Whale Activity Fuels Speculation

XRP, a leading cryptocurrency, has recently garnered significant attention in the crypto community due to notable whale activity and a surge in its market price. On December 14, Whale Alert, a blockchain data provider, reported two substantial transfers involving 42.8 million XRP by an unknown wallet. These transfers were directed to two different centralized exchanges (CEXs), Bitstamp and Bitso. Specifically, 24.6 million XRP, valued at $15.28 million, was moved to Bitstamp, while 18.2 million XRP, equivalent to $11.30 million, was transferred to Bitso.

This movement of funds is particularly intriguing as both exchanges have previously announced partnerships with Ripple Labs, the firm behind XRP.

The timing of these whale transactions coincides with a notable increase in XRP’s price, sparking a wave of speculation among cryptocurrency enthusiasts. The significant movement of XRP to these exchanges raises questions about potential future market actions and the implications for XRP’s price trajectory.

XRP’s Price Movement and Market Reaction

At the time of reporting, XRP had experienced a modest jump of 2.87%, trading at $0.6245. Although the increase is slight, it signifies a potential shift in market dynamics, especially considering the token’s recent low of $0.5989. Additionally, the token’s market capitalization also saw a minor rise of 2.89%.

However, crypto analysts, including Cryptoes, have provided a more cautious perspective on XRP’s price movement. They point out that while the price has indeed increased, the market impact of this rise is relatively minor. Cryptoes highlighted that XRP‘s closing above the 21-day moving average (21MA) was less convincing, indicating that the token’s market influence remains limited.

Despite this, the recent price surge and whale activity have undoubtedly caught the attention of the crypto market, leading to increased interest in XRP‘s future performance. Whether this trend will continue and lead to more substantial gains for XRP remains a subject of keen interest and speculation within the cryptocurrency community.
