Nearly 190 million XRP have been shifted as XRP whales continue to accumulate large sums of crypto and expect price surge
Over the past 24 hours, Whale Alert crypto tracking service has spotted three major crypto transactions, carrying a total of 185 million XRP. Half of this amount was shoveled in a single transfer.
In the meantime, the Ripple-affiliated token has been doing well and rising ahead of a possible Ripple win over the SEC in court.

Whales have shifted three lumps of crypto, carrying 95,000,000, 60,000,000 and 30,000,000 XRP tokens. These transactions were made by holders between accounts on Bittrex, Bitso, BitGo and Bitstamp.
Ninety-five million XRP was the only transfer here made by a crypto exchange internally – South Korea’s Bithumb. The overall equivalent of the transferred XRP here is $95.4 million.

Sharks and whales accumulating since late 2020
As reported by Santiment data aggregator earlier today, active XRP investors, who hold from 1 million to 10 million XRP, have been accumulating massive amounts of XRP since the end of 2020. Until November 2020, they had been selling heavily but then made a pivot.
Now, as the optimism regarding a possible victory of Ripple against the SEC in the legal field is rising, XRP/BTC has surged to a year-high at the 0.000025 price level.
