Over 204 million XRP tokens have been transferred by Ripple and several large crypto exchanges in big lumps as XRP lost almost 12%

It has been shared that, in the past 22 hours, six large XRP stashes have been moved by Ripple, Binance, Huobi and other big crypto exchanges. The tweets were posted by the popular DLT service that tracks large crypto transfers, Whale Alert, with details from the Bithomp site that provides analytics on XRP transactions and wallets.

In the meantime, the seventh-largest crypto continues to decline, dropping to the $1.09 level.

204.7 million XRP on the move

According to Whale Alert, the fiat equivalent of $225,171,272 has been transferred in XRP by Ripple, Binance, Bitstamp, Huobi, Bitfinex, Upbit, Bittrex and Bybit. The first transaction was made more than 20 hours ago, and the most recent one was conducted two hours ago.

Ripple transferred 40 million XRP to its RL18-VN address, which is often used to move crypto outside the company—to its partners, crypto exchanges and financial institutions. This wallet is also used for selling XRP to obtain fiat for covering Ripple’s operational expenses.

The largest single lump was moved by the Bybit exchange internally. The platform shoveled a massive 83,220,460 XRP, equaling $94,226,820.

XRP dips further after starting to recover

Earlier today, it was reported that XRP demonstrated a 12% drop after the Coinbase exchange rejected rumors about the resumption of XRP trading. Prior to that, on-chain analytics vendor Santiment tweeted that a rise in XRP address activity started pushing the coin up 10%.

However, the coin still went down from $1.24 to $1.09, losing almost 12% on that drop. After that, the coin was trading sideways and was making attempts to recover.

At the moment, XRP holds seventh place on the CoinMarketCap scale of top coins by market capitalization after it was recently surpassed by Solana, which was reaching one all-time high after another and is trading at $182 at press time.

Coinbase suspended trading of XRP pairs in January this year after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission brought up a legal suit against Ripple Labs and two of its highest-ranking executives, Chris Larsen (co-founder and former CEO) and Brad Garlinghouse (present CEO), accusing them of selling XRP to investors as an unregistered security.

Crypto is becoming mainstream in Croatia because of Konzum

Konzum, the largest supermarket chain in Croatia, which was founded all the way back in 1957, has begun accepting cryptocurrencies in its online store, according to a Dec. 1 report by Zagreb-based newspaper 24sata.

Shoppers are now able to buy groceries, hygiene items, household supplies and other items with the aforementioned cryptocurrencies.

Konzum partnered with Croatian fintech company Electrocoin to use its PayCek system to facilitate crypto payments.

They spent several weeks testing the service before the official rollout in the run-up to Christmas.

On December 01, 2021, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), Chairwoman of the House Committee on Financial Services, announced witnesses for the December 8 full Committee hybrid hearing entitled, “Digital Assets and the Future of Finance: Understanding the Challenges and Benefits of Financial Innovation in the United States.

Reportedly, “Since becoming Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, Congresswoman Waters has transformed the Committee to focus its agenda on fairness, protecting consumers and investors, which includes accountability of large financial institutions and emerging tech products and services. She has made it a practice to call Committee hearings with CEOs of major financial institutions and companies to hold them accountable.”

The Committee has been a leader in highlighting issues related to cryptocurrency and financial technology:

Community Reaction:  Where is Brad Garlinghouse Ripple (XRP) this is disappointing that the most compliant abs transparent US based Cryptocurrency is not represented.

No Ripple? What a joke. Don’t think they’ll be involved in innovating the future of finance? Sad.

“Due to COVID-19, all markups and hearings will be in hybrid format. Members and witnesses may participate remotely via Cisco WebEx or participate in-person in room 2128 Rayburn House Office Building.”

Covid is not the reason why Brad was not called.

Why is Ripple not invited?  Maybe they were invited but due to ongoing legal case they refused or couldn’t participate who knows?

I can just see certain CEOs are trying to bash other crypto instead of standing together.  Crypto Committee hearing without the multibillion Dollar Blockchain Decacorn and Global Player Ripple (XRP)

The Ones that William be Testifying William be the ones who paid the entry fee.

Ok. So, this is basically a meeting to learn more about stable coins. *Noted.*

So many XRP fans roughed up realizing Stellar is a better protocol. Who will be translating to these dinosaurs.

Why not invite Ripple? Politicians ruin everything they are involved with.

Other than Sam there is no single big player in this list. Seriously, term limits can’t be here any sooner.

A recovery rally for Ripple [XRP] may be right around the corner

Published

on

XRP just broke away from a month-long downtrend. After dropping below the psychological level of $1-level. However, following the latest rise in the market, XRP climbed surged back to the press time price of $1.09.

Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse had revealed making tremendous headway in its legal feud with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission last week. In a recent interview with CNBC, 

“We’re seeing pretty good progress despite a slow-moving judicial process. Clearly, we’re seeing good questions asked by the judge. And I think the judge realizes this is not just about Ripple, this will have broader implications”

Since its all-time high of $3, XRP has undergone a dramatic decline. But with the Ripple vs SEC heading in a positive direction, things look good for XRP. After a rather dull November, the coming days may be kind to the asset’s price trend. 

XRP’s bearish narrative may flip

A recovery rally for Ripple [XRP] may be right around the corner

XRP has been on a constant decline since the beginning of the year as it fluctuated within the trendlines of a descending parallel channel. As the pattern completed, a much-needed bullish breakout transpired. Subsequently, the asset posted five straight green candles after breaking away. The increase in volatility in the market may support the upward price action.   

Besides, the price candles surged past the 200 daily moving average [Yellow] this week which was another positive development. Even as the 50 DMA [Pink] and the 100 DMA [Blue] continued to hover above the candlesticks, it has so far dodged a potential bearish crossover.

Bulls Defend Despite Being Under Pressure

A recovery rally for Ripple [XRP] may be right around the corner

The technicals look promising even if they aren’t strongly bullish. The switch to the green closing bar of Awesome Oscillator [AO] depicted a bullish momentum. The Chaikin Money Flow [CMF] appeared to be heading above the zero line indicating a steady increase in capital inflow in the coin market. The daily Relative Strength Index [RSI] was also climbing towards the 50-median line in tandem with the rising price as it demonstrated a weakening sell pressure. 

The profit-taking phase may come to an end if the crypto-asset maintains the momentum and breaches the moving averages of 50 and 100 near $1.10. The buyers stepping in may further catalyze the price. The resistance levels to watch out for are $1.15, $1.28, and $1.39. The support levels, on the other hand, are found to be $0.93, $0.87, and $0.715 respectively.
