Whale Alert, a crypto tracking platform, recently unveiled data showcasing massive whale transfers revolving around the XRP token as of today, November 14. The whale transaction intrigued both crypto traders and investors as the token surprisingly sparked a frenzy in the broader crypto markets shortly afterward.
XRP, a cryptocurrency backed by Ripple Labs, is once again creating quite a buzz in the crypto realm amid the constant price fluctuations portrayed by the cryptocurrency following its fake spot ETF speculations and schedules for remedies discovery and briefing orbiting the Ripple and US SEC lawsuit.

According to the data revealed by Whale Alert, an unknown wallet, r4wf7enWPx…5XgwHh4Rzn, transferred 24 million XRP to Bitstamp, a digital asset exchange headquartered in Luxembourg City. The tokens transferred amounted to $15.61 million as of writing. The transfer of coins to CEX possibly indicates a sell-off as the amount of tokens circulated surges.
As reported by CoinGape media earlier, the same wallet has caught the eyes of many crypto enthusiasts as it has reshuffled colossal amounts of XRP to date.
Furthermore, shortly after the whale transferred coins to Bitstamp, the price jumped 15%, showcasing an unusual outcome following the deposit of tokens to exchanges.
