Whale Alert’s second tweet shows an anonymous address sending 20,000,000 XRP worth $14,297,008 to a cryptocurrency exchange, Philippines-based Coins.ph. This is one of the crypto exchanges that act as a partner of Ripple ODL.
The data shared by Bithomp shows that the transaction was initiated from the Ripple wallet RL18-VN. It is commonly used to transfer ODL and move the tokens associated with Ripple outside to sell them on exchanges or send them to corporate clients or crypto custodians — such as BitGo.
