Crypto Trader Moves Nearly 100 Million XRP, Triggers ‘Market Maker’ Rumors

Although the receiving address was not identified by Whale Alert, a crypto analyst known as Light Crypto tells his 19,000 followers the XRP in question may have been transferred to a known market maker.

That’s because the wallet that received the XRP has sent dozens of transactions to an address created and owned by a Singapore-based crypto trading platform called Triple Dice Exchange, according to Bithomp.

Although a number of giant Bitcoin whales surfaced on Wednesday, large holders of XRP have been relatively quiet.

A recent analysis of crypto sentiment from DailyFX IG found more than 96% of XRP traders are long – a higher number than Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin.
