Although the exact reason for the transfers is unknown, users on the XRP-based forum XRPChat have in the past speculated that Larsen is the sole owner of the wallet.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin whales appear to be awakening from a late December slumber.

In the last 24 hours, some of the biggest Bitcoin holders in existence moved 10,350 BTC worth about $74.9 million.

Three of the transfers involved crypto moving from unknown wallets to crypto exchanges, where they could potentially be sold on the open market.
