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.
