XRP whales, whose holdings range from 1 to 10 million, currently control around 6% of the total XRP supply. These whales appear to be amassing permanently accessible XRP coins, according to a recent report from Santiment, as they are now at a discount.
As a result, the number of investors with holdings of $1 million to $10 million has jumped dramatically in recent months.
This indicates the likelihood of a significant rise in the near future.
The current circulating supply of XRP is 48.3 billion XRP, according to data from CoinMarketCap, with a total supply of 100 billion XRP.
XRP has plunged nearly 80% from its November highs in amid ongoing SEC litigation. The Whales thus took advantage of this discount to strengthen their positions on XRP.
Given the current engagement around the project, even transaction volumes have increased. As the litigation continues to take new turns, investors are beginning to have confidence in the XRP token.
Ripple remains optimistic about its case against the SEC. Once the company’s litigation with the US Securities and Exchange Commission is resolved, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse has maintained that the company was planning to go public.
