Ripple and Bitso help shift $34.3 million worth of XRP

Ripple fintech giant wired 10 million XRP to Mexico-based Bitso exchange, the largest trading platform in Latin America and Ripple's partner in its ODL cash transferring business via XRP.

In October 2019, Ripple invested an undisclosed amount of funds into Bitso, and senior vice president of product, Asheesh Birla, joined the board of directors at Bitso.

Since then, Bitso has been spreading its cash transferring business around Mexico and other Latin American countries.


Binance moves 33.7 million XRP to Houbi

The world's largest trading platform, Binance, has transferred a total of 33.7 million XRP to the Houbi exchange in four transactions, each carrying 8.5 million coins on average.

In the comments, Twitter users assume that these may be whales purchasing XRP on Binance and moving it into cold storage vaults on Houbi.

Bybit has also transferred 15 million XRP to a Houbi wallet.
