Crypto Whales Moving Millions In XRP As Google Searches For Crypto Asset Explode To All-Time High

Large investors are transferring XRP worth tens of millions of dollars as online search interest in the crypto asset explodes.

In a series of tweets, the blockchain monitoring tool known as Whale Alert reports that high-stakes crypto whales moved a total of 119,723,157 XRP worth over $47.8 million in seven transactions.

One of the biggest transactions witnessed the shifting of 27,653,765 worth $10.6 million from crypto exchange Kraken to a wallet of unknown origins. In another transfer, a whale moved 27,143,113 XRP worth $11.8 million.
Three transactions relocated XRP from a wallet of unknown origins to a crypto exchange while two other transfers moved XRP from crypto exchanges to unknown wallets.

Here’s the summary of large XRP transactions in the last day.

The XRP whale activity comes as interest in the fourth-largest crypto asset explodes to a fresh all-time high. Google Trends shows surging interest in the search term “XRP” over the last two weeks from a low of 26 to an estimated 100, eclipsing the previous high of 76 recorded in December 2017.

Hotspots around the world with the most XRP searches are Slovenia, Ireland, Australia, the Netherlands, and Singapore.
