Ripple Sells $32.55 Million in XRP in Q2
At the time XRP was attempting to claim the $0.30 resistance level, the team at Ripple released the Q2 XRP market report. One key takeaway from the document is the announcement by Ripple, of the sale of $32.55 Million in XRP during the second quarter of 2020.
The sale of the aforementioned XRP was Over-The-Counter and thus did not affect the crypto market value of the digital asset. The team at Ripple further elaborated on this fact as follows.
In Q2 2020, total XRP sales were $32.55 million (USD) vs. $1.75 million the previous quarter. Ripple continued the pause of programmatic sales, focusing solely on its over-the-counter (OTC) sales as part of providing increased XRP liquidity to RippleNet’s On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) customers. This added liquidity is vital as ODL continues to evolve and expand into new corridors.
