Ripple shifts 100 million XRP
According to the tweet posted by Whale Alert crypto tracking platform, Ripple fintech giant has recently shoveled a staggering 100 million XRP to its RL18-VN address in order to move it in smaller transfers to the largest crypto trading venue in China, Huobi, later on a daily basis.
One hundred million XRP equals approximately $90,518,490 at the present exchange rate of the sixth-largest cryptocurrency.
Ripple sends 1.5 million XRP to Huobi
Huobi receives XRP from Ripple to the r37SFX6FZsxiJGxLrWCdCHm2Cub4jKcxhz wallet. Besides, today, Sept. 29, a transfer of 1,542,780 XRP has been already made from the San Francisco-based distributed ledger tech provider.
According to Bithomp, Ripple's RL18-VN has been sending these 1,542,780 XRP to Huobi since Sept. 27. The daily amount of XRP sent to this crypto exchange changes from one week to another.
Before Sept. 27, the amount of daily XRP lumps sent to Huobi was 3,099,200. Earlier this year, U.Today reported several times that Ripple had been sending large amounts of XRP to Huobi, but the DLT tech provider never clarified the goal of these transfers.
Huobi is banning all users from mainland China
As covered by U.Today earlier, the world's two largest crypto exchanges—Binance and Huobi—as well as other exchanges in China are facing harsh regulatory pressure from the country's authorities.
Huobi first suspended the registration of new users from mainland China and now it plans to ban them gradually but completely. Binance, at the moment, is prohibiting new users from mainland China to open accounts with it and is about to stop offering any services to its customers in Singapore over regulatory pressure.
Reasons for the current China crypto ban suggested by Elon Musk and Kiyosaki
During the recent Code conference on Sept. 28, eccentric centibillionaire Elon Musk suggested that China's recent crypto ban, the harshest to date, is being imposed since Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are threatening the power of China's Communist Party.
Well-known investor and author of "Rich Dad, Poor Dad," Robert Kiyosaki, believes that China is posing yet another ban on crypto as it is about to launch its own CBDC, also known as DCEP or digital yuan.Source
