On October 16, Ripple transferred an additional 75 million unlocked XRP out of the 200 million tokens that were retained following October’s escrows.
These are a portion of the monthly inflation of XRP that Ripple often sells or uses during tactical market opportunities, like the one that occurred during a Bitcoin (BTC) pump and dump.
The same day, Ripple spent 75 million XRP, and unreliable and misleading rumours regarding the SEC’s approval of BlackRock’s Bitcoin spot ETF were disseminated by cryptocurrency media sites. As a result, the price of bitcoin shot up from $27,700 to $29,900 in a matter of minutes before falling down to $28,000. This change has an impact on XRP and other cryptocurrencies as well.
Notably, on October 10, Ripple had already spent 60 million unlocked XRP. The course and structure of this current potential sell-off are very similar to the last one. After being dispersed and going via six separate accounts, these tokens were deposited to four exchanges in modest batches, suggesting that they were mostly sold out.

Tracking the 75 million XRP that have been unlocked
200 million tokens were retained in the “Ripple (1)” account, and 800 million additional escrows were released by Ripple after the 1 billion unlocked XRP on October 1. A few days later, Ripple spent 60 million tokens, leaving 140 million unlocked XRP in its wake.
Finbold tracked Ripple’s expenditures and extracted these data from XRP Scan to learn more about the short- and long-term effects of XRP’s inflation on its holders’ purchasing power. On October 17, data was gathered from the public ledger of the coin.
In this instance, on October 16, 75 of the 140 million XRP that were left were transmitted from “Ripple (1)” to the unidentified address “rJqiM…La8nE.” Seventy million were sent to “rP4X2…sKxv3” five hours later.
Interestingly, 1.05 million XRP were also transmitted to “rKL6i…S5Xwa” from the original 75 million (kept by “rJqiM…La8nE”), and they were promptly routed to a Bitstamp known account, most likely to be traded on the spot market.
Returning to the remaining path, out of the 70 million tokens received, “rP4X2…sKxv3” only sent 26 million unlocked XRP to “rhWt2…E32hk.” which transferred 32.205 million to “rJgpQ…7hCvf” right away. Additionally, 63.205 million was paid to “r4wf7…h4Rzn” right away. A portion of the prior amount on these accounts was liquidated.
From this point on, the final address dispersed the entire amount to four known wallet addresses of the centralised exchange in addition to the unknown address “rsdkG…apapb”, which is nearly identical to what transpired last week and similar to what happened in September.
