It’s estimated that Jed McCaleb still owns billions of XRP cryptocurrency, which he might all sell-off this year. Due to the role he played in building Ripple, Jed McCaleb was entitled to compensation with XRP after he left the development team in 2013 because of in-house disagreements. The funds are sent in batches to prevent McCaleb from dumping the whole coins, which might affect the market performance of XRP.
About 28 million XRP dumped
Following the announcement of the US charges against Ripple, McCaleb was spotted selling about 28.6 million XRP (about $13 million in today’s price) in January, as Cryptopolitan reported. For some time, XRP has been trading within the $0.4 price range, as the blockchain company continues to battle with the SEC over the alleged sale of XRP as an unregistered security.
