As per reports Ripple also has transferred money from one of its wallets to another which the company used to send XRP to exchanges for sale or to help the coin’s liquidity.
Ripple Labs has recently been moving huge quantities of XRP on a daily basis in order to keep sending XRP to its partners. The business has collaborated with 15 more banks after the SEC took legal action against it.

Ripple V/S SEC
In a new twist in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) battle with Ripple Laboratories, US judge Sarah Netburn has ordered all parties to hold a “telephonic discovery conference on Tuesday, April 6, 2021,” according to the SEC. The judge’s order orders the parties to address Ripple’s lawyers’ motion to compel.
The judge’s order brought Ripple supporters on Twitter and eventually praised the judge’s ruling which they believe will help the fintech firm’s case. For instance, a Twitter user known as Kingslayer wrote,
This would be a huge step, as finally the internal comms of the SEC News will be revealed. April 6 will be a day to look forward to. A lot of clarity might come out.
As of now the world’s seventh-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, which is presently being investigated by the SEC, is trading back below the support level of $0.55 as it edges towards a larger correction to $0.40.
