The XRP Markets Report shows RippleNet’s On-Demand Liquidity network experienced 11x growth compared to 2019, while XRP sales surged in Q2.
On August 3, it has been reported that sales of the firm’s XRP token were 18.6 times higher in Q2 2020 compared to Q1. The crypto firm stated XRP sales were $32.55 million from April to June this year, up from $1.75 million in the first quarter.
However, the company has been criticized for propping up its balance sheet with XRP sales.
Ripple said that the sales were due to the firm prioritizing over-the-counter (OTC) sales over programmatic ones. This is reportedly part of the effort to provide increased XRP liquidity to RippleNet’s On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) customers.
It has been analyzed that RippleNet had 11 times year-over-year growth in ODL transaction volume from the middle of 2019 to 2020.
As the price of XRP rallied 40% in the last week, Ripple reports that sales of the token increased more than $30M in Q2 2020 https://t.co/yxqpMqRb9t — Cointelegraph (@Cointelegraph) August 4, 2020
As per the report, the price of the XRP token has rallied 40% in the past seven days and nearly 8.5% in the last 24 hours. Many predict that the token may even surge to $0.30 if Bitcoin (BTC), currently at $11,346, remains stable.
Thus, the price rise has attracted investors. At least, 30 new XRP whales now hold between $240,000 and $2.4 million, bringing the number of accounts holding more than one million of the tokens to 3.7%.
