It is not excluded that XRP holders are transferring tokens to the exchange for sale. And if this 200 million XRP is sold, there is a high chance that the price of XRP will drop significantly. At press time, XRP price is trading at $0.67, recording a 7% gain over the past seven days.

This is where the coin has managed to recover after the drop to the $0,5223 level on June 22. On June 29, the coin reached out to the $0.7 price mark but then went down.

The major price drop that XRP has suffered since the beginning of 2021 is due to a lawsuit filed by the US securities and exchange authorities against Ripple Labs and two of its leaders – Christopher Larsen (co-founder and former CEO) and Brandley Garlinghouse, current chief executive officer.

A few days ago, Ripple unleashed another billion XRP tokens from escrow. These massive XRP amounts have been programmed to take place on the first day of each month for a few years in a row releases already. The blockchain giant continues to do that even while it is fighting a legal battle against the US security regulatory agency – the SEC.

This is a tradition it has been following since 2018 to support the coin’s liquidity and cover the company’s operational expenses.
