As a rule, Ripple opens a deposit on the first day of each month to issue 1 billion XRP in two sums of 500 million each. The XRP that Ripple takes from its escrow wallet is used for investment and charitable purposes and to increase XRP’s overall liquidity. After that, about 80% of this amount is returned to the deposit. Therefore, the transfer of 100 million today does not seem to be in the plan.
The company started putting most of the money back into deposit not too long ago.
Besides, according to XRPL Monitor, they have also recently detected multiple transfers with a total value of 92.6 million XRP – amounting to $ 18,769,363. Millions of these XRP have been deposited by major Korean exchange Bithumb, BitGo depository service, and Ripple Github Giveaway wallet.

Ripple has continued to add more customers despite the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. About 13 customers out of every 13 will confirm their use of XRP in international money transfer services.
