Chris Larsen reveals where he has Just moved $ 116 mln worth of XRP
After more people started speculating about the new destination of that XRP number, Larsen revealed he moved his XRP wallet to the New York Digital Investments Group (NYDIG).
As some of you may have noticed, I moved an $XRP wallet to NYDIG. I’ve known the founders for a while, and am impressed by their security and top notch institutional standards — this is truly custody 2.0. Check them out at https://t.co/lbr8bG1kEe

Manhattan-based NYDIG is offering discerning investors a diverse suite of crypto services, including asset management. NYDIG acquired the BitLicense in 2018 – a year after its creator Benjamin Lawsky joined the group. Over the past three months, its three Bitcoin funds have raised $ 335 million.
“I’m known the founders for a while, and I am impressed by their security and top-notch institutional standards – this is truly custody 2.0. Check them out at.”
During the peak of the crypto bubble in early 2018, Larsen is holding 5.19 billion XRP, which he was gifted with as one of the Ripple Labs co-founders. When XRP achieved an ATH of $ 3.84, his net worth rose to almost $ 60 billion.
Although XRP is down 92% from its peak, the 59-year-old businessman is still the richest person in the crypto industry. Furthermore, he is also the only known crypto billionaire on the Forbes 400 list.
Meanwhile, Jed McCaleb, another Ripple co-founder, still has more than 4 billion XRP to sell on the open market.
