Jed McCaleb paused his XRP sale on September 1 of last year, resuming it in early January. As of May 24, he sold 69.11 million XRP from what was left of his eight billion Ripple-linked tokens received as compensation for leaving Ripple Labs to create rival Stellar.


He took the money gradually, which was one of the terms of his leaving contract, to prevent him from selling all eight billion at once, thus saving the market from being saturated with XRP, which would push the price down.

Overall, since the start of the year, Jed has sold over half a billion XRP. Currently, 182,925,764 XRP remains on his crypto address.
