About this transaction XRPL Monitor does not show the name of the sender and the recipient, as for example in the case of Coincheck, but the most likely explanation is that some other big exchange with the address still unknown is accumulating a large amount of coins. Normal administration or maybe it could be the case to stock XRP waiting for the spike? Those who during the market crash had the courage and foresight to buy other coins, could soon find themselves with a much higher value than a few days ago.
