Ripple Q2 2020 Report: XRP Sales Increased 19-Fold

Sales of Ripple’s XRP token in Q2 surged after hitting a low in the first quarter, while the firm’s On-Demand Liquidity network remains popular.

According to Ripple’s quarterly report released on August 3, sales of the firm’s XRP token were 18.6 times higher in Q2 2020 compared to Q1. The crypto firm stated XRP sales were $32.55 million from April to June this year, up from $1.75 million in the first quarter. The company has been criticized for propping up its balance sheet with XRP sales.

Ripple said the sales were due to the firm prioritizing over-the-counter (OTC) sales over programmatic ones. This is reportedly part of the effort to provide increased XRP liquidity to RippleNet’s On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) customers. RippleNet had 11 times year-over-year growth in ODL transaction volume from the middle of 2019 to 2020.

That the price of the XRP token has rallied 40% in the past seven days and nearly 8.5% in the last 24 hours. Many predict that the token may even surge to $0.30 if Bitcoin (BTC) — currently at $11,346 — remains stable.

The price rise has attracted investors. At least 30 new XRP whales now hold between $240,000 and $2.4 million, bringing the number of accounts holding more than one million of the tokens to 3.7%.
