Ripple, the San Francisco-based blockchain company, has revealed its plan to distribute a substantial number of XRP tokens from its controlled wallets. According to information obtained from XRPScan, the company will introduce an additional 200 million XRP into circulation. This move is equivalent to approximately $102 million worth of tokens and represents a 0.37% increase in the token’s supply. The distribution of these tokens is expected to have a significant impact on the market dynamics of XRP.
Ripple’s decision to distribute these tokens comes as its spending patterns have been influenced by recent events, such as FTX’s assets liquidations. Market observers are closely watching these patterns as they could provide insights into the future trends and value of the digital asset.
In addition to the distribution of tokens, Ripple has also highlighted transactions that have occurred after the finality of escrows. These transactions involve four different centralized exchange known addresses. It has been announced that these tokens will be released on a monthly basis until February 29, 2024. This gradual release of tokens could potentially result in a yearly inflation of 4.44% in the value of XRP.
The strategic management of Ripple’s digital assets, specifically the unlocking and re-locking of a significant number of XRP tokens, is expected to have a considerable impact on the price of the cryptocurrency. As these tokens are gradually introduced into circulation over the coming months, market participants will be closely monitoring the potential effects on market dynamics and inflation rates.
