The total fiat equivalent of the transferred crypto amount is $29,300,201. Whale Alert did not tag the sender’s address by any network or user and claimed that the sender was anonymous. Some on Twitter assumed it was a whale sending its XRP to sell on the platform operated by Changpeng Zhao (CZ).

However, a detailed look at the data provided by the XRP trading platform Bithomp shows that the transfer was made between the two wallets of the Binance exchange. Simultaneously with the execution of the XRP transaction to Binance, 50 million XRP was left from Binance and shifted to a wallet that Whale Alert again marked as anonymous. Still, the details provided by the aforementioned XRP data service show that $29.3 million in XRP equivalent was sent to one of the wallets belonging to the Huobi exchange.
