The co-founder and former CTO of Ripple, Jed McCaleb has finally emptied his XRP wallets after a continuous 8-year dump, with just $16 left in his “tacostand” wallet as of writing this.
In the information revealed by the blockchain explorer, XRP scan, on July 17 at 6:31 am (UTC), McCaleb carried out his last XRP marathon dump with the remaining 1.1 trillion XRP ( over $390,000 in current XRP market price).
After some hours from the final dump, the account listed an “ACCOUNT DELETE” transaction, depicting that the account will no longer exist on the XRP ledger (XRPL).
McCaleb in 2014 left Ripple Labs to found Stellar (XLM) after which he was compensated with 9 billion XRP by Ripple Labs.
Since he left Ripple, he has been continuously releasing his XRP, although at a controlled rate due to the agreement he had with Ripple Labs not to sell off his XRP tokens immediately to prevent Ripple’s token volatility.
Jed McCaleb’s total amount of XRP tokens dumped in the last eight years equals 18.6% of the total XRP market supply.
Currently, Ripple is a little up by 2% in the last 24 hours, sitting at $0.3652, Ripple since its 2018 all-time high of $3.40 is yet to cling up to that price.
