Whale Alert, a blockchain analytics account has issued a new report in which it has provided its analysis of one of the most popular XRP whales out there. According to the report of Whale Alert, Jed McCaleb, who is considered as one of the richest personalities in crypto, has sold more than $400 million worth of XRP during the entire year of 2020.

During these five years, McCaleb sold an amount of nearly one billion. As per Whale Alert’s data, the accumulative value of McCaleb’s entire stash of XRP is approximately $1.2 billion.

Jed McCaleb was granted with an amount of 9.5 billion XRP as co-founders reward back in the year 2014 when he left the company.

Meanwhile, the native digital currency of Ripple is continuously trading in the bearish zone and is showing no signs of recovery at the moment. At the time of writing, the price value of XRP is standing at around $0.22 with a change rate of -2.26 percent in the last 24 hours.
