Reportedly, Ripple’s Co-Founder sold his holdings at an average price rate of $0.34 per token. Moreover, this amount is only 27 percent of the total XRP stash of McCaleb. This stash is stored in a settlement account with Ripple Labs.

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.
