The movement may have been an over-the-counter (OTC) sale or a shift from one wallet to another for security purposes.

Here’s a look at the biggest Bitcoin transactions in the last 24 hours. Only one involved BTC moving from an unknown wallet to a crypto exchange. That user sent 606 BTC worth $6.2 million from an unknown wallet to the leading US crypto exchange Coinbase.

Meanwhile, Ripple appears to have sold more XRP to a third party.

The company sent 11,000,000 XRP worth $3.2 million from its over-the-counter (OTC) distribution wallet – which it uses to sell portions of its holdings – to an unknown wallet.
