Jed McCaleb and Ripple Labs

Jed McCaleb started working on Ripple back in 2011 and was part of the founders when it launched in 2013. But later abandoned the project in 2014 to work on Stellar Lumens (XLM).

When departing the company, he was awarded about 9 billion XRP tokens for developing and co-founding OpenCoin, which was later rebranded as Ripple.

McCaleb received the whopping funds on a fixed schedule and made it clear that he plans on selling all the funds. Since then, he has been selling the tokens from time to time. And this year alone as aforementioned, he has sold a total of 499.5 million XRP tokens worth $192.4 million at current prices.

If he maintains the selling amount and rate, the Ripple co-founder is expected to run out of XRP in his “~tacostand” wallet on the 14th of July or the 8th of August 2022.

At the time of press, XRP is trading at $0.385, with a 0.10% price downtrend in the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.
