XRP News: After reaching a high of $0.41 over the weekend, the price of Ripple’s native token fell briefly on Monday. One of the reasons could be the recent Whale activity into the token that has seen a rise this year. Recently, Whale Alert reported that several addresses moved 508,500,000 XRP tokens worth more than $200 million.
