McCaleb’s XRP dumping ends, official confirmation from Ripple

Jed McCaleb’s notorious “Tacostand” wallet is officially empty, and the co-founder has seemingly transferred his entire stash of the altcoins out of the address. The wallet holds $17 in XRP, and after it was emptied, Ripple CEO Garlinghouse officially confirmed the end of the altcoin’s dump in a tweet. 

Garlinghouse asked his followers,

Tacos, anyone? JK, the stand is closed.

After McCaleb left payment giant Ripple, the co-founder was offered 9 billion XRP tokens and was allowed to sell or transfer the funds under specific withdrawal conditions. Over the years, McCaleb dumped his XRP reserves across exchange wallets, and there was a consistent outflow of Ripple from his “Tacostand” wallet. 

McCaleb is widely known for co-founding Ripple and the project Stellar that he created in 2014. The end of his XRP dumping spree is a watershed moment for XRPArmy as it marks closure and an affirmation of less selling pressure from McCaleb’s dumping. 

Interestingly, most of McCaleb’s sales came after the US Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) started a legal battle with payment giant Ripple, accusing the firm of allegedly illicit XRP sales. 

When McCaleb exited Ripple, he wanted to get rid of his XRP “as quickly as possible.” After reaching an agreement with the payment giant, he focused his liquidation efforts on emptying his wallet based on the daily trading volume and the timeline he agreed upon.
