Jed McCaleb no longer sells altcoins
As the data shows, the fact that Jed McCaleb still has 5 million XRP in his cryptocurrency wallet called “tacostand” gives the impression that he pauses the process of selling them. Jed McCaleb, co-founder of Ripple Labs and former chief technology officer of Ripple, has been selling XRP aggressively for a long time. Previous data showed it would expire by July 16, but the current figure shows it still has 5.32 million XRP worth $1.79 million.
McCaleb was part of the core team as the CTO responsible for the founding of Ripple in 2013. However, he eventually broke off ties with the company in 2014 and started another blockchain startup called Stellar. Before leaving the company, Ripple rewarded him with nearly 9 billion XRP currency. Because Ripple and its executives were accused of selling unregistered securities, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) did not include him in its lawsuit against Ripple and its directors. Also, federal officials did not make any effort to stop him from selling his XRP holdings.
Meanwhile, McCaleb remains an influential figure in the cryptocurrency industry. Prior to founding Ripple, Mt. He was the founder of the Gox exchange. After leaving Ripple, he founded a rival payment network, Stellar (XLM). Jed McCaleb’s stop selling his stash of XRP could mean he’s taking a momentary hiatus for a personal reason. It could also mean that he finds it difficult to let go, seeing that selling his stash will sever his final ties to Ripple.
