Amidst these transactions, ripple was not just on the sending end but also the receiving end. Another tweet by XRPL shares that Binance had sent 13.1 million XRP tokens in Ripple’s account. These tokens are worth $2,949,975 in fiat. As per the conversations and opinions from social media, Binance often sends back redundant XRP to Ripple.
