In his latest post on X, Richard Teng, the present Binance CEO, said that his company has managed to cease XRP worth $4.2 million.

XRP increased to $1 after the court decision demonstrated XRP holders’ faith in the project’s future and regulatory compliance. The increase in whale accumulation adds credence to the notion held by institutional investors that XRP’s legal ambiguities are progressively being resolved.
The market dynamics are expected to continue turbulence as XRP seeks clarity in its legal position and navigates the regulatory framework. The Binance boss also assured that the team at Binance will try their best to recover the rest of the funds using every medium necessary.
Teng also added that they are currently tracking the funds in the hacker’s external address in case they move to deposit the stolen assets into Binance. These hackers were said to have breached Larsen’s account and moved his assets to HitBTC, MEXC, Kraken, Gate, and OKX exchanges.
