Ripple Monthly Token Unlock Program

NCashOfficial - Daily Crypto News

The 1B XRP unlocked from escrow is part of a routine token unlock program Ripple performs on the first day of each month. The leading blockchain company introduced the initiative in December 2017 as part of efforts to provide stability in the XRP markets.

At the time, Ripple locked 55 billion XRP in an escrow system programmed on the XRP Ledger (XRPL). Ripple programmed the system to release at least 1B XRP coins monthly over a period of 55 months.

To further protect the price of XRP from high volatility, Ripple took a more conservative approach by locking a huge chunk of the 1B XRP it releases monthly. In most cases, the company usually returns up to 800M XRP from the 1B coins released monthly.

At the time of writing, Ripple has yet to relock any portion of the recently released 1B XRP.
