Planned Sell-Off Causes XRP Prices To Crash By 40% On Beaxy Exchange


The crypto market is prone to manipulation. If you don’t believe it, you can just check the many examples that can be easily found. The latest one was a coordinated sell-off of Ripple’s XRP tokens on the Beaxy Exchange.

This new crypto exchange platform was just launched, but it had to suspend its activities for being targeted by manipulators. According to the reports, soon after the launch, the exchange suffering a massive XRP dump with a lot of people selling the asset at the same time.

In order to deal with this obvious market manipulation situation, Beaxy had no choice but to shut down the platform for a few days. It has been a rough start for the exchange, which was launched back in June. So far, technical issues, manipulation and the lack of infrastructure are getting in the way of the company.

Action was taken very quickly, as the abnormal volumes were pretty easy to spot. The prices tanked pretty fast and now all token wallets are frozen, so the manipulators are unable to pull their funds away from the exchange, which prevented more issues from happening.

Fortunately, the exchange will be able to identify the manipulators soon. The company had a Know Your Customer (KYC) system ready since its launch, so the people who caused the crash can be found. However, the exchange did not determine whether it will take action against the scammers or not.

Ripple, the responsible for XRP tokens, has not commented on the situation at the moment.
