“10,000,000 #XRP [2,621,877 USD] transferred from Funding Wallet 1 to unknown wallet”

The block height of the transaction was #49504399. The transaction was carried out in 12 drops between the funding wallet address rU1bPM4q2rVhC73F7znm7Lt5QnYzZsV35q and wallet address r4hZoYW8eEkTJMci6qFPGBxqxQfqyWyvB5, with a timestamp of 21:55:00 UTC on 21 August 2019.
