It was bought by FundingWallet1 from siliconvcf.

Strangely siliconvcf was activated by chris larsen initially, same for FundingWallet1. 

 

Chris Larsen is an American business executive and angel investor best known for co-founding several Silicon Valley technology startups, including one based on peer to peer lending

Did you see the invoice to claim it was a purchase? :dash1:

This Larsen's wallet. I assure you, he didn't pay a cent for that xrp. 

If that's true, holy crap. Such money. I can only imagine.

3 founders got 20% of all XRP as a 'reward'. Google it

They'll be VERY soon in the top 10 richest of USA. Now they are in the 14th position.

True. At $20 Ripple will be the most expensive start-up in the world.

How much of the founders' XRP is still owned by them? Any idea?

Jed probably shed a few billions, and AFAIK Chris Larsen donated to charity at some point, but I don't have accurate numbers.

The payment was made by by "siliconvcf." Google brings up a Silicon Valley Community Foundation. No clue if that's who actually made the purchase in light of what other posters have said about Chris Larsen, but the About page of its site says SVCF is the largest community foundation in the world, with more than $8 billion in assets under management.

Here's a list of its corporate partners:

Again, I have no idea is siliconvcf really is SVCF, but this is intriguing.
