TOTAL XRP PLACED IN ESCROW 49,500,000,013

* As of April 12th, 2020. Total includes business development agreements that are still pending

An unknown proportion of XRP in escrow is XRP that is likely to be delivered to third parties, whether sold or given away of exchanged for services to RL.

anyone have any idea how much and what of anything the price impact would be?

nothing to stop someone promised XRP borrowing it, dumping in market and then covering short with future delivery of XRP from Ripple.

The asterisk points to the total XRP distributed, not total XRP escrowed. I think it was put there originally to account for the 5B XRP promised to R3.

How I read it is that they keep more XRP out of escrow, namely the XRP for pending business development agreements. This XRP is still in the hands of Ripple. Whether in escrow or not, doesn't make any difference for the potential amount of XRP holdings of the business partner.

Anyways, this is what it said 11 March 2019: * As of February 24th, 2019. Total includes business development agreements that are still pending.

Basically saying 2 things: 1) the date as of when this number was calculated. Then a point (.). And then 2) "Total includes business development agreements that are still pending". So nothing new, just same old.
