Why does Chris Larsen have soo many wallets?


Recommended Posts

I started a little project. I'm looking through the top wallets, currently got done scanning through the one's with 100 million XRP range (about 75 wallets). Most of these are exchanges from what I can see, and same goes for the wallets with 500 million+ XRP.  But I noticed there's a handful of wallets that have around 500 million XRP, and on bithomp it says the wallet was activated by Chris Larsen 8 years ago, almost nothing has moved from these wallets.  What are these?

Are these his personal wallets or is he/Ripple waiting to use these large amounts of XRP for something?

The question which account belongs to who is pretty interesting. Imo one can only take ownership by acknowledging an account belongs to you. Once that is established dis-ownership can be deducted, but only if the receiving party (e.g. ripple-works) takes ownership of that new account..

Whoa! Thank you for showing me this. I didn't know you could pass ownership of wallets. Will be scanning through this document. Thanks.

Well, look. Imagine I own XRP, I have it in my account. But if I send you some XRP, how can I proof that I no longer own that XRP? I can't proof it, unless you show that you own the account where I sent the XRP to ...
