Despite the increase in sales, Ripple adjusted its sales plan for the third quarter:

“Ripple plans to adopt a more conservative approach to XRP sales in the third quarter.”

According to the plan, the company will withdraw from certain over-the-counter (OTC) markets and focus on areas that most need liquidity, which may have a negative impact on agency-oriented sales. Similarly, Ripple has set a goal for programmatic sales to drop its transaction volume by 10 basis points.

According to the report, Ripple's global quarterly trading volume decreased by 28% from the previous quarter's $595 million to the second quarter's $429.5 million. In June, Ripple changed its trading volume benchmark, and the company announced that it has partnered with data and index company CryptoCompare to rule out previously exaggerated statistics.

CryptoCompare CEO Charles Hayter said the company is using "granular trading and order data, not total trading volume."

For example, Ripple's global quarterly trading data is close to $1.8 billion, if it doesn't filter "most unverified transaction volume," up 195% from the $599 million in the first quarter. It is unclear whether Ripple will update its report that reflected its new data standards in the previous quarter.
