A member of the community also noted that

“The second transaction again the source rHYTJDFrbCU1i2yCENTg9yjUrHHGaYTB4D is likely a founder as it has been mentioned before years ago as part of the block of addresses in control of either the founders or Ripple. Probably it’s Chris again? No idea about the destination r93oSNBKuFjuKt8GxhF8VYaGzzwsNDPaX5. Both destination addresses sat pretty much unused since they were activated on Dec 1st 2017.”

The Speculation

The exact identity of the parties involved in the transactions is not known, because of the anonymity feature of cryptocurrencies.
Regardless of the identity of owners of the wallet addresses involved, this occurrence has shown the power of Ripple network over others.
