Ripple (XRP) lost more than 8% in price following the release of a partnership with Banco Santander.

At the same time, the crypto market turned red and lost nearly $9 bln in the past 24 hours with Bitcoin price dropping below $6,500. The downward trend of most major cryptocurrencies, such as Ether (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Stellar (XLM), could be due to the low trading volumes.

As it stands, the crypto market should demonstrate higher volumes for cryptocurrencies to increase in price.
