The past week was eventful for the cryptocurrency market. Bitcoin updated the highs of the previous months several times. The first update was on June 25; the second one occurred on the day after. As a result, the leading crypto reached $13,764. After achieving these highs the next day, Bitcoin fell by almost 20% to $10,388.

Thus, the market capitalization of Bitcoin rose from $186.3 bln to $246.8 bln. At the time of writing, we are at the level of $197 bln.

Many people associate the growth of Bitcoin and the whole crypto market with the launch of the Libra cryptocurrency, which was announced by Facebook. However, now, most of the coins are facing a correction against the US dollar, while all top assets are in the green zone in correlation to BTC. 

BTC/USD

Despite the spectacular growth, which pushed the price to almost $14,000, a reasonable correction is taking place now. Currently, Bitcoin is following our recent scenario, and, if the downtrend continues, the rate might drop to the area of $10,000-$10,300, as we predicted before.

BTC/USD chart by TradingView

On the hourly time frame, Bitcoin is likely to locate in the yellow corridor trading in the range between $10,000 and $12,600. In addition, the trading volumes are far away from their peaks when BTC was almost $14,000. The lines of the MACD indicator are neither going up no down, confirming our suggestions.

Artur Dzhalilov, CEO at Vexel, has a similar point of view:

We expect a flat in the $11000-$13500 corridor, a good time for short trading. When BTC reaches the $13500 price level again, we will be waiting for the next high at $15600.”

The price of BTC is trading at $10,972 at the time of writing. 

ETH/USD

Ethereum needs only $10 to reach $285 and justify our forecast made a few days ago. Even a record of achieving 1 mln transactions per day could stop the leading altcoin from a fall below $300.

 ETH/USD chart by TradingView

On the 4-hour chart, Ethereum is following BTC’s price movements, showing a decline from June 26. However, one should not expect a dump to $250, as the RSI pattern is moving to the oversold zone. MACD is going downwards, suggesting a fall to around $270 shortly.

The price of ETH is trading at $295.68 at the time of writing.

XRP/USD

Ripple is the only coin out of the top 3 which has not followed our earlier prediction, and its quotes have dropped to the $0.40 mark. However, against the background of Bitcoin and Ethereum, Ripple is doing much better, showing only a 3% decline.

XRP/USD chart by TradingView

Even though Ripple is not decreasing as fast as other major coins, the current level is not the bottom. According to the 4-hour chart, XRP is moving to the support zone and is about to reach it at $0.38. The RSI indicator confirms such movements, as its lines are located closer to the oversold area.

The price of XRP is trading at $0.4095 at the time of writing.

Bitcoin in Danger as New Research Shows Google Has Achieved Breakthrough in Quantum Computing

    Google's quantum computer is still too primitive to pose a threat for Bitcoin's cryptography, but things could escalate quickly

According to a new research paper published in science journal Nature, Google's quantum computer is able to perform calculations in just three minutes. To put this into perspective, it would take the fastest supercomputer about 10,000 years to perform the same operation, which signifies a major tech milestone for the search behemoth.

Google achieves "quantum supremacy"

Back in September, the Financial Times reported that Google has managed to achieve "quantum supremacy," which means that its beast is able to perform calculations that would be impossible to pull off with any other computer. 

However, technology is still way too fragile for commercialization, which is unlikely to happen anytime soon. There is hardly any practical application for quantum computers, but they do have great potential for disrupting a lot of industries, such as finance and transportation.   

Considering that the Trump administration has funneled a whopping $1.2 bln into the development of quantum computing, it might stop being just a buzz word.

Will Google's quantum success affect Bitcoin

There is also one notable application for quantum computing -- hacking Bitcoin. The headlines about Google's super-powerful juggernaut has made many wonder whether Bitcoin, whose value derives from the immutability of its Blockchain, is in danger. 

However, ex-Bitcoin Core developer Peter Todd reassured the confused crypto crowd that Google was nowhere near breaking the top coin's cryptography. On top of that, it's not even clear whether quantum computers could potentially be scalable enough for commercial use. 

Bitcoin evangelist Andreas Antonopoulos also opined that Google's quantum breakthrough would have no impact on the orange coin.
