It looks like Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market are two different dimensions. Against the background of BTC’s 12% growth, altcoins have become stuck at their levels for yesterday. Only Ethereum may be an exception from the rule, showing an almost 5% increase compared to its rate yesterday.

Bitcoin market share

In this regard, the trading volume is approaching the vital $100 bln mark, and now the index makes up $94.9 bln. The dominance rate of Bitcoin also keeps increasing and constitutes 61.9%.

BTC/USD

The rapid price rise of Bitcoin continues, and it is not yet clear what can stop it. On the night of Wednesday, June 26, the price of the first cryptocurrency not only exceeded $12,000 but also came close to $13,000 (+ 13.5% in the last 24 hours).

BTC/USD 1-hour chart

On the hourly chart, Bitcoin is looking overbought, confirmed by the RSI indicator, which has peaked above the 75 mark. One can also see a bullish wave since June 21, and the price might reach $12,500 again before any bearish tendencies appear. In a short-term scenario, traders might expect a rollback to the corridor of $11,600-$11,800.

ETH/USD

Our recent Ethereum price forecast more than justified itself, as the asset has not just reached $320, but surpassed this mark and could peak above $330, where it is located now.

ETH/USD 1-hour chart

The chief altcoin is trying to keep up with Bitcoin, and it is succeeding in it to a certain extent. Analyzing the hourly chart, ETH jumped from $316 to $336 just in 1 hour. Respectively, traders might fix their positions, pushing the price to the orange corridor of $315-$325 in a few days. RSI pattern is at its maximum levels also indicates oversold of the asset.

The price of ETH is trading at $330.30 at the time of writing.

XRP/USD

Ripple, as well as Ethereum, keeps trading according to our prediction yesterday, locating in the range between $0.45 and $0.49. The price of XRP has almost not changed over the last day, increased by only 1%.

XRP/USD 4-hour chart

Analyzing the long-term perspective of XRP rate, it is seen that the general mood remains bullish, and the asset has all chances to achieve $0.50 in the first days of July. The following technical patterns back such a scenario. RSI is looking downwards, confirming the reluctance of buyers to leave the market. The MACD indicator is also about to get out from the stagnation and move higher.

    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.
