Yesterday Bitcoin reached $8,800 on some exchanges, however, that was a false breakdown. As it usually happens, the top coins followed the price movement of the chief crypto. Currently, all top 10 cryptocurrencies are located in the red zone. The biggest loser is Bitcoin SV whose rate has plummeted by more than 5% over the last 24 hours.

BTC/USD 

Our previous Bitcoin prediction is coming true, as the price is coming back to the previous support at $8,200-$8,300. Buyers tried to provoke the growth of the cryptocurrency market, however, that was just another correction before an ongoing decline to move down. The pressure from the bears has not weakened.

 

BTC/USD chart by TradingView

On the 4H chart, Bitcoin remains trading within the downward channel. However, the price is unlikely to drop fast to the area below $8,000. 

An additional signal, in this case, will be a test of the trend line on RSI. Earlier, one already observed regular price rebounds and a drop in quotations at the moment when the indicator values reached the level of 75. Now the values are located near the level of 50, so the current area does not look interesting in favor of falling directly from current levels.

Crypto Trader on Bitcoin Price Action: "Things Are Looking Bullish"

Crypto Trader on Bitcoin Price Action:

However, if bulls do not manage to reach $9,000 in a few days, BTC will drop to $7,600.

Bitcoin is trading at $8,435 at press time.

ETH/USD 

Bulls could not get Ethereum to the psychological level of $200. Currently, the coin is about to face a correction after an uptrend movement started from September 26.

According to the chart, the blue line of the MACD indicator crossed the red one, suggesting the price decline to the closest area at $180. The high index of selling volume also supports the upcoming drop. In this case, Ethereum is likely to reach $180 until mid-October.

Ethereum is trading at $186.74 at press time.

XRP/USD

Yesterday, bears did not give a single chance for buyers to test the target mark of $0.29. They rolled back a pair below the average price level and set a local minimum at $0.266.

XRP/USD chart by TradingView

On the 1H chart, XRP is forming a reversal figure. The RSI indicator has not reached yet the oversold area, confirming the possible decline. 

The colored EMA/SMA line changed to the red color which means the dominance of sellers on the market. In a short-term scenario, the coin will reach $0.26 until October 14.

XRP is trading at $0.2668 at press time.

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.
