October 7 has started with the ongoing decline of the cryptocurrency market. However, not all top coins have gone down followed by Bitcoin. XRP, Bitcoin Cash, and EOS are the exceptions from the rule. Moreover, the third most popular crypto has rocketed by more than 4% over the last 24 hours.

BTC/USD 

Bitcoin accumulated volume in the upper part of the channel and the descending triangle was formed which caused a further decline. The price of BTC is about to continue moving down which is confirmed by the absence of buyers and the RSI indicator that has got out from the oversold area.

In this case, the price will soon reach the key level at $7,700. When that happens, the leading crypto might show a bounceback to the nearest resistance at $8,000. This is confirmed by the fact that sellers are also running out of steam based on the decreasing amount of selling volume.

Bitcoin is trading at $7,825 at press time.

ETH/USD 

Our recent Ethereum price prediction is coming true, as the coin continued its downtrend movement. The trading volume has declined significantly over the last week. According to the chart, the pair could not overcome the resistance of the moving average EMA55, which indicates the weakness of buyers.

ETH/USD 6-hour chart

In terms of the short-term price forecast, one can expect a rollback to the support area of 50% Fibo ($151.72). Both MACD and RSI also indicate the possible drop to the mentioned above levels. Currently, there are neither technical no fundamental reasons that could influence the price rise of the leading altcoin.

Ethereum is trading at $170.77 at press time.

XRP/USD

XRP is the top gainer today, its rate has soared by 4.43% over the last day. Since September 24 the coin has been located in the uptrend movement, followed by a relatively high trading volume.

What is more interesting, the price of XRP has been rising against the stagnation of other top coins.

XRP/USD chart by TradingView

On the 4H chart, XRP has almost touched the resistance at $0.2710, however, the further rise is unlikely to happen due to the overbought RSI indicator. Respectively, traders should expect XRP at the support area at $0.25 in the upcoming days.

XRP is trading at $0.2622 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.
