The anticipation of an Ethereum (ETH) exchange-traded fund (ETF) following the approval of multiple Bitcoin ETFs has sparked a price rally for ETH, leading it to an 18-month high surpassing $2,600.
Following the Bitcoin ETF approval, Ethereum, as the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, is expected to be next in line for gaining ETF status. Optimism is sky-high as evidenced by a significant movement of ETH from Binance to Compound by an investor known as a ‘whale’ in the crypto sphere.
Strong confidence in Ethereum’s future led to a massive influx of new addresses and heightened token movement, underlining investors' belief that Ethereum's price could rise further post a potential ETF approval. Despite Bitcoin capturing significant media attention, traders predict Ethereum's price to surge even more.
Ethereum's rally also drove gains in other large-cap cryptocurrencies including Solana, Cardano, and others, resulting in an overall crypto market increase of 4% to $1.77 trillion.
While the timeline for an Ethereum ETF approval remains uncertain, Ethereum's robust network metrics and growing interest from investors point towards a promising future.
