What the Crypto Community Expects from Ethereum

Crypto community members are expecting an explosive growth in the rate of the second largest cryptocurrency by capitalization, Ethereum (ETF). The main driver of Ether’s positive dynamics could be the upcoming launch of spot ETFs for cryptocurrency.

We tell you what Ethereum forecast representatives of the crypto industry give and what levels of the coin, in their opinion, are worth monitoring.

What’s Happening with the Ethereum ETF

On July 9, 2024, issuers of spot Ethereum ETFs updated their applications. According to Bloomberg analysts, this move indicates readiness for the launch of the instrument on July 18.

Market participants have high hopes for the launch of spot Ethereum ETFs. For example, Galaxy Digital believes that the instrument will attract $7.5 billion in the first six months. Analysts at K33 Research, in turn, predict that against the backdrop of the launch of spot Ethereum ETFs, Ether will overtake Bitcoin in terms of profitability.

Despite the positive forecasts, ETH demonstrated negative dynamics in the run-up to the expected approval of the instrument, which hurt many investors. For example, the founder of the Tron crypto project Justin Sun lost $66 million amid Ethereum’s fall to a five-month low in early July 2024. The “smart money” responded to the decline of Ether by selling the coin.

Bitcoin was actively growing ahead of the launch of spot BTC ETFs in the US. However, after the instrument was launched on the market, the cryptocurrency demonstrated negative dynamics. It took Bitcoin almost a month to recover to previous levels. The cryptocurrency came under pressure from the sell-off of the spot Bitcoin ETF GBTC from Grayscale, which the company built on the basis of its BTC fund.

The problem is that Grayscale has a similar Ethereum fund that it wants to transform into spot ETH for cryptocurrency in the same way. If history repeats itself, ETH risks being pressured by a sell-off.

However, many crypto community members believe that Ethereum will not follow in the footsteps of Bitcoin. In their opinion, the launch of spot Ethereum-ETFs, on the contrary, may trigger active growth of the cryptocurrency rate.
