ETH ETF Approval Sparks Bull Run and Regulatory Optimism

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently made a groundbreaking decision by approving the first spot Ethereum exchange-traded funds (ETFs), causing a surge in Ethereum price and sparking excitement among crypto experts who believe that the bull run has just begun.

This positive regulatory momentum continued as the House of Representatives passed its first crypto bill, and the UK gave the green light to crypto exchange-traded products. Signs of an imminent approval were evident earlier in the week when exchanges amended their filings to exclude staking.

According to Kaiko Research, the market had been gradually pricing in an ETF approval over the past month amid growing uncertainty around Ethereum’s regulatory status. The approval by the SEC implicitly stated that Ethereum (without staking) is considered a commodity rather than a security, setting a precedent for how similar tokens will be regulated in the U.S.

The approval of ETH ETFs led to a surge in implied volatility and a dramatic shift in sentiment in derivatives markets. Ethereum price hit a 2-month high as bulls aim to break above the $4,000 level, with experts predicting further inflows proportional to the asset’s market cap.

Open interest in ETH perpetual futures hit a new record high of $11 billion within just three days, indicating strong capital inflows into the space. The ETH to BTC ratio also surged, though it remains below previous highs. The launch of ETH ETFs could bring selling pressure from potential outflows or redemptions, particularly from Grayscale’s ETHE.

Despite uncertainties surrounding potential outflows from ETHE, experts remain optimistic about Ethereum’s future performance, with the possibility of a quick move towards the record high set in 2021. The market impact of ETHE’s redemptions remains uncertain, but the overall sentiment is positive for Ethereum’s continued growth and success in the crypto space.
