Ether Expected to Gain Value Relative to Bitcoin as ETF Anticipation Grows

Title: Ether Expected to Gain Value Relative to Bitcoin as Spot ETF Approval Boosts Investor Interest

In a recent development, Ether is anticipated to continue gaining value relative to Bitcoin in the near term, fueled by the excitement surrounding the approval of spot exchange-traded funds (ETFs) for the second-largest digital asset by market cap.

According to Arbelos Markets co-founder Joshua Lim, the ETH/BTC ratio is expected to keep marching up to 0.06. Currently standing at 0.056, the ratio has steadily climbed from a multi-month low of 0.045 in mid-May following the surprise approval of eight spot ether ETFs by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) last week.

While the SEC approved the ether spot ETFs on Thursday, the actual trading of these ETFs may not commence for a few weeks or months, unlike Bitcoin ETFs which started trading immediately after approval.

Lim’s perspective is supported by K33 Research, which believes that Ether is well-positioned for relative strength against Bitcoin until the spot ETFs are launched. The market report from K33 favors increased exposure to Ether at this time.

Furthermore, Lim noted that the Ether market is currently undergoing a re-evaluation period and price adjustment, suggesting a longer re-rating rotation for the asset. Other high market-cap assets are also gaining attention post the Ether ETF approval, with an uptick seen across legacy proof-of-work coins.

Despite a slight decrease of over 2.7% in Ether’s price in the past 24 hours, trading at $3,839, the overall market sentiment remains positive for the digital asset. The GM 30 Index, representing a selection of the top 30 cryptocurrencies, also experienced a 2.67% decrease to 145.40 during the same period.

As the anticipation for the launch of spot Ether ETFs continues to drive investor interest, the crypto market is poised for further developments in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more updates on this evolving story.
