Excitement Builds for Ethereum ETF Launch in the United States

The long-awaited arrival of Ethereum-based exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that can directly hold Ethereum (ETH) is set to make a significant impact in the United States financial market. According to a report by K33 Research, these ETFs are expected to attract a whopping $4 billion in inflows within the first five months of their launch.

The report highlights the growing excitement surrounding ETH ETFs, with traders positioning themselves for potential gains. K33 Research based its forecast on the comparison of assets under management in existing ETH-based exchange-traded products (ETPs) worldwide and similar Bitcoin (BTC) products. The report also takes into account the open interest in futures contracts on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), indicating a strong institutional demand for ETH in the U.S.

With Ethereum’s OI on CME steadily increasing since the introduction of ETH futures in 2021, K33 Research estimates that ETH ETF inflows could range between $3 billion and $4.8 billion within the first five months. This influx of capital could lead to the accumulation of 800,000 to 1.26 million ETH in the ETFs, potentially creating a supply crunch for the asset.

Vetle Lunde, senior analyst at K33 Research, believes that this supply absorption shock could result in price appreciation for ETH, similar to the rally seen in bitcoin prices following the introduction of U.S. spot ETFs. Analysts predict that with the launch of Ethereum ETFs, the price of ETH will start outperforming BTC after a prolonged downtrend in the ETH-BTC pair.

The recent approval of key filings for spot ETH ETFs by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has paved the way for their trading in the U.S. Market observers anticipate that these ETFs could start trading as early as late June or early July, marking a significant milestone for the cryptocurrency market in the United States.
