  • Ethereum’s price sees 7% weekly growth, reflecting optimism about potential ETF approval despite Q1 market corrections.
  • Coinbase analyst estimates 30-40% approval chance for Ethereum ETF, influenced by political and market factors.

With the deadline approaching for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to make decisions on spot Ethereum ETFs, Ethereum has seen increased market activity. This rise is linked to shifts in investor sentiment, which have favored digital assets in recent weeks.

Influence of Spot Ethereum ETF Approval on Market Trends

The possibility of spot Ethereum ETFs being approved is a focal point for investors, similar to earlier occurrences with Bitcoin ETFs. These expectations are built on patterns of capital inflows observed in the cryptocurrency market.

The SEC is set to make decisions on the ETF applications from VanEck and ArkInvest on May 23 and 24. Currently, Ethereum is priced at $3,129, reflecting a 3% rise in the last 24 hours and a 7% increase over the week. 

Despite experiencing a downturn after initial gains in the first quarter due to market adjustments, the sentiment around Ethereum remains positive. Approval of the ETF is anticipated to potentially trigger a rise in Ethereum’s price.

Potential Market Movements Following ETF Decisions

Should the ETF applications be rejected, the market might see minimal fluctuations, given the prevailing positive market sentiment and decreasing inflation concerns. The total market capitalization for cryptocurrencies stands at $2.43 trillion, indicating sustained interest and investment in the sector.

David Han from Coinbase has assessed the likelihood of the ETF’s approval at 30-40%, influenced by upcoming U.S. elections and other factors. He notes that the market might not fully appreciate the timing or the possibility of approval, suggesting that Ethereum could perform better than expected in the upcoming months.

Vitalik Buterin Comments on Ethereum’s Community Dynamics

Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum, recently emphasized the value of open discourse within the Ethereum community via the X app. He appreciates the community’s openness to freely express opinions, including criticism, which is not always common in other digital asset ecosystems.

Buterin has not only praised the community’s ethos but also proposed technical advancements like ‘Multidimensional Gas Pricing’ to enhance Ethereum’s efficiency and scalability. These proposals are part of ongoing efforts to improve the network’s infrastructure.

Regulatory Hurdles and Anticipation in the Crypto Community

Ethereum continues to navigate regulatory challenges, especially with the SEC potentially classifying it as a security. This classification might affect the outcome of spot Ethereum ETF applications from significant financial institutions.

As the community awaits the SEC’s decision on the VanEck application on May 23, the anticipation remains high, with potential implications for Ethereum’s market positioning.
