Ether Price (ETH) and Bitcoin Price (BTC) Gain on Hope for ETF Approval

Already modestly higher during U.S. trading hours Monday, the price of ether (ETH) jumped more than 10% after two well-followed Bloomberg ETF analysts greatly upped their odds of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission approving spot ETH ETFs.

“James Seyffart and I are increasing our odds of spot Ether ETF approval to 75% (up from 25%), hearing chatter this afternoon that SEC could be doing a 180 on this (increasingly political issue), so now everyone scrambling (like us everyone else assumed they’d be denied),” tweeted Bloomberg Senior ETF Analyst Eric Balchunas.

The SEC this week faces a number of final deadlines on the spot ETF approvals/denials after having delayed decisions on the funds a number of times.

Bitcoin (BTC) is adding to gains alongside ETH’s advance, now higher by more than 5% and just shy of the $70,000 mark. Also on the move is the Grayscale Ethereum Trust (ETHE), a closed-end fund that Grayscale has proposed converting into a spot ETF. It’s recently been trading at more than a 20% discount to net asset value as investors bet against SEC approval, but is now higher by more than 23% on Monday.
