Ethereum Decisively Above $3,000 as ETF Launch Nears

Ethereum ETF Launch Expected on 18 July

Bloomberg Analyst Eric Balchunas expects Ethereum ETFs to launch by the 18 of July 2024. The top analyst said the date was the most likely for an ETF launch since most applicants had already submitted their amended applications.

After the SEC made some comments concerning the S-1 applications, all applicants except one soon began re-filing their amended drafts between July 8 and 10. Bitwise had filed their amended S-1 application the previous week.

However, one critical component remained in the applications. Balchunas pointed out that the lack of fees, which had to be mentioned in the applications, shows that at least one more round of applications is being returned for correction.
