Ethereum Spot ETF: A new era for crypto as a commodity?

Finally, the day has dawned when the spot Ethereum ETF will be recognized as a commodity.

The Chief Legal Officer with Coinbase takes the opportunity to reiterate his earlier claim that Ethereum is indeed and essentially a commodity, as shared through a post on X. 

Following a prolonged wait, 19b-4 forms pertaining to spot Ethereum ETFs have received the consent, paving the way for formal consent for all ETH ETFs. Coinbase is by far one of the greatest advocates of the cryptocurrency ETF, being a company that has been recognized for attaining one of the top positions in the crypto exchange industry. Finally, Ethereum will join the bandwagon of Bitcoin as the sole crypto ETF accessible in the market. This will help in opening the doors for more to follow.  

After receiving the green flag for spot Bitcoin ETFs around the beginning of the year, the markets were in a wait-and-watch mode regarding the future of Ethereum. 

With the Ethereum factor falling in place, providers must queue up for the S-1 forms to receive the due consent. The forms become mandatory for publicly providing fresh securities and carrying out trading activities. It is possible that the Securities and Exchange Commission takes longer to process every S-1 form, particularly if the regulator is not agreeable to ETFs. One needs to be prepared for short or long delays on the matter. 

In the meantime, persons such as Grewal are highly optimistic regarding the ETFs and their overall acceptance. Following the news, it is anticipated that the price of Ethereum will shoot skywards, similar to Bitcoin. Presently, the trading price of ETH has reached $3,800, signifying an increase of 4%.
