Ethereum Bull Cycle on the Horizon, Says Bitwise CIO

Matt Hougan, Chief Investment Officer of Bitwise Asset Management, predicts a significant surge in Ethereum (ETH) value.

Spot Ethereum ETFs: A $15 Billion Opportunity

Hougan anticipates that spot Ethereum exchange-traded funds (ETFs) could attract up to $15 billion within 18 months of their approval, which is expected soon.

Bullish Tailwinds

Hougan identifies two additional factors that could drive ETH’s growth:

  • Reduced Regulatory Uncertainty: Recent regulatory developments have eased concerns about Ethereum’s legal status.
  • Dencun Upgrade: This network upgrade aims to reduce transaction costs and improve data availability, potentially boosting ETH’s appeal.

Current Market Conditions

As of writing, Ethereum is trading at $2,974, down 3.6% in the past 24 hours.
