Ethereum’s Potential to Surge: VanEck’s Bullish Forecast

VanEck’s Matthew Sigel, head of digital assets research, has outlined a scenario where Ethereum (ETH) could reach a staggering $154,000.

Market Share Expansion

Sigel believes Ethereum can achieve this six-figure price by capturing a significant portion of the market:

  • 90% of smart contract value
  • 15% of total financial markets
  • 50% of advertising hosted on open-source blockchains
  • 20-25% of IT infrastructure and AI on open-source blockchains

Global Economic Factors

Sigel also emphasizes the influence of the global macro economy on Ethereum’s prospects:

  • Strong performance in emerging markets
  • Weakening US dollar
  • Regulatory embrace of digital assets or their transfer to other countries

VanEck’s Targets

VanEck’s report sets a base case target for Ethereum of $22,000, a potential gain of 518%. To reach the bull case target of $154,000, Ethereum would need to appreciate by 4,225% from its current price of $3,560.
