Ethereum is up +19% in 24 hours. Why?

And what's moving the markets today

Hello Investors!

Let’s see what’s moving the markets today.

Ethereum is up +19% in 24 hours. Why?

Source: Leonardo.AI

Yesterday, the famous Bloomberg ETF analysts updated their chances of the SEC approving ETH ETFs from 25% to 75%.

This results in immediate pump and ride to $3,700 levels.

The SEC has asked exchanges to update their 19b-4 filings on an accelerated basis’ for spot Ethereum ETFs.

The deadline is in 2 days, we are waiting for the decision.

BTC and SOL follow, both raising in price and squeezing short positions.

Thoughts

I mentioned in my latest post that it’s one of the last chances to buy. This approval is something inevitable, it’s again a question of when rather than if.

No matter what happens, we should expect high volatility this week.

If the SEC declines the applications, we might get another chance to buy. If they approve, then it depends on the inflows and how the market reacts —> post Hong Kong’s approval the BTC dropped because of low interest.

5 of 7 on-chain indicators suggest the bull run is just beginning.

Bitcoin market dominance is above 55%, signaling the altseason is yet to start.

Bitcoin MVRV-Z Score is still under 6. This indicator compares BTC's current market value to its historical average value and usually tops at around six during cycle peaks. Now around 2.

These on-chain metrics can seem misleading but, they are a great way to analyze what is happening and I suggest everyone to consider these together with the big macro picture.

I’ve written a piece on the most important charts here, which you can leverage to understand what we are looking at and where to find the charts.

Deutsche Bank has joined Project Guardian, a tokenization initiative led by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

The bank will launch a follow-up to its 2023 Digital Assets Management Access (DAMA) project, which explored token issuance and transfer on the Ethereum blockchain.

The bank will collaborate with Memento Blockchain and Interop Labs to develop zero-knowledge Layer 2 scaling solutions and ensure secure blockchain interoperability.

I’ve been waiting almost 2 weeks to get some funds from my broker. Tokenization is the future of finance. Nearly instant settlement and clearing, without the need to wait 5+ days to get the funds.

Franklin Templeton, HSBC, JP Morgan, UBS Asset Management, and many more are already exploring the use cases under the Project Guardian, and separately.

It is difficult to get direct exposure, but the fact that these companies are considering public smart chains, mainly Ethereum and Avalanche, is a strong bullish case for this upcoming bull market.
