“The spot market is still under control here, pay close attention to around $70,000,” he wrote in part of a post on X (formerly Twitter).

This historic event is expected to take place this month.

“This uptrend is likely to continue as the market waits for ETH ETFs to generate new demand. The options market certainly reflects this, with ETH volumes still trading 15% above BTC volumes.

“Another reason for the continued uptrend is that speculators are increasing their long positions in other major cryptocurrencies in anticipation of additional spot ETF approvals in the near future.”

The ETH/USD price reached its highest level in a month, at $3,849 at the open on Wall Street.
