Coinbase Believes Spot Ethereum ETF Approval is Near Coinbase believes the probability of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approving spot Ethereum ETFs by the end of the month is between 30% and 40%. This assessment is based on the current status of the SEC’s review process for spot Ethereum ETF applications. Coinbase Institutional Research Analyst David Han emphasized that the SEC is not obligated to approve all spot Ethereum ETFs simultaneously. Han noted that different ETF applications could be evaluated separately and that a gradual approval process could be followed. Coinbase anticipates that the approval of spot Ethereum ETFs would have a significant impact on the market, increasing institutional investors’ interest in Ethereum. This could lead to notable increases in Ethereum’s price and liquidity. Additionally, the approval of ETFs could provide greater confidence and stability in the overall cryptocurrency market.
