In terms of digital currencies, the markets focus over the past day has been on Ethereum. The first thing to mention is that the SEC has ended its investigation into the Ethereum 2.0 blockchain ecosystem. Consensys, an Ethereum developer, tweeted: The SEC Enforcement Division has informed us that it will end its investigation into Ethereum 2.0. This means that the SEC will not charge that the sale of Ethereum is a securities transaction. The market sees this as an important positive, pushing the price of Ethereum to rebound, rising more than 3.+% on the day.

In addition, James Seyffart, an ETF analyst at Bloomberg, said that Ethereum spot may be launched before July 4, which once again attracted traders to place bets. It is worth mentioning that Lark Davis, a cryptocurrency analyst, pointed out that Glassnode data showed that the balance of ETH exchanges has reached an 8-year low, and only 10% of ETH is currently circulating on exchanges. At the same time, he also pointed out that if the Ethereum spot ETF begins trading in the next two weeks, a large amount of institutional funds will flow into the market, and a large-scale supply shock is coming.
