With spot Bitcoin ETFs coming to the market, it was only a matter of time before other crypto ETFs would hit the market. Among these, Ethereum is perhaps the most wanted altcoin and hence is expected to have the greatest demand when converted into an ETF.
A crypto ETF is actually the shares of a trust which are traded on an exchange.
As of 5th of December, 2023, there are only 6 applicants.
