The recently approved Spot Ethereum ETFs have been predicted to launch in June after updated filings from both BlackRock and Grayscale. Bloomberg analyst Eric Balchunas forecasted the arrival of a crypto-based investment vehicle that will be the second such offering in the United States.

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) surprised the entire finance sector with its rather abrupt approval of the ETH ETF. Although they did receive approval in May, the market is awaiting the products to go live, with some expectations arriving as June nears.

Ethereum ETF Could Go Live in June, Experts Predict

Throughout this year, ETFs have dominated the digital asset sector. The industry’s landmark approval arrived in January, with Spot Bitcoin ETFs launching. The impact was near-immediate, as BTC would reach an all-time high just three months after its debut.

Now, the industry is awaiting whether the second-largest cryptocurrency could experience a similar success story. Subsequently, the recently approved Spto Ethereum ETFs are predicted to go live in June after recent filings. Specifically, Bloomberg’s Balchunas noted when in the month the product could officially launch.

Balchunas forecasted that the ETFs could arrive by the end of the month. However, he also noted that he is maintaining an over/under date of July 4th. Furthermore, he relayed his expectation that there should be “one more round” of comments between issues and the SEC.

There is a belief that the SEC’s approval was more political than anything else. Moreover, its political motives were to dispel the perception that the agency was ant-crypto. With the Ethereum product being approved, that has been achieved. Therefore, analysts don’t expect any reason for the agency to rush the official launch of the offering.
