JPMorgan Sees Lower Demand for ETH ETFs Compared to BTC

As a seasoned researcher with extensive experience in the cryptocurrency market, I’ve closely followed the developments surrounding the potential launch of spot Ethereum exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The recent prediction by JPMorgan analysts that demand for Ether ETFs will be significantly lower than that of Bitcoin ETFs aligns with my own analysis.

As an analyst at JPMorgan, I would assert that the anticipated demand for spot Ether exchange-traded funds (ETFs) is projected to be lower than that of Bitcoin ETFs based on our research. Our forecast suggests potential net inflows ranging from $3 billion to $6 billion for Ether ETFs in the year 2024, depending on whether staking will be permitted.

As an analyst, I’ve observed that the advantage of Bitcoin in the crypto market has saturated the overall demand for crypto asset exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

Additionally, Bitcoin’s recent halving event has boosted its demand, which is not presently a factor for Ether.

Furthermore, the lack of staking capabilities in Ether ETFs diminishes their appeal for investment platforms that offer attractive staking returns.

Ether exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are on the verge of being authorized in the United States, but their launch hinges on the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) giving its approval to their registration statements (S-1 filings).
