Pundit Predicts A Spot Solana ETF Approval After Ethereum

By Newton Gitonga – May 23, 2024

As the cryptocurrency community eagerly anticipates the potential approval of Spot Ethereum exchange-traded funds(ETFs), Matrixport co-founder Daniel Yang has ignited speculation about Solana (SOL) being the next in line for such investment products.

Yang’s remarks come amid heightened interest in cryptocurrency ETFs following recent regulatory developments.

On Tuesday, May 21, Yang highlighted the significant impact of reports suggesting that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has requested issuers to update Form 19b-4 in their product applications. Notably, following these reports, he pointed out the surge in the Ethereum to Bitcoin (ETH/BTC) pair, indicating market optimism surrounding ETF approvals and expressing hope of seeing a SOL ETF soon after Ether’s.

“What’s the trade, if ETH ETF really get approved in two days?…. A better trade I will argue for is: “BUY SOL/ETH.” This may sound absurd and definitely unpopular. Reasons are: 1) SOL will be the No.1 next in line if ETH ETF get approved.” Wrote Yang.

Elsewhere, analysts, including one identified as ‘Gumshoe,’ also view the approval of Ethereum-based instruments as potentially more advantageous for Solana than for Ethereum itself. Earlier this week, the pundit argued that a rejection could make Ethereum less appealing while enhancing Solana’s attractiveness as an investment option.

Nevertheless, the cryptocurrency community is concerned about the broader implications of ETF approval processes. Should any ETF applications be rejected, it could deliver a significant blow to the sector, prompting what one observer likened to a “nuclear strike” on market sentiment.

Industry experts have outlined bullish scenarios for Solana’s price trajectory. Ryan McMillin, investment director at Merkle Tree Capital, predicts a rise in Solana’s value to $400 by November 2024, citing a potential catalyst in meme coins related to the upcoming US election campaign.

Echoing this sentiment, Daniel Chung, co-founder of Syncracy Capital, anticipates Solana will revisit $200 by the end of May. These projections reflect a positive outlook on Solana’s fundamentals and positioning within the broader cryptocurrency landscape.

Moreover, Solana’s technological prowess has not gone unnoticed, with CoinGecko analysts recognizing its network as the fastest among major blockchains. Notably, on April 6, the Solana network achieved a record-high average daily transaction throughput of 1,504, further solidifying its status as a leading blockchain platform. Analysts from The Digital Asset Fund Manager Survey also highlighted how institutional demand for the crypto asset had soared in the same month, underscoring their bullish outlook.

That said, as anticipation builds around the potential approval of Ethereum ETFs, all eyes are now turning to Solana, poised to capitalize on the momentum generated by its predecessor. Whether Solana will follow in Ethereum’s footsteps remains to be seen, but market sentiment suggests that the cryptocurrency’s future is brimming with potential.

At press time, Solana was trading at $171, reflecting a 4.28% drop over the past 24 hours. However, the coin surged nearly 9% over the past week, with a market capitalization of $77 billion, according to CoinMarketCap data.
