While Ethereum is second dominant cryptocurrency, the institutional interest in Ether as Asset is increasing day by day. The best example of this is huge success of Grayscale’s Ethereum Trust Fund (ETHE). If we look at stats ETHE has given 59% returns to investors year to end and the ETH holdings year to end have gone up by 227%.

While, ETHE is not an ETF in any manner but its success has paved the way for finance companies to launch an Ethereum ETF for their customers.
