On Thursday, the biggest asset management in the world, BlackRock, filed the iShares Ethereum Trust as a business in the state of Delaware, which may be a clue that the company will be filing for a spot Ether ETF.
According to CoinMarketCap, the price of one bitcoin increased by 6.75 percent during the same period of time, reaching 37,630 US dollars.
In addition, Thursday marked the beginning of a period of eight days during which the SEC would “theoretically approve” pending applications for spot ETFs including Bitcoin.
