Ethereum could top $14,000 next year alongside Bitcoin boom

Spot Ethereum ETFs should get the green light by May, and the bank says the asset will only go up from there.

British multinational Standard Chartered isn’t just bullish on BitcoinEthereum is also going to the moon, its analysts say.
A Monday report from the bank claimed that the second-biggest digital asset could hit $8,000 by the end of this year, and $14,000 is possible by the time 2025 is up.
If, that is, spot Ethereum exchange-traded funds (ETFs) get approved, Geoffrey Kendrick, head of forex and crypto research at the firm, said in the note.
The price of Ethereum is currently hovering slightly above $3,500 per coin, CoinGecko data shows.
Several high-profile fund managers have filed paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to release Ethereum ETFs. Such investment vehicles would expose traditional investors to the cryptocurrency via shares that trade on a stock exchange.
Kendrick also said that the network’s recent Dencun upgrade could be the reason for Ethereum shooting up rapidly.
The network behind the second-biggest cryptocurrency was upgraded last week. Developers say the improvement will make transaction fees on the blockchain super cheap.
Kendrick added that the upgrade and lower costs on the network make Ethereum “more competitive.”
Standard Chartered said in a different research note Monday that Bitcoin could hit $150,000 per coin by the end of this year if the newly approved ETFs continue to be popular.
In January, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission approved 11 of the investment vehicles.
They have so far been hugely popular with investors—and the massive inflows have pushed the price of Bitcoin up significantly.
