The crypto industry is abuzz following the anticipated approval of an Ethereum ETF by the SEC. This anticipation has sparked speculation about the next cryptocurrency that could receive such approval. According to Daniel Yan, co-founder of Matrixport, Solana (SOL) could be next in line.

Crypto: The impact of the Ethereum ETF on Solana!

The approval of a spot Ethereum ETF could have a domino effect on other cryptos, including Solana. Recall that the approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF led to a 12% rise in the ETH/BTC pair the following week. Yan suggests that Solana could see similar dynamics if the Ethereum ETF is approved.

Yan recommends crypto investors consider purchasing Solana for Ethereum (SOL/ETH) in anticipation of the approval of the Ethereum ETF. This strategy is not yet crowded compared to Ethereum’s recent surge, which could provide an attractive investment opportunity.

Prospects for Solana ETF approvals

Filing a spot ETF for Solana could be difficult as there is no SOL Futures ETF yet. Unlike Bitcoin and Ethereum, which had actively traded futures ETFs at the time their spot ETFs were approved. Solana therefore misses this critical step, which could hinder its immediate consideration for a spot ETF.

Although no Solana ETF is currently approved in the United States, alternatives like the Grayscale Solana Trust (GSOL) and products such as VanEck’s Solana ETN and 21Shares’ Solana ETP provide exposure to SOL prices , although through derivatives. These products allow crypto investors to trade SOL indirectly, mirroring its price movements.

The potential approval of an Ethereum spot ETF by the SEC has the potential to transform the crypto market, with Solana in its sights to benefit from this regulatory development. Investors and market participants will closely monitor developments. Because, they could portend new opportunities for investment and innovation in the digital asset space.
