VanEck’s Ethereum ETF Fund is Now Available for Trading

VanEck, a prominent global investment manager, has launched the Ethereum Strategy ETF fund, named EFUT. The fund, now available for trading since Sept. 29, 2023, aims for capital appreciation by investing in Ethereum futures contracts. Notably, it will not invest directly in Ethereum or other cryptocurrencies.

This new offering marks a crucial advancement for the crypto sector. Over the weekend, VanEck expressed its commitment to Ethereum’s growth, pledging to contribute 10% of EFUT ETF’s profits to Protocol Guild. This organization funds over 150 individuals vital to maintaining Ethereum’s core protocol. The commitment is set to last for at least a decade.

The introduction of Ethereum-based exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in the U.S. represents the culmination of persistent efforts by various companies to create investment instruments focused on Ethereum (ETH), the world’s second-largest digital asset. Alongside VanEck’s recent launch, other firms like ProShares and Bitwise have announced their Ethereum ETFs, set to begin trading soon.

This development is particularly significant, considering past reluctance by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to approve such trading instruments. As a testament to the positive momentum, Ethereum’s price has risen, with ETH increasing by 2% over the past day, reaching a value of $1,712.
