The air is thick with growing expectations that U.S. regulators will green-light the Ethereum ETF products – a turnaround from the skepticism that prevailed just weeks ago.

These newfound hopes have injected fresh upside momentum into the cryptocurrency markets. Analysts are setting their sights on ambitious price targets, including a potential $80,000 for Bitcoin in May.

Ethereum Price Could Soar 60% on ETF Approval

While Bitcoin is basking in the spotlight, the real star of the show is Ethereum. If the ETH ETF is approved, trading firm QCP Capital sees a 60% upside potential for Ether’s price, putting the target at approximately $6,000.

This projection is based on Bitcoin’s performance in the months following the approval of its own U.S. spot ETF in January. The wave of institutional investment and mainstream adoption pushed Bitcoin price high at that time.

As the Ethereum ETF decision nears, cryptocurrency traders and investors are bracing for the potential impact on the markets. Popular trader Jelle is among the many who assumes that the odds favor Ether bulls on this pivotal day.
