LATEST: Staked Ether Nears Record High as ETF Approval Approaches

As the potential approval of an Ether exchange-traded fund (ETF) in the U.S. becomes more probable, enthusiasm in the crypto market is palpable. According to CryptoQuant, the amount of Ether staked is approaching an all-time high at 33.3 million ETH, or 27.7% of the total supply. This surge in staking helps maintain a balance in the circulating volume of Ether, despite a growth in its total supply.

Market optimism is further fueled by Polymarket traders, who are now betting a robust 90% chance that the Ether ETF will be greenlit by July 26. Such a development could significantly enhance Ether’s liquidity and market presence, potentially positioning it on par with Bitcoin in terms of trading volumes.

Moreover, innovative mechanisms like staking and burning transaction fees are effectively countering the inflationary trends seen in Ether’s supply dynamics. These strategies ensure that a substantial portion of Ether remains locked and inactive, which could strengthen its long-term value proposition as a digital asset.
