Ethereum Prints 'Banana Zone Candle' With Largest One-Day Market Cap Gain At $71B Following Potential ETF Approval

Zinger Key Points
  • Crypto trader Michaël van de Poppe notes Ethereum's strength at current levels and discloses his heavy allocation to altcoins.
  • One crypto trader noted that Ethereum added Solana’s entire market cap in a single day.

Ethereum ETH/USD on Monday saw its largest single-day price and market capitalization gain, as spot Ethereum ETF odds sharply increased to 75%.

What Happened: Pseudonymous crypto trader Hsaka quipped that Ethereum’s largest one-day market capitalization gain of $70.7 billion created the “Banana Zone candle.” Another crypto trader agreed:

Michael van de Poppe is particularly enthusiastic about Ethereum’s recent performance, noting its strength above the $3,600 level. With the possibility of an ETF approval looming, van de Poppe has high hopes for Ethereum's sustained growth.

"Everything within the Ethereum ecosystem waking up as well," he adds. Buoyed by this optimism, van de Poppe is fully invested in altcoins, expecting them to ride the wave of Ethereum's resurgence.

DonAlt, who was previously apprehensive of more upside, thinks the introduction of an ETH ETF could change the state of the market. "If we get an ETH ETF all bets are off," he declares, suggesting that such an event could propel Ethereum to new all-time highs. DonAlt highlights the transformative impact an ETF approval could have on market sentiment.
