The price of Ether (ETH),
Ethereum’s own cryptocurrency , is approaching its previous all-time high this Tuesday. The local maximum today was fixed at $ 1,457, just $ 3 lower than the absolute one set in January.ETH’s current ascent from $ 1,200 comes amid growing doubts in traditional financial markets, which last week were unable to buy shares of certain companies due to restrictions imposed by brokers. Analysts believe these actions could attract new users to the decentralized finance (DeFi) space.“When investment and trading platforms like Robinhood stop trading on certain assets like GameStop and Nokia, and NASDAQ President Adena Friedman urges regulators to prevent retail investors from coordinating on social media, the cryptocurrency scenario is only

However, less than a week is left before the launch of Ethereum futures on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) – the instrument will be presented for trading on Monday, February 8.Analyst Ayush Jindal
