Lido Finance and RocketPool Governance Tokens Surge Amid BlackRock’s Ether ETF Speculation

Ether (ETH) saw a significant surge on Thursday, fueled by anticipation surrounding the potential entry of asset management giant BlackRock (BLK) into the market with an Ether exchange-traded fund (ETF). The surge in both Ethereum-based staking tokens and Coinbase shares was notable.

BlackRock Advisors registered the iShares Ethereum Trust as a corporate entity in Delaware. Reports of this filing on Thursday morning caused Ether’s value to skyrocket, reaching as high as $2,100—a level it hasn’t seen since the April Shanghai upgrade. Although it has slightly receded to $2,006, it still maintains a 6% gain for the session.

Coinbase, a prominent crypto exchange and a significant platform for ETH staking, experienced an 8% increase in its stock value at the time of reporting. Notably, Coinbase charges a 25% commission on user rewards obtained through staking.

In the wake of this news, governance tokens associated with staking platforms like Lido Finance (LDO) and RocketPool (RPL) observed a considerable upsurge, rising by 7% and 8%, respectively, in the past 24 hours, according to the data. This surge showcases the market’s response to the potential for BlackRock’s Ether ETF and the associated impacts on the crypto ecosystem.
