The other day, Ethereum managed to hit a new ATH. At the moment of writing this article, ETH is trading in the green and the coin is priced at $2,597.93.
Yahoo Finance noted that ETH touched a new peak on Wednesday, with participants citing media reports about the European Investment Bank’s plans to launch a “digital bond” sale on the Ethereum blockchain network.
Bloomberg reported on Tuesday, citing unnamed sources, that the “EIB plans to issue a two-year 100-million euro digital bond, with the sale to be led by Goldman Sachs, Banco Santander, and Societe Generale, according to analysts.”
Ethereum hits a new ATH
Yahoo Finance notes that “ETH hit a record high of $2,713.95 on Wednesday, following a more than 5% rally the previous day. It was last up 1.4% at $2,706.39.”
Danny Kim, head of revenue at SFOX, a full-service crypto broker, said reports on an EIB digital bond issuance has “triggered a bullish institutional use case for ETH”.
He also cited the decline in the supply of Ethereum in the market, which has “jacked up its price.”
“The amount of ethereum sitting on exchanges continues to drop lower and has been the lowest in the past year,” Kim said.
He continued and said: “With less supply on exchange available, there’s less likely a chance of a major sell-off.”
