Ether, the native cryptocurrency of the Ethereum blockchain, has seen its price rise over the past 24 hours according to data from CoinMarketCap. This price increase comes despite the U.S. SEC delaying decisions on proposed Ether ETFs from companies like Hashdex and Grayscale. The broader cryptocurrency market rally, with Bitcoin surpassing $43,000, appears to be buoying Ether’s price.
