  • Ethereum saw a downturn despite strong beginnings. 
  • The postponement of ETH ETFs by the SEC sparked mixed reactions within the crypto community. 

After a strong kickoff on the first day of Q3 of 2024, Ethereum [ETH] has flipped back to a bearish trend once again. As reported by CoinMarketCap, ETH, at press time, dropped by 1.11% over the last 24 hours.

Needless to say, this news was not received well by the community, who echoed a sentiment similar to ETF Store president Nate Geraci

“It shouldn’t take this long.”

@StrongHedge best put it when he said, 

“Only a few days until $ETH ETF kicks in. Stop looking at $BTC, start looking at $ETH.”
