Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock Inc., the world’s largest asset manager, is making significant strides in the cryptocurrency market. Initially focusing on Bitcoin, Fink is now turning his attention to Ethereum.

In a recent appearance on CNBC, Fink discussed BlackRock’s focus on infrastructure, which he described as a “macro trend.” He also addressed the company’s investments in the cryptocurrency market and the recently approved Bitcoin spot ETF with its redemption model. However, the highlight of the discussion was Fink’s prediction of an Ethereum spot ETF approval, which he believes is likely to occur.

Fink stated, “I see value in having an Ethereum ETF. As I said, these are just stepping stones towards tokenization. I do believe this is where we will be going. We have the technology to tokenize today. (…) This eliminates all corruption by having a tokenized system.”

Travis Kling commented on BlackRock’s ability to drive the Bitcoin ETF narrative and believes the market is about to witness a similar push towards the Ethereum ETF, led by Fink. Ethereum’s price already reflects these optimistic expectations, breaking from a yearly downtrend against Bitcoin, up 26% in 3 days. At the time of writing, ETH is valued at 0.0607 BTC or $2,660 per token.

Other cryptocurrencies have mirrored this reaction, driving Bitcoin’s market cap dominance to yearly lows and fuelling altcoins’ rallies for trending projects. BlackRock’s new focus on Ethereum and tokenization aligns with the company’s infrastructure investment strategy. In the crypto realm, ETH is the leading Web3 infrastructure, home to hundreds of other projects and apps.

Despite this, Fink declined to comment further on a possible Ethereum ETF approval by Gary Gensler and the SEC. However, the market should anticipate this narrative to dominate in the coming months if the pattern repeats. An increased interest in Ethereum could positively impact the demand and value of the native token ETH and its price.
