Grayscale Ethereum Trust Trading at a Premium
According to Grayscale, one share of their Ethereum trust is allocated 0.09276525 ETH. Doing the math, this corresponds to a value of $54 given Ethereum’s current price of $585. This means the Grayscale Ethereum Trust’s current share price is 2.7x more than the value of 0.09276525 ETH allocated per share and could very much be the first indicator of a possible correction for ETHE.
Conversely, it could indicate that the real Ethereum is very much undervalued and the ETHE premium rate is foreshadowing a rally for Ethereum (ETH) above its all-time high of $1,400. However, this is pure speculation and should not be considered investment advice.
