Ethereum looks strong and is trading at $245 at the time of writing. After a quick dip today, bulls managed to buy it back and create a bullish reversal candlestick. ETH/USD is in a daily uptrend and only facing two major resistance levels at $247.14 and the high set on June 2 at $253.47.

Grayscale’s Ethereum Trust fund showing increasing institutional interest in ETH

The Grayscale Trust fund has been buying Ethereum throughout 2020 and it’s now showing a 679% year-to-date return. 

According to an official report, Grayscale bought 50% of all Ethereum mined until April 24, 2020. The company has continued buying ETH at a slower rate and investors have been buying ETH even at a 725% premium. While this number looks huge, it’s not even close to its highest point of 1,300% around a year ago. 

Investors willing to buy Ethereum at such a high value is a great indicator of Ethereum’s long term outlook. Additionally, Ethereum’s top whales have also increased their holdings during May 2020.
