Summary (IA Generated)

The price of Ether (ETH) is surging past $2,000 with strong momentum while gaining a bit of ground on Bitcoin (BTC) in the last 24 hours.

There are three key reasons behind the explosive rally of Ether, namely the rapid growth of DeFi, the hype around ETH after the CME futures listing, and the decreasing amount of BTC and ETH on exchanges.

Ether hitting $2,000 for the first time ever follows the launch of CME ETH futures earlier this month, which primarily target institutional investors.

Prior to the listing, there was a popular narrative that the CME listing would cause the price of ETH to decline significantly, because the CME Bitcoin futures listing in 2017 coincided with the local BTC top at the time.

However, ETH has continuously rallied since, breaking past its all-time high and surpassing $2,000 on Feb.

com, the total value locked (TVL) of the DeFi market is almost $50 billion.

ETH directly benefits from the high TVL of the DeFi market because ETH is used as a means to pay transaction fees on the Ethereum blockchain network.

BTC and ETH reserves continue falling on exchanges .

In addition, as long as the price of Bitcoin continues to demonstrate resilience above $50,000, the strong momentum of ETH would likely be sustained in the foreseeable future.

When the price of ETH surpassed $2,000, 33% of all crypto discussions were related to ETH.

‘.

If the momentum of the dominant cryptocurrency in Bitcoin remains intact and investors keep pulling ETH from exchanges, the probability of Ether continuing its rally past the $2,000 level is likely to increase.
