ETH on exchanges declining 

Ethereum is currently hitting a shortage, as the crypto continues to see its supply being removed from exchanges. Glassnode recently reported that “Exchange ETH balances have now declined to reach an all-time low of 13% of the circulating supply this week, equivalent to 15.3M ETH.”
Notably, VanEck has also recently filed another ETF application with the U.S. SEC. The ETF is a futures-based Ethereum ETF, called the Ethereum Strategy ETF.
