It was a critical day for Ethereum
As Cryptokoin.com has previously reported, ETH futures processes have been launched at CME today. According to some in the market, the launch of CME Ethereum futures was the driving force behind ETH’s all-time high rise from the price level of around $600 in December 2020. The reason behind the recent rally may also be the Ethereum futures work of CME Group.
