$300,000 Investment in Ethereum (ETH) Becomes $1.376 Million in 4 Months
According to Gene Simmons, he bought the $300 Ethereum (ETH) 4 months ago, which makes the actual date of the purchase possibly 13th October 2021. Back then, the digital currency was trading around $394.
At the time of writing, Ethereum (ETH) is trading at $1,808, indicating that his investment 4 months ago has gained 4.59 times more.
So, Simmon’s initial purchase is now valued at $1.376 Million with the potential to keep surging towards higher highs, considering the current bullish moment of Ethereum (ETH), the second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization.
Ethereum Reclaims $1,800 and Could Test $2k
With respect to price, Ethereum is once again trading above the important $1,800 zone that is key to ETH posting a new all-time high closer to the highly anticipated $2k ceiling.
The weekly close is a few hours away and the cryptocurrency could very well remain bullish above this level as the new week kicks in.
Another thing that is worthy of note is that Grayscale has been scooping up a lot of Ethereum since the year began and the momentum could be maintained going forward.
This in turn means that Ethereum (ETH) could keep surging to new price highs fueled by institutional interest through Grayscale and the CME Ethereum futures contracts.
