The letter highlights Ethereum is not classified as a security by the SEC or other regulatory bodies. Instead, it is considered a commodity, both before and after The Merge.

Analysts predict the SEC will approve spot Ethereum ETFs as early as May of this year. Last year, Grayscale and NYSE Arca applied to convert the Grayscale Ethereum trust fund into a spot Ethereum ETF.

With the approval of spot Ethereum ETFs, investors will be able to bet on the price of the second largest crypto without actually owning the asset.
