The Ethereum ETF (exchange-traded fund) market has more potential than that for spot Bitcoin ETF investment vehicles because the ETH network also offers staking rewards.

That’s according to Pranav Kanade, a portfolio manager with fund management giant VanEck.

“The world of investors who are looking for cash-producing assets is massive and ETH obviously generates fees that goes to the token holders,” Kanade told CoinDesk. “Even if you don’t have an ETF that can offer staking as a part of it, it’s still a cash-producing asset, so I think ETH could make more sense as an asset to more people than Bitcoin does.”

Ethereum ETF Viability Questioned

Kanade’s prediction comes amid speculation that Ethereum ETFs will not allow staking rewards to be distributed to ETF investors.

The portfolio manager acknowledged this potential shortcoming, but said that Ethereum ETFs are “still a cash producing asset” regardless of whether they pay out staking rewards to investors directly.

This could be “massive” for “investors who are looking for cash producing assets,” he said.

Spot Bitcoin ETF Activity Spikes Again

The ten spot Bitcoin ETFs that launched in the US have already recorded $10 billion inflows in just two months. Trading volumes for these investment products have also surged.

The collective volumes of the US spot Bitcoin ETFs have this month already surpassed figures recorded in January and February, according to Bloomberg ETF analyst Eric Balchunas.

Meanwhile, VanEck’s spot Bitcoin ETF, HODL, saw its trading activity jump to $258 million after it announced it would reduce all sponsor fees to zero for the first $1.5 billion invested in its ETF.
