IRAs and 401ks Purchased Over One Million ETH at an $800 Premium

By Rajat Gaur

There are premiums and then there’s Grayscale’s Ethereum Trust (ETHE) where 0.09427052 eth is projected for $95.25. As we loop onto the same market the same price is available for just $18.18, translating with the current pricing of around $200 per eth.

While Ethereum is floating near $1,000 per coin, the highest premium has ever witnessed was in 2015.

According to the graphs created by the experts, there are around 13,255,400 of the shares till April 24, 2020 with 5,230,200 of them outstanding as of December 31, 2019. This concludes that over 8,025,200 shares have been bought, translating to 756,539 eth since December 31,2019.

As in the graph it has been seen that this year projects $143 for 1/10th of an eth, which means eth is at the spot all time high of $1,400.

It has been reported that Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) has given the amount with the only reason as there is a complete detachment and the users can easily buy Ethereum from IRA or 401k portfolio.

These are considered as pension portfolios. The IRA is the personal pension portfolio whereas 401ks are provided by employees who are contributing to the pension with the biggest perk with gain of zero capital through these plans.

There is no other way out to buy Ethereum through your pension. It is even not possible to buy shares and stock ISAs and mechanism save for Ethereum and for Europeans the eth ETNs trading in Stockholm.

Americans have got access to ETNs, but there are protectionist regulatory measures that make it quite a bit more complicated. Leading to the distorted demand for eth in part, on the other hand supply is also distorted with this getting around the usual rules by requiring the share is held for a year before it can be sold off.
