This price rally is happening amidst heightened anticipation for the potential approval of a spot Ether exchange-traded fund (ETF) by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which should be decided by May.

Senior ETF analyst at Bloomberg, Eric Balchunas, estimates the approval odds at 70%, highlighting a positive sentiment towards Ethereum.

The statement is echoed by Bernstein, a wealth management firm, which posits Ethereum as a prime candidate for ETF selection in the U.S. due to its staking yields, eco-friendly architecture, and broad institutional applicability.

Another factor that possibly impacted this surge is the upcoming Ethereum's Dencun upgrade, set to launch on March 13, which will significantly reduce fees in ETH-based Layer-2 networks.

This ascent past the $3K mark after almost two years revitalizes market sentiment and underscores the evolving landscape of cryptocurrency investment, regulatory engagement, and technological innovation.

In other news, the co-founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, has proposed to make Ethereum's Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism more efficient and user-friendly.
