CEO of BlackRock supported the approval of Ethereum-ETF

BlackRock CEO Laurence Fink supported the approval of the Ethereum ETF.
"ETFs are step one in the technological revolution in the financial markets," he said. "Step two is going to be the tokenization of every financial asset."
Previously, the CEO of BlackRock stated that tokenization will become the next global trend in the field of crypto assets.
He urged not to evaluate cryptocurrencies exclusively as a means of mutual settlements. In his opinion, this is a whole class of assets, the payload of which is not limited to paying for products and services.
​BlackRock has already applied with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to create a spot Ethereum ETF. The company was joined by Fidelity Investments, Invesco Galaxy, and Grayscale Investments.

Our investment strategy involves providing deep liquidity crypto market making to the projects we invest in. This approach allows us to ensure continuous and substantial liquidity in exchanges. By doing so, we aim to increase market efficiency and reduce price volatility. We help to stabilize prices and reduce the bid-ask spread, which can lower transaction costs for traders. This usually attracts more traders to the markets, by making it easier and less risky to trade your token which can help to increase the overall liquidity and trading volumes both for the benefit of traders and issuers. However, we recognize that providing liquidity also comes with potential risks, which we carefully evaluate and manage as part of our investment decision-making process.
