Why Some Major Cryptocurrency Investors Are Betting Heavily Against Ethereum

July 26, 2018

 

Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency platform in the world, has seen its currency plummet 36% this year. But some major crypto investors think it has more room to fall, and they're betting aggressively against it. New York-based Tetras Capital, a crypto hedge fund that launched last summer and is known for in-depth analyses of cryptocurrency prices, has shorted ether, borrowing the coins and hoping they tank so it can buy them back at a lower price. Tetras started shorting ether in May 2018, when the price ranged from $572 to $659. Ether currently hovers around $470. Last week, Tetras published a 41-page report explaining its reasoning. Forbes estimates the six-person hedge fund has $30 million in assets under management. The ether short is one of its two high-conviction positions—the other is its bitcoin investment, says founding partner Alex Sunnarborg.  Ethereum (ETH) is the 2nd largest cryptocurrency by market cap size. It is down 0.19% over the past 24 hours and is currently trading at $476.19. It can be bought with fiat dollars, credit cards, or debit cards on cryptocurrency exchanges such as Coinbase, CEX.io, and Changelly.
