An unknown cryptocurrency investor has recently paid a hefty premium on the price of Ethereum’s ether to gain exposure to the cryptocurrency, as data suggests he or she paid over $5,200 per ether when the cryptocurrency is trading at about $300.
As CryptoGlobe covered the Grayscale Ethereum Trust (ETHE) launched on over-the-counter (OTC) markets earlier this month, allowing retail investors to buy ETHE shares and gain exposure to the cryptocurrency ecosystem through it.
