Goldman Sachs Sees Ethereum Rallying by 80% Within the Next Two Months

Published

on

 

October saw the popular cryptocurrency Ethereum notch 40% in gains, and hit a market cap six times the size of the second-largest altcoin, Binance Coin. Now, analysts from Goldman Sachs are predicting that Ethereum could rally by 80% within the next two months to reach $8,000. Ethereum has far outperformed Bitcoin this year thanks to surging retail and institutional investor interest in the altcoin, which is causing companies to race to mine more of it as well. WonderFi Technologies (NEO:WNDR) (OTCPK:WONDF), is one of the blockchain companies growing its DeFi portfolio with Ethereum at the centre of its strategy. Other big names like Marathon Digital Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:MARA), Mobilum Technologies Inc. (CSE:MBLM) (OTCPK:MBLMF), HUT 8 Mining Corp. (NASDAQ:HUT), and DMG Blockchain (TSX-V:DMGI) (OTCQB:DMGGF) continue to move toward a decentralized finance future that includes Ethereum as one of the key cryptocurrencies.

WonderFi Technologies (NEO:WNDR) (OTC:WONDF) took a step toward opening up opportunities with its product offerings as it announced that it had established and deployed additional proof of stake (PoS) validator nodes on the Ethereum network. In total, WonderFi has 10 full Ethereum nodes. These validator nodes play a critical role in securing the network and validating transactions for blockchain protocols that use PoS consensus mechanisms. This is aimed at developing a more secure system for transactions and accuracy for the Ethereum network.

This will allow WonderFi Technologies to continue to grow its infrastructure. Another major benefit includes that 6% APY on staked assets that users can earn when staking Ethereum through a validator node. The announcement came at an ideal time, as Ethereum just reached an all-time high of US$4,507.

Earlier this week, WonderFi also announced it had received approval from its Board of Directors to purchase up to C$10 million in digital assets, which will be weighted across key assets that drive and enhance value in the DeFi sector. This is in line with WonderFi’s strategy of adding to its existing balance of long-term holdings.

This news follows the closing of a bought deal financing of approximately C$26.4 million led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. with the majority of the proceeds to go toward the product development roadmap and another portion allocated to growing WonderFi‘s digital asset portfolio.

FreeBnk, the fintech platform offering affordable financial services for crypto investors, launches its tokenized RWA (real-world asset) platform to enable its clients to invest in real estate through fractionalized ownership. Through FreeBnk’s app, clients can effortlessly purchase shares of the first property located in Dubai, democratizing real estate investing by eliminating traditional barriers such as complex paperwork, similar to the seamless experience of browsing and investing on Zillow. Investors of FreeBnk’s tokenized RWAs will receive a 15 percent annual return and a 9 percent rental return from their investment.

Tokenized RWAs have exploded in demand within the digital asset ecosystem, drawing interest from both crypto investors and traditional financial institutions. This sector has become one of the largest in DeFi, with DEX volume experiencing substantial growth from $2.3 billion in December 2024 to $3.6 billion by April 2024. Amidst the escalating global cost of living, tokenized RWAs emerge as an alternative and more accessible investment option offering potentially higher returns, democratizing access to market-proof assets. However, the UI and UX continue to be complex and unfriendly for users unfamiliar with these platforms.

With the launch of its new platform, FreeBnk simplifies wealth-building opportunities by offering ownership shares in properties for potentially generating passive income. Now live within its native mobile app, the decentralized application (dApp) removes the complexities of property ownership, enabling investors to readily enter the tokenized RWA sector. The process involves three straightforward steps:

Search properties: Through the FreeBnk app, users will be able to explore properties, filtering by type, ROI, and yield—allowing investors to align their property investments precisely with their financial objectives.
Buy shares: Users will be able to select their desired property and invest any amount in a few, simple steps. FreeBnk helps to bypass traditional real estate processes and manages all aspects of property ownership using smart contracts.
Earn rental income: FreeBnk automatically assigns a property portfolio to its customers, taking care of all real estate management responsibilities. This service includes collecting and depositing rental income directly into the client’s accounts.
Clients ready to capitalize on property appreciation can conveniently sell their shares at any time through FreeBnk’s secondary market. FreeBnk is committed to offering top-quality real estate, already investing over 250,000 AED into its first property. As a hub for innovation and growth, Dubai sets the stage for global expansion with its growing real estate market and investor-friendly environment.

“As we look ahead, we see the potential of tokenized RWAs and the positive ways in which they can revolutionize the real estate market through fractional ownership,” says Yunus Emre Ozkaya, CEO of FreeBnk. “By tokenizing properties, our goal is to empower investors across the globe, showcasing the unique benefits of tokenized RWAs and offering new avenues for investment. Real estate, known for its relative stability, provides a passive income opportunity amidst global economic fluctuations. We aim to cater not only to crypto enthusiasts but also to newcomers seeking alternative investment options.”
