A cryptocurrency trader has transformed a modest investment of $1,360 into over $2.3 million within five months by investing in a little-known Solana-based token. This remarkable feat was achieved by purchasing 12 SOL worth of PONKE, a meme-inspired cryptocurrency, in December 2023.

According to the on-chain analysis service Lookonchain, the trader acquired 5.21 million PONKE tokens on December 24, 2023. Holding onto these tokens has paid off handsomely, with the value of their holdings now standing at $2.32 million. This represents an astonishing gain of over 170,000%.

The surge in PONKE’s value coincides with a broader rally in the cryptocurrency market, which recently saw an addition of over $200 billion to its total market capitalization. However, the current market boost is driven by news of potential approval for spot Ether exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in the U.S. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has asked exchanges to update key filings related to these products, fueling speculation that approvals might be forthcoming.

The approval process for spot Ether ETFs requires issuers to receive clearance on their S-1 registration statements. However, the SEC has no set deadline for reviewing these filings. This development is particularly significant given the SEC’s intensified scrutiny of Ether, especially after Ethereum transitions to a Proof-of-Stake protocol.

Should Ether be classified as a security, the SEC could have grounds to deny applications for spot Ether ETFs. The ongoing investigation and regulatory considerations add a layer of complexity to the potential approval process.
