Secondary market-investors buy ETHE, the Grayscale product, representing a certain amount of the underlying ETH, an “implicit” price of 2.095 dollars. This value is about 45 percent above the ETH-all-time high of $ 1490 in January 2018.

Watkins is of the view that the high premiums of arbitrage create opportunities for discerning investors as they are able to create new shares on the primary market.

But the dislocation may not be permanent. The computer-based Arbitrage Trading, which is widely used in the US ETF markets, exclude quickly all price distortions, if enough people jumping on Board.

Simply put: Trader will begin to buy aggressively the underlying asset and immediately sell the broader Index for “risk-free” profits.

The example above makes this clear, and exact mechanisms of how arbitrageurs the advantages of the high-price environment can be explained in a relevant Messari-Blog-Post.
