Singapore Dollar to Etherium - Convert Compare Save
The total cost you are charged by your foreign exchange provider consists of the margin from the mid-rate offered plus any fixed or percentage fees.
These margins and fees vary significantly for International Money Transfers and Travel Money transactions as shown below.
Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as exchange rates are the ratio between two currencies.
So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the SGD vs ETH, you should pay attention to the forecasts and trends for both Singapore Dollar and Etherium:
Singapore Dollar (SGD) outlook
A big-picture view shows SGD trading sideways against the pound since late 2016, now at S$1.763. SGD reached a 17-month high against the Malaysian ringgit in April, at RM3.073.
With core inflation at a 9-month low in the lead-up to this report and quarterly economic growth at a 2-year low, it’s likely that the Monetary Authority of Singapore will keep monetary policy unchanged when it next meets in October.
According to TradingEconomics.com, the Singapore dollar is likely to be worth S$1.37 per US dollar in 12 months’ time (April 2020).
2018 was the year that the cryptocurrency dream came crashing down. The bubble that many had suspected was building in 2017 was realised and ethereum went on to lose roughly 80 percent of its value. Ethereum ended the year at $136, having battled with major obstacles including regulatory crackdowns and social media advertising bans.
In the first 2 ½ months of 2019, ethereum at least held its value, trading between $100 and $170.
In 2019, on balance, press was still mostly negative on cryptocurrencies. This press included the bankruptcy in February of Canada’s largest crypto exchange, QuadrigaCX, and March’s decision by the CBOE (a major US derivatives exchange) to ditch bitcoin futures contracts amid declining interest.
Because the release of the CBOE’s futures contracts coincided with the crypto market top in December ’17–January ’18, superstitious folk said in March they were anticipating the emergence of a new bull market.
An Investment Week expert said in February that ethereum predictions were now “pointless.”
Why can't I just get the SGD/ETH market rate I see online or in the media?
The SGD/ETH mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news, nobody except the largest banks and businesses can get
exchange rates close to this mid-rate. It is actually just the theoretical half-way point (hence mid-rate) between
the last rate at which the SGD / ETH was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.
Getting a good market rate is mainly about timing however the transaction margin
you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for
travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money.
The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.
