Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) has rallied more than 35% over the last month. The recent move is more fundamentally driven than speculative, Slow Ventures’ Jill Gunter said Tuesday on CNBC’s “Squawk On The Street.”

The phenomenon is very real as people gain a sense of social identity and belonging through said purchases, Gunter noted.
