We haven't said anything regarding Ether – up to this point. It is my view as chairperson of the CFTC that Ether is an item, and along these lines, it will be managed under the CEA. What's more, I conjecture that you will see, sooner rather than later, Ether-related fates contracts and different subordinates conceivably exchanged.
