It is a 'negative' from me on very kind this offer to take away my rights to private bitcoin ownership by CBOE and the VanEcK SolidX Bitcoin Trust. 

What they are proposing is to take away my freedom and options in the long-term through gaining excessive control and power in the way they can shape the future of this cryptocurrency. 

George Washington, said this, “Private property and freedom are inseparable.” Are you free if you don’t have control over your private property? Along with that same vein, John Adams says “Property must be secured, or liberty cannot exist.” If your property can be taken from you at any point, you’re not free because you’re dependent upon the control other people and they control that property. What this and other ETF proposals are asking to do is just that. 

No thanks.....
