Ethereum is a centralized security by definition of the SEC and controlled by a few that pose a risk to US National Security. The founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, is a Russian born programmer who is known to have publicly met with Vladimir Putin in 2017 and still might have ties to Putin and Russian oligarchs. If Ethereum is allowed an ETF, then that sets a precedent for any cryptocurrency to have an ETF which will flood the financial markets with scams and ponzi-like schemes. Every cryptocurrency is a copy and modification to Bitcoin and is not a new or separate financial instrument nor unique internet protocol. Similar to livestock commodities with the only difference is it is easy to copy in our new digital world (humans cannot copy and make a better cow, pork, oil or gold). Please keep the integrity of our US financial markets. Sincerely, Jeffrey Rade
