So what does this mean to us this year? It means that we actually have a very good relationship with a new card issuer. I can't tell you the name. We have a NDA [non-disclosure agreement] with them, so I am not allowed to announce the name, but we have a very good timeline with them, we have a very good relationship. I just met them in Europe, and we have regular meeting here in Singapore with them. They are a really large respected company. And the fantastic thing about this is that they really want to do it legit. They don't want to take any shortcuts. With Wave Crest it has always been a bit on the edge.

In particular, Fidelity Digital Assets will offer a transaction service that, using internal cross-connect and order routers, will trade through third-party liquidity providers.
