    The ether pre-sale has ended and there will be no further ether pre-sale, ever. However, the go live date is March 2015 at which point exchanges might decide to list ether, however we have control over this.

    In the meantime do not buy ether from anyone - the reason being, they can keep their private key without telling you, and on the golive date, redeem and sweep the ether leaving you with nothing. It’s therefore not possible to sell or buy ether safely until genesis.

    IMHO the valuation of the asset you describe is irrelevant - it's a future, unrelated to us, on a centralized system that you have to put your trust into. It's operated by anonymous people, even though rumors abound. I'd give this a wide berth if I were you.

    Hi Stephan,
    Does this mean you discourage a post-genesis ETH market?
    I understand the concerns about a centralised exchange, but wouldn't ethereum be a great platform for a de-centralised exchange?
