Mini-VIX Futures Coming on March 2nd

The CBOE is out with a press release confirming that mini-VIX futures will begin trading next Monday.

The mini-VIX is 1/10 the size of the standard VIX futures contract, making the mini-VIX much more approachable for the typical retail investor.

does anyone know if trading in these contracts will effect the larger vix contracts as far as liquidity is concerned?
