No it’s not. A $15 Mil (initial) investment goes way beyond “a proof of concept”. It’s just a high risk venture without a real proof of concept. For a seasteading proof of concept $100k investment would have suffice.
It depends how they build the seastead. It should be design and built with offshore capabilities, in my opinion. If things turn sour in Bora Bora, time to sail away.
No. There is no more research needed. We are not trying to go to Mars,… All the technology and the “know how” to go seasteading is already here, in the marine industry.
Please note that it was a business decision on the part of Blue Frontiers to go to Bora Bora. Nothing more, nothing less.
$15 Mil could easily build a 300’ LOA offsore capable seastead, population 100-150.
Just turn the excess energy into hydrogen and sell it…
True, because seasteading is high risk investment. But seasteading can also generate a hefty ROI, IF DONE RIGHT, as a business.
We just have to separate SEASTEADING AS A BUSINESS from THE BUSINESS OF SEASTEADING. Two very different things.
