If I had to count the number of times the news disagreed with me I would still be counting. I would have sold all of my bitcoins in 2011 when it was officially declared dead the first time (https://99bitcoins.com/bitcoinobituaries/).
Perhaps I should start a Floating Island Project obituary page to begin collecting all of these “the project is dead!” (Peter Thiel’s project is dead!) articles.
Hmm, two articles referring to a Facebook post by the mayor of a small town declaring that he never signed a contract.
Doesn’t seem fishy to you at all? Like perhaps he is running for mayor in May and his rival was trying to create an issue saying that he signed away their city to some billionaires in silicon valley? So he goes online and says he never signed a contract. That was one mayor at one of 10 sites the project is looking at possibly locating.
No, the project is most certainly not dead. The funding begins the day of elections when the same party will continue to hold power. We are evaluating sites, preparing logistics, to hit the ground running for after the token sale and when the SEZ legislation is passed.
