For decades architects and futurists have dreamed of seasteading, a way of living in floating, green-tech cities on the high seas. Now, thanks to the help of a cryptocurrency, the world’s first pilot project is underway.
The Seasteading Cryptocurrency
A group of academics, investors, and philanthropists are launching a cryptocurrency to help fund the construction of 300 homes on an artificial island in French Polynesia. Inhabitants of the project will test the feasibility of seasteading while living in an isolated community run on the cryptocurrency Varyon.
