Hello all,

I believe most of you are familiar with the Seasteading Institute.

For those who aren't, it's a project to build inhabitable sea platforms with the intend of funding new countries. You may know more by accessing their site or by watching this nice talk Patri Friedman gave in the first Brazilian Seminar of Austrian Economics, hold by the Brazilian Mises Institute.

IMHO, this is the most important project in existence for libertarians. If we could ever fund an independent city, based on libertarians principles, this would be simply amazing. Even if we don't manage to create a truly libertarian place due to other nation governments' threats, I think it's at least possible to create a place with more freedom than anywhere else in the world.

I've been trying to convince them to accept bitcoins donations. But I think that better than talking I should try to do something.

So I'm organizing a donation here. As soon as they start accepting them, I'll transfer all the funds to their addresses.

For those willing to contribute to this amazing project, please flip your coins to 194qHQhV1r48xoLu5vMP4A54ekdvGfcEGW

Thank you!

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

Bitcoins already have opinion valuing it. It's currently valued at .20 cents. They already gambled with it, spectulate on it, even brought pizza with it, and spend serious amount of money to mine for bitcoins, and so on. Plus, it already proven to be safer than paypal dollars.

I guess we're too radical, even for the seasteading community.  Cheesy

I have a very good and a bad news about this subject.

The good news is: The Seasteading Institute will accept bitcoin donations! Smiley
They send me their address by mail: 1FexWDptSXFWsZvdLoBckZgVFWytHjsSu8
I've asked them to add it to their donation page so you don't need to trust my word only.

The bad news is about the account I had opened in November in MyBitcoin to store the donations. It had received 50BTC from one donor. But that was a while ago, and I just cannot remember the password. Sad Yeah, I know, shame on me!
I tried creating another account in order to ask them help to recover this money. I sent them two messages but got no answer, and since a few days they have this message on their site:
Note: We are experiencing growing pains. Support will be degraded until we are able to upgrade our systems. Thank you for your patience.

I hope to be able to contact them once they are reachable again and recover these 50BTC. I apologize to whoever did that donation, I'm really sorry.

At least you are man enough to come here and be honest about it.

They don't have any "Forgot my password"-feature?

Did you at least register the account with an email you have access to now?

Hoping this is not a scam and they make it official, it'd be awesome. (I'd still wait for this to appear on the page before donating though)
