I'm setting up my own BTCPay server for payments from people buying seasteads.

It's actually not too difficult if you go the LunaNode route (An ISP has integrated all of the packages for you with an easy to use configuration page).

So that took me a few hours this morning (Originally I was setting everything up on my computer but decided, screw it...I'll take the easy route).

On the other side...accepting dollars is a pain in the ass. To do this we had to incorporate. This involved finding a country that won't tax us to death for not doing anything in their country. We had to meet in person and show proof to the lawyers. Pay them thousands of dollars (my LunaNode cost $20). Air fare, hotel, etc.

Now we will be setting up our Singapore bank account which will likely require another flight and hotels. Then the huge hassle of accepting credit cards or PayPal (for the earnest money downpayment) which we get to pay them for the convenience.

At some point, in the likely not too distant future, we will probably just say screw it...if you want a seastead you convert to bitcoins and join the sane people who use a sane money.

As a special tribute to the dollar, we're doing our Initial Seastead Offering (ISeaO) on April 15th.

Protest the income tax by putting your 1% downpayment on buying a seastead.

Meantime it looks like we're snug in the 5200-5300 range. Not a bad improvement from the 2800-3000 range a few weeks ago.

Progress. But does it mean BC is worth more, or fiat is simply worth less?

Since you're already active in that area, would you mind answering a few questions regarding seasteading for me? The responses can be however brief since this won't be immediately relevant for quite a number of years to me, but I'd like to sketch out some future options regardless.


Is it plausible to create a small seasteading property on which you could have some sort of outdoor space, or at least indoor garden or small park?

Perhaps an inner courtyard type setup with or without a roof that may or may not be opened and closed?

Is it possible to get a per square meter cost estimate (excluding inventory)?

How do you go about acquiring "sea" (land/property) for something like this? Surely you can't just set up whatever arbitrarily?

Is this possible in areas where you don't have to worry about pirates or rely on guns? (I don't have a problem with guns, but I'd prefer it being an option as opposed to a necessity if that makes sense.)


Meantime it looks like we're snug in the 5200-5300 range. Not a bad improvement from the 2800-3000 range a few weeks ago.

Maybe you can have 2 or 3 seastead apart from the set of owners, just to rent.
On a platform like airbnb, it may be another form of profitable, probably always have reservations.

Would be very good, bit of a try out of the seasteading life, I think the idea is awesome...
Also very possible this could be attractive for people, but it will take timebas many of the good idea's of today.

Keep us updated please and enjoy your adventure/life work...

I just had a group come out here last week to visit the seastead. One of them wants to do exactly that.

He wants to set up a SeaBnB on a few of these and get about 10 people to go in on one to split the cost/profit. He's figuring a 65% occupancy rate over 3 years pays for itself.

The configuration would be just a bed and bathroom instead of the standard which comes with a kitchen.

We also have a big investor that wants to set up an underwater restaurant. People visiting the restaurant will want a place to stay the night. We're figuring a capacity of 40 high end customers.

Hopefully, I’m feeling really positive about the recent price action. I think anybody predicting that the bottom isn’t in yet is an idiot. There’s so much positivity around at the moment, I see nothing but bullish action for the forseeable future.

Thats true, but with BTC its always something special, during the bearmarket so much positive stuff and still it kept on dumping their.... the news becomes more and more irrelevant for the price action, still I enjoy positive stuff much more as negative Smiley
I like to see the user count keeps increasing over time, that Will be the most important thing of all....
More and more people Will get it and understand it and finally buy it, of-course there or those where it takes more time as with others, so consider us to be lucky ones Wink

Is it plausible to create a small seasteading property on which you could have some sort of outdoor space, or at least indoor garden or small park?

Small is easy. We're selling our DIY seasteads for $45k. This includes just a spar and a 7 meter wide steel plate that you can then customize as you wish.

Quote
Perhaps an inner courtyard type setup with or without a roof that may or may not be opened and closed?

When thinking of seasteading start thinking in terms of boats instead of vast lands. The more open/empty space, the more the price.

Quote
Is it possible to get a per square meter cost estimate (excluding inventory)?

Excluding everything, that barebones DIY will cost you about $108/sqft or $1169/sqm. You may consider that your "land" price. On top of that we build a fully self reliant home with solar electricity and fresh water (which brings the price up considerably).

Quote
How do you go about acquiring "sea" (land/property) for something like this? Surely you can't just set up whatever arbitrarily?

We set up whatever, arbitrarily.

As long as it's over 12nm out we can put our seasteads there. But that comes with big waves which requires engineering to keep you above the waves.

Quote
Is this possible in areas where you don't have to worry about pirates or rely on guns? (I don't have a problem with guns, but I'd prefer it being an option as opposed to a necessity if that makes sense.)
While we do not plan on building off of the coast of Somalia where there are pirates...
A pirate is defined as theft on the sea. If you're trying to find a place in the world where there are no thieves...good luck! Being a long boat ride where everyone can see you coming for miles is probably discouraging to most thieves. Also, us pulling up the ladder is likely better than a gun.

At least we're not robbed at least 30% of our salaries every paycheck living on the ocean.

Fucking IRS.

Got our final numbers from the accountant, and this is the first time, in a long time, that my is bill way higher than Ricks, owing to setting up my early retirement fund by selling off the BTC I did during the dying gasps of the bulls being devoured by the bears in late 2017/early 2018.

Rick suggested he would contribute $x towards my obligations, in exchange for $y Bitcorns. Think I'm going to take him up on the offer to preserve part of my cash stash, and cover my Q1 estimated taxes instead with the leftover liquidity, and put the rest back into a fund, somewhere.

At least this way, Bitcorn stays in the family, and would help towards his retirement plans if we have a couple more months of green dildos.

Also, today marks two weeks of being officially dry. I'm genuinely beginning to enjoy the clarity. feelsgoodman.
