for me, one aspect of a seastead is the isolation from supplies. living in the boonies i tend to have everything needed to survive for several weeks with absolutely no dependencies on the outside world. well within some practical limits. so i would have backups (sometimes several) of all critical infrastructure, tools and parts to repair most things along with a small machine shop, above average medical supplies, and overkill on monitoring equipment for environment and systems status. like, lots of stuff like that. i live in the boonies, and ive learned that if you dont have it with you, you dont have it period. simple enough thing but when the stores are a dozen miles or more away in rough seas for unknown period of time thats the same thing. so any seastead i design will be pretty big. living quarters would be a small part of it. command and control will be as redundant and as state of the art as i can make it, after all, when you get down to it this is a sea going vessel that my life will depend on. so costly for the specs that i am comfortable with, which are admittedly above specs a typical seasteader may have.

dont get me wrong, the isolation and self sufficiency is a good thing for me, but a lot of planning goes into that. its not just the base platform which worries me, you guys seems to have those problems licked. its the rest of it that i worry about. ive learned to only trust critical infrastructure that either i design and build, or is so well proven i can adapt off the shelf items for my use. i have no intention of getting into some life threaten situation that i could have avoided because i skimped on kit loadout.

We're about 20 minutes to the closest restaurant by speed boat. 30 minutes and a ride through traffic to the nearest hospital. Where I lived before it was usually an hour drive in traffic to the main shopping area so you just go a few times a week or less.

Though I am in the process of buying a small sail boat. It has an engine and I'll add an outboard for redundancy. Plus the sail. So a liesurely ride into town could take an hour or so.

under ideal conditions sure. im thinking of worst case. im not really a pessimistic type but when it comes to survival, i plan for pretty bad conditions. and some of those plans have paid off big time. a tornado in town and a freak snowstorm that caused a 7 day multi state wide power failure affecting most of those states population on the east coast and that made many roads impassible for days (even with a pretty serious 4wd with mods), most fuel stations inoperable (no power to run the pumps), pharmacies having problems keeping meds in stock (statewide travel bans on some highways), stores running out of food and lots of the refrigerated stock they did have going bad because no power, plus limited resupply made me glad i had a weeks worth of fuel for my genset thats capable of running most of the house (just the electric stove and electric cloths dryer is excluded) and a transfer switch to do it right and make it wife safe, food for a month with several cooking sources with different fuels, lots of stocked up batteries, extra meds, tools supplies and equipment to fix the genset etc. not all of it was needed but i slept well knowing the wife and i were good. but it sucked big time for many, and especially hard for those with electric powered medical equipment. most of the unprepared just had no fuel, no heat source and no food, pretty big inconveniences. 

and thats on land. storms and their duration are unpredictable. how big is that boat anyway?

a seastead of course will have different failure modes, but there will be failures and they will happen a the worst times, like when you cant get to land with what youve got.

Thanks for the share kenzawak.

You know, now that I think about it, universality is also a good real word use of BTC.

Rather than paying your bank everytime you want to get money in another country than your home region you can simply pay in BTC! Or at least use BTC ATM.

I remember that visiting Hungary I paid about 8% of fees jsut to change from euro to Florint. Because you had first to cash out (5% fee) then to convert (3% fee).

So using BTC in this situation is actually pretty nice!

Exactly, it's a step towards adoption.
Maybe one day, we'll be able to withdraw cash anywhere in the world thanks to Bitcoin ATMs.
In this one, the fee was about 3%. I'll check on a few others to compare while I'm here.

Visiting Hong Kong.
There are about 30 ATMs here and a few places where you can pay in BTC.
Here in Kowloon, on Chatham Rd.

You're absolutely right. Here in the Philippines the ability to convert money is a pretty big deal because the country's #1 source of income is money brought in from overseas workers. When I first landed in Manila I went straight to a bitcoin ATM in the "posh" neighborhood and cashed out some pesos. Because it took 15 minutes to confirm, the security guard at the hotel the machine was in thought I was an idiot and told me I should just go to a regular bank. And he's right, I am an idiot, but for other reasons.

I'm starting to get the fear.

Looking into my crystal ball, I see 2019 filled with nothing but continued languid misery.

Good!

I'm glad so many people are bearish!

I tried another address tonight, one that I found on coinmap. It turned out to be an outcall massage and I'm pretty sure they don't stop at the "regular massage".

All I've been asking for is that the principles of logic, reason, and mathematics are adhered to. Which is fully consistent with 'the negative has not been proven'.

You really don't though.

Yes. I do.

Quote
You force feed your opinion down peoples' throats by insinuating that if they don't agree with them they must be intellectually inferior.

Bullshit. If my posts make you feel intellectually inferior, then that's on you. I may have demeaned you personally once or twice, but that would only have been replying in kind to insult you were hurling.

Quote
And incredibly, you're wrong far more often than right. Do you use the same principles when making your spectacularly wrong predictions about BCH and SV price movement?

I can admit those were bad calls. Financially. So far. But from a technical perspective.... I anticipate the market will come around to the superior solution. Admittedly, becoming less sure of this as time goes on. What's the saying? Oh yeah. The market can stay irrational longer than you can stay solvent.
