I am sure Elwar paid more than that for his seastead.

The truly ridiculous thing about the whole affair is that as far as I know he didn't own it or build it. All he was doing was occupying it.

It looked sodding horrendous to me but I guess the idea will keep your cockles warm when 900 metre waves are battering you for months end.

He’s obviously very, very wealthy. I could think of a fuck loads of places I’d prefer to live if I had that kind of money. It looked horrible tbh!

Whatever floats your boat though I guess (no pun intended).

It is frustrating waiting isn’t it my friend. We could be sitting on absolute gold mines but most of us have to wait for the price to increase fairly significantly to realise those riches.

It’s frustrating working, kissing ass at work & continuing about your daily business when in a few years we can probably all say ‘fuck you’ & walk out.

Nothing comes easily so patience it is. One day brother, one day.

Ugg.. so feeling this... 

Made doubly so, since upper management around here has seemingly recently adopted the attitude of "the beatings will continue till moral improves" .. 

63... that's my number.. 63K...  the day it hits 63K, I put in my notice....

hookers and blow will, unfortunately, have to wait for an order of magnitude above that...  Sad



Just make sure you don’t sell everything at 63k. Whatever you continue to HODL can act as a pension pot when you’re old & wrinkly. State & bank pensions fucking suck any way.

I don’t even know what 1 bitcoin will be worth when I’m retirement age but I’d be willing to bet it’ll be a fuck load more than if I put £200 a month into a shitty bank based pension.

No worries there my friend...  I've got a spreadsheet already worked up with sell point intervals all the way from here till $1MM (and I'll still have a small stash even at that point) ..  63K is just the point where I've sold enough that I can reallocate the proceeds into a diverse portfolio and be able to live comfortably off of a 4% withdraw rate...  

At this point, the plan is set... The plan was created back when there was no hype or FOMO happening, so I've pretty much taken emotions out of the picture..  Fortunately, I'm one of those personalities that I can follow the plan, and have no regrets later about "what if I'd have just...."  

I can't advocate this method enough... Figure everything out now, and just sit back, relax and go on autopilot..  Also, read the WO thread to keep up to date, and for entertainment value...  this got me through the 2017 bubble without losing my mind, it should work again Smiley

I very much doubt it.  I have been watching the whole process and they were admirably frugal right along.  They used local labor, welded up the spar out in the open, not even in a shop.  Dragged it around with whatever they could scrounge up.

Elwar is NOT profligate with his money, they shopped around for their little boat for some time, and ended up buying a fixxer upper.

I would be quite surprised if there was more than $120K into the prototype all inclusive.

If i recall, i think Elwar wrote somewhere that he and his girlfriend did not fund it, just agreed to live on it for a brief time. Also I think I remember him saying 130k was raised for it, but I dont know if that was all of it or just partial funding. My memory could be off on these and Im not sure if it was a WO post or an article.

I remember reading that the bare bones model was only about $40k, but after adding in the generator, solar panels and desalinization doohickey, the price easily doubled. Plus another $20k if you want amenities like a kitchen and satellite internet. The seastead itself is quite affordable but everything that makes it worth living in sounds quite expensive. Not to mention travel costs.

I don't know why would anybody risk his life to build a "seastead" while you can buy one of these:
BAVARIA C57





The interior is huge. There are people who actually live on these boats. Life is too short to risk it against dumb/corrupt governments. He already has the money to buy even a bigger boat than this and can live with his girlfriend without worrying about anything.

exactly my thinking.

if BTC hits 50k this year I'm going to buy this exact boat and name her "Hodl & Pump"

actually this coinbase/poloniex info-selling thing is getting seriously mysterious with 2 members confirming
witaf  Huh

I'm not sure if you've noticed but the




^^^--- don't care about such things.

Thats why stories like the one Hairy linked just die but everyone knows what retarded thing a Kardashian said.


Old news.  Just everyone has forgotten because Coinbase scandals are so regular.

They forget it because they just don't care, the world is full of pop culture mush minds and it just gets worse everyday.

On a side note until I googled that image I had no clue what they looked like.

Please tell me that was an empty paper wallet and you did not just post a private key.

Of course it's empty, thank you for your concern.

Btw I was actually contemplating on throwing in a few sats just to see what/when/who maybe.
I had a couple more drinks instead. Cool

Did Fudsters run out of Fud?

Remember in 14 and 15 when US Marshals would announce a Silk Road Bitcoin auction every time we had a strong rally.

No more auctions.

China Bans dont work anymore.

Chinese Miners cant block Segwit anymore.

Big Blockers already forked themselves into irrelevance and shame.

Craig Wright Fud isnt moving the market anymore.

Bitcoin uses all the electricity in the galaxy doesnt work anymore.


What will Fudsters do now?Huh?


Is this the end of FUD?

100k soon  Cheesy ??


Add this ... Mt. Gox coins no longer held over our heads like an axe.

Fud will show up after the first major dump by the institutions and they will be coordinated just like 2019 with seized BTC to help them along. But if we can absorb that ammo then they will be in for a rude awakening. Of course then they will get newly printed fiat to accumulate for another shot at it but at least that takes time.

You don't want to be in that when the swells are up there and with that you cannot build your own Coral reef and work toward self sustainability not to mention the upkeep on that will be prohibitive very quickly in that location.

True, I believe the main objective was to make it cost effective for the average American so the line was probably around 100K and he posted a bare minimum spar price of 35 or 40k IIRC. Don't quote me on that <<--shit my memory sucks.
