are you guys going to need a chef? my wife is a professional chef with experience preparing food for very large groups of people. not just cafeteria food either, her background is in preparing fine food for wealthy people.  Grin

The beauty of having a ship in International waters is that you can hire international workers that will work for less than minimum wage and be making much more than they would have back home.

I offered my services with setting up the computers and network but realized that likely they will likely hire several foreigners that will get paid what I would be asking. Part of the reason I do not offer my services on freelancer.

Hello again everyone!

With apologies for the absence, and with promises of answering all the intervening questions,
it is my pleasure to present the Blueseed talk from the Bitcoin 2013 conference, complete with slides and subtitles.

I've been learning about ships lately.  I'd guess that the reason that this project has been advised to troll around in a figure-8 pattern is that the ship needs to be moving in order for the stabilizers to work.

Have a look at the Nauti-Craft Marine Suspension Systems ferry. Here's a cool video; the comparison with the monohull at 2:05 is awesome.

Now think about what happens when you put a couple dozen of these on the bottom of a large stationary platform, and make the resistance provided by each one variable and computer-controlled.

Looks like someone had a better idea:

I wrote a very long, detailed post on this but it got erased so I will just retype the important points:



This project should have conducted an ECONOMIC FEASABILITY study before anything. This project screams negligent at best, scam at worst.

Realistically a project like would cost between $20 and $80 million. It basically appears to me you are pocketing people's donation money knowing full well this project will never produce any results.

Your Indeigogo campaign raises $20,000 for an engineering study. Again, why wouldn't you do an economic feasibility study first? Who is the engineer? Again, more donation money going into private pockets under the ruse of this project being realistic and the lie it would ever being realized.

Your BlueSeed website looks like it was made in 5 minutes, honestly. You FAQ addresses mundane and arbitrary topics, and ignores anything relevant and important.
Visas? Internet connection? Give me a break!



It's obvious this is a money grab for naive Bitcoiners money.

UPDATE: I read some more. It seems you have gone from your own ship, to chartering a cruise ship. This is unrealistic. Now what I read centers around bleeding overseas tech companies money, renting them a room on the cruise ship, based on the fact they couldn't get a visa and come to the mainland! What a crock!

Thank you! Someone with a brain.
