Congratulations to the Ocean Builders team!

It is definitely not the first seastead ever built, but it is probably the first one to accept bitcoin. However, how much business your team is expecting in the first year of operation, I mean I am just trying to understand the business forecast!

Seasteading is actually a good concept though there are always many challenges any project on this line should be winning over with. This can be a good way for some people to live a different environment just above the sea and now we already have many necessary technologies that can make things possible with seasteading. Though there are also many limitations that the project should be dealing with. I am sure that this can be attracting many supporters and attention from the media -- in fact this can be a very good tourist attraction.

Whats the costs of living here and the price of weekly utilities? I'm guessing you're using distillation for clean water but what are you doing for electricity? I think there's a lot to romanticism about seasteading but would be interested in earning some testimonials from those that are actually living there.

...  

There have been created many projects that utilise wave energy and transform it into electricity - it is possible that something similar has been applied here - in addition we have solar panels - I hope that they did not use an oil generator there ;-)

however, they finished on solar panels - what a pity ...

"The platform is the living space, sitting several meters above the water. It is a six meter wide octagon shape with two floors. The bottom floor with a kitchen, bathroom, eating area and bedroom. The top floor is an open deck area covered by a solar panel frame which will create electricity for the seastead. The plan is to sell these seasteads at a price lower than the average single family home."

I wonder how's the experience of living 'alone' on the sea. Do they also have internet access there?
At first, I thought the people who live in seasted use Bitcoin, but it seems the company itself is the one who accepts bitcoin for selling this seasted.

however, they finished on solar panels - what a pity ...

Will maintenance becomes difficult if they use solar panels? I always thought solar panel is cool.

Accepting bitcoin payments for a seasted is a weird idea.This technology is still very expensive and I wonder what kind of person would want to spend most of his bitcoins for such thing.Seasteds have great potential,but there's room for improvement.

Wow, these people are very brave pioneers indeed, because I do not know if I would be able to sleep like a baby, not knowing if a boat may come crashing into my "house" in the middle of the night. How do they make themselves visible at night or when there are foggy conditions?  

Tsunami's should not be a big concern, because this is in much deeper water, but I will still have some concerns when there are stormy conditions.

This might be the start of a real "Waterworld" <1995 Science fiction film>

This is a weird but cool idea... I just wonder what happens during storms and such... And they're more or less a "sitting target" for piracy. Wonder what they do for protection. Or as somebody previously mentioned, they could be quickly run over by a commercial vessel on accident. In any case, probably the first time a company has accepted both bitcoin and the thai baht for payment.

Presumably you have a PO Box or a pick up point in the nearest town/city. You get a speedboat into town, pick it all up & take it home.

Oops. I was expecting some drone service.

Also, there should be some sort of helipad or something for emergency airlifting.

I'm not impressed. Undecided

This thing looks like a floating bunker. During World War II there were similar floating anti air platforms with guns on them and there were also floating radio masts and other contraptions. Any pictures from the inside? Does this thing vibrate much at high winds? I'd expect it to work like a drum at least as long as it's empty.

When the SHTF then you will want to be in one of those things, unless the event is a tidal wave. No internet though unless there is a floating air balloon or space node that you can connect to. Won't be able to use bitcoin, except off-chain payments when possible

There's nothing stopping you adding your own air link when you get yours up and running.

This is one of the very first of its type. It's not going to have every convenience imaginable. I presume it was put together and occupied by some hardy souls.

When do we get to see the interior?

I myself am only really interested in living under the water rather than on top. That's a little more demanding.

Wow, it's nice that such an innovative and intriguing project makes a point by accepting bitcoin. Sea covers most the the Earth. Learning how to live there might be an essential part of solving issues in the future. After all, it's probably easier than colonising other planets and yet also helpful. International waters really make sense in this case, because it should not be something that belongs to one country. Bitcoin is a natural and symbolic choice of the currency, as it's also non-governmental, global and innovative. Just like seasteading!

Most lines of wire were connected down under the sea with some tube and it is not necessary to put a floating node or some post to connect to the internet. The only problem there is the tidal wave that could interrupt the connection of the internet, but i guess it's not really a big deal since they were just outside of their city that is still visible to other people.

I think it is not yet finished constructing the way i see it was just a start of the process they will eventually expand with some land to stand.
