The estimated cost to provide the recommended repairs is $2,300,000.

interesting, is it in international waters?

No.  IW is 20 miles, plus the property was built by the US government and a condition of the sale is that the new owner must consent to that as an ongoing fact.

The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations.

For that price, I'm seriously considering bidding on this.

We should all pitch in and bid on it and own it together as a community. Then we could host a bitcoin node there.

I don't think $1200 is the actual bid price:

I'd be worried about the whole thing collapsing and then being liable for cleanup costs.

If you look at the estimate, $1 million of that is to rent a barge that will jack the entire platform up out of the water for painting.

Why stationary? Just let's buy an old ship and let's run any profitable biz that we can conceive in international waters, from a casino to pirate hosting/no-tax commerce/weed shop/animal pr0n/SHTF resort/what have you.

Sorry, but no.  The 'Law of The Sea' is significantly more strict in many ways one might find surprising.  For example, no one on a ship in international waters (or the soverign waters claimed by a nation other than on your flagpole) may have a working firearm in their possession unless they are officials of some government or their military.  This is why merchant marines have to use fire hoses to fend off pirates in the Indian Ocean.

nope, were flying the bitcoin flag, we our sovereign.

Now if you wanted to fly say a Liberian flag, sure you have to follow Liberian rules, which state no firearms on civilian vessels.

Ah, no.  It doesn't matter what flag you fly, civilian vessels may not have weapons.  Otherwise they are a valid target of war.  That is stated explicitly in an international treaty called "the law of the sea".
