A core structural feature of current models of government is centralization. Too much centralized authority leads to inefficient bureaucracies and representatives disconnected from the people they are meant to serve. Given a suitable technological solution, governments are ripe for decentralization. That technological solution is seasteading.
Mid-term future seastead concept developed by our Dutch engineers at Blue21
Seasteading brings decentralization beyond the digital world of bits and into the world of atoms by providing modular, floating structures – seasteads – on which the evolution of new societies and forms of governance can occur. Promising solutions can branch off at any time by physically separating to create new seasteads – enabling a high level of evolvability and quick rate of adaptation. Mimicking nature’s time-tested method of variation and selection, the process of decentralizing governance through seasteading will spark the creation and evolution of new advancements in civilization.
Seastead concept for 2021 developed by our Dutch engineers at Blue21
When our homes and businesses can float to locations we choose, we can relatively easily rearrange our cities and sail our residence to other locations. Governments will no longer have a monopoly on the space where citizens live and businesses conduct their commercial activities. Instead governments will need to act like service providers, competing to attract citizens and businesses. Consequently, we will have an ever-evolving marketplace for government in a decentralized world.
The SeaCoin is a general purpose payment token for the exchange of goods and services in the Blue Frontiers ecosystem, other ecosystems, and between token holders. Blue Frontiers is planning to use the proceeds of the sale to expand its ecosystem and create SeaZones and Seasteads, and will only accept SeaCoins for its products and services.
Presales will be sold ahead of the public sale through private placement, with bonuses of 5%-15%.
The public sale will take place in May. There will not be bonuses in the public sale.
* The amount of SeaCoin held in reserves and distributed to Blue Frontier’s early buyers is correlated with the amount released in the public sale. That is, the more SeaCoin sold in the public sale, the less held in reserves and the more distributed to early buyers.
* worth of ETH. Approximations are due to ETH daily volatility. Blue Frontiers will use the USD/ETH conversion rate found the closing of the preceding day (midnight UTC) on coinmarketcap.com to determine the ratio of SeaCoin to ETH in the sales.
The funds raised from the crowdsale will be used to implement Blue Frontiers mission. Proceeds from the token sale are expected to be divided among the following activities:
Blue Frontiers, Pte. Ltd. (Blue Frontiers) was founded by the executive team and ambassadors of The Seasteading Institute. Our team’s cumulative experience and knowledge, network, government and media relations make us the best suited company to usher in the era of seasteading. We have taken an ambitious long-term vision and established pragmatic steps toward developing the first seasteads.
