to develop the world’s first seastead.
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.
Mid-term future seastead concept 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.
Varyon is an ERC20 token on the Ethereum blockchain. At present, it functions as an acknowledgment of the support and efforts of the community, and as such is expected to play a role in events, consultations, and community perks.
At a later time, when Varyon can be used in SeaZones and we contemplate selling it in a wider offering, we have a broad range of potential use cases for it.
Disclaimer: Please understand that the stated potential uses for Varyon are purely hypothetical at this time, do not represent a complete list of what Varyon may or may not be used for in the future, and may change in part or in whole.
We were humbled by the community's support when 3,100 ETH were raised in a public presale which ended July 14 2018. However, we later decided to postpone a potential full sale and refund early participants (see announcement). Varyon is not available for sale by Blue Frontiers at this time.
Limited supply: 1 billion. No more tokens can ever be created.
The smart contract will be published on the Ethereum blockchain.Smart contract Audit
