After years of planning, developing, and speculating, the seastead project is becoming a reality. What is a seastead? Basically, it’s a floating platform of any size that serves as a permanent place of residence. It also may host businesses, hotels, or other permanent establishments. In simple terms, a seastead is a floating city.
The Seasteading Institute, one of the major organizations behind the project, believes this will help solve some of the planet’s most pressing issues: climate change, bad government, and overpopulation. This year, they’ve made their biggest leap yet.
