Apparently there are people investing in seasteading. The Seasteading Institute plans on creating practical housing on the sea, and maybe spurring some micronations. I love this quote (emphasis mine):
“There’s a history of a lot of crazy people trying this sort of thing, and the idea is to do it in a way that’s not crazy,” said Joe Lonsdale, the institute’s chairman and a principal at Clarium Capital Management, a multibillion-dollar hedge fund.
That would be key.
