A floating Pacific island is in the works with its own government, cryptocurrency and 300 houses from CNBC.

 

  • The Floating Island Project plans to create off-shore housing that uses its own currency and operates outside of government regulations.
  • The project is a pilot program in partnership with the government of French Polynesia.
  • A long-term vision for the project is hundreds of new countries floating on the ocean.

If you’re struggling to do business or just live under your country’s administration, a movement of philanthropists, academics and investors is working on a very sci-fi alternative.

Nathalie Mezza-Garcia is a political scientist turned “seavangelesse” — her term for an evangelist in favor of living off the grid — and on the ocean.

Mezza-Garcia spoke with CNBC’s Matthew Taylor about what she sees as the trouble with governments, and why she believes tech startups should head to Tahiti.

This seavangelesse is a researcher for the Blue Frontiers and Seasteading Institute’s highly-anticipated Floating Island Project.
