Ah yes, the Ethereum Ephebolia Enclave.

Because that's all they really want it for.

"A group of crypto-evangelists, led by Max Olivier and Helena Lopez,"

I like how "crypto-envangelist" is no longer a hyperbolic term of mockery, but instead just an uncontroversial, denotative description of these people.

I know there's a brazillion more fundamental problems a bozo can understand with this scheme scam,  but explain how an island is a drive from... anywhere (without a boat)?


The 220ha (550-acre) Nananu-i-cake sits about 1km off the northern coast of Viti Levu, one of Fiji's two main islands, about 2.5 hours drive from the international airport.

Looks like you drive up there to a marina and then take a short boat ride over to the island.

Why do I have a feeling that this island was supposed to be a libertarian haven for drug use and trafficking underage girls/boys?
Oh right, because cryptocurrency is a scam for buying drugs and trafficking humans. Please just let crypto die already.

the idea is not entirely without merit but there are quite a few critical flaws that need to be worked out by someone smarter than me.

for now i will be content with mocking cryptobros relentlessly.
