The long read: Last year, three cryptocurrency enthusiasts bought a cruise ship. They named it the Satoshi, and dreamed of starting a floating libertarian utopia. It didn’t work out
Three cryptocurrency entrepreneurs, able to drop $9.5m on a cruise ship to turn it into a libertarian village, discover that running a ship startlingly includes rules and regulations, and, well, the basic laws of physics - "no, you can't take the engine out of the side _at anchor_ to swap it for a more fuel-efficient one, it's below the waterline" (and probably weighs several hundred tonnes).
If you're incapable of doing basic research, then running a ship is not for you.
