Happy New Year everyone. Here is an update from Liberstad
Manpower and social media activities
Despite that we have not been very active on social media over the past year, we have however been very active on the construction and development of Liberstad. We are still very limited on manpower and we have therefore focused most of our work effort on the physical development of Liberstad and all the various construction projects.
As of now we are only 2 people working full-time on the construction projects, in addition to 3 people working part time, and because of the size of the project and amount of work, we have unfortunately not had enough time to update our followers and manage our social media accounts
Restrictions on cultural events
In addition we have also been affected by the insane and tyrannical restrictions the government has imposed. This year was supposed to be the first year we would see some real income to the project in the form of events and musical festival that we had planned for this summer, but because of the restrictions on social interactions, we had to cancel all plans for events and festivals in 2020. And we will most likely not be able to arrange any large events and concert this year either.
However, we’ve had plenty of visitors in Liberstad all summer from both landowners and members, and there has been no lack of parties, gatherings and good times whatsoever.
We in the Liberstad Team are still working tirelessly without any pay or compensation except for the salary we receive in our local cryptocurrency City Coin. Despite this and despite that we’ve only had a very modest amount of startup capital available, we have still come a very long way on the development of Liberstad since our start in June 2017.
If you want to follow the progress and receive updates on what we have been working on, what we are currently working on and also our future plans, you are more than welcome to become a supporting member of Liberstad through our membership organization (LMO). Our public updates on the development will be limited and most updates and information will be exclusive for our members and landowners only.
Liberstad currently consists of 123 landowners and their families, in addition to 167 members. The small amount of income from the membership fee is going towards a new membership website and administration of the membership organization. We hope that you will consider becoming a supporting member and continue to follow the project as a member. We will do our very best to keep everyone updated on the project and provide an online as well as physical community for voluntaryists, libertarians, anarcho-capitalist and everyone else that supports peace and freedom.
It has always been very important for us to use the money we have received through presale and donations as efficient and frugal as we possibly can, and we have managed to come a very long way with the very modest amount of startup capital we've had available. We, the founders have also added a substantial amount of capital to the project in addition to many thousands of workhours.
We have dedicated the rest of our life to continue the development of Liberstad, and for us there is no turning back or giving up. We believe that creating private proprietary communities and cities is the most efficient and effective way of dealing with this unfree world. It is not only very important for this generation, but it is also very important for future generations. As parents it is our job to provide and lay the foundation for a free and civilized society for our children to grow up in and have a prosperous future.
Our highest wish at the moment is to speed up the progress and development of Liberstad, and for this we need the much-needed capital to do so. We have therefor launched a fundraising campaign to try and raise the much-needed financial support from our fellow voluntaryists, libertarians, crypto-anarchists and other freedom loving people who would like to see Liberstad grow and expand.
The raised funds we receive will go 100% directly to the development of Liberstad. This includes the completion of the Anarcho Park, Event-Center and Playground.
Depending on the amount we are able to raise we will also use the funds for other facilities and infrastructure in Liberstad for landowners and members to enjoy.
If we should be so very fortunate to reach our soft-cap goal of 50 bitcoins, we will celebrate this by constructing an additional park, The Bitcoin Park.
As with the Anarcho-Park, The Bitcoin Park will be a 2000 sqm circular park shaped as the bitcoin logo, with a huge ₿ made of paving stones that will be easily visible from the sky on aerial photos like Google Earth.
We hope that you will consider donating and sending some financial support our way and help us speed up the development of Norway's first private city.
Thank you and kind regards from
John, Sondre, and the rest of the Liberstad Team
