Is seasteading safe?
Existing technologies in the cruise ships and oil platforms industries have proven to be safe. As with anything, of course, there are risks, but seasteads will employ much of the same safety technology, such as storm warning systems, that are currently used in the ocean industry. We also expect early seasteads to be mobile and/or modular and able to move to avoid storms. Later seasteads will likely employ artificial breakwaters to protect them from rogue waves. Of course, as we continue to gather information about safe designs, risks lessen.
