“Liberstad” is an upcoming project of building Norway’s first private city. In the private city, all the properties would be owned by private individuals and all the services will be provided by various private actors. Liberstad is going to be a city which would be based on the philosophy that all human interactions should be voluntary. The project has been labeled as “little piece of freedom”.

Around 112 people from more than 28 countries have bought the land here. People from Norway, Sweden, Brazil, United Kingdom and other countries. 27 various cryptocurrencies are being accepted to purchase this land like Bitcoin [BTC] and Bitcoin Cash [BCH]. The developers say that the people who have bought the land can move in here in two years’ time, that is in 2020.

Liberstad was established on 1st June 2017 at Tjelland farm, in Marnadal municipality, Sørlandet, Norway. They have been selling this particular land for as low as 75,000 Norwegian Kronor [NOK]. $9,400 for 1000 meter square and as much as 375,000 NOK ($47,100) for 5,000 meter square.

John Holmesland and Sondre Bjellås are the first to buy this farmland. They have been promoting this through various social media platforms and Liberstad’s blog spot. John Holmesland stated that they are planning to set up a Private Police department, Fire department, and other utility departments.

According to John Holmesland and Sondre Bjellas, another five hundred more investors have signed up for buying the plots in Liberstad. With slogans such as ‘Taxation is Theft’ Liberstad is going to gain a lot of popularity in the free world.

John Homesland says:

“We have been inspired from Atlantic Station in Georgia [USA]. This was also a similar project as Liberstad.”

The main motive of  Liberstad is to be a voluntary, profit-based, private enterprise that offers protection of life, freedom, and property within a particular area of land. The only thing that they demand of Liberstad is that one should respect the principle of non-aggression and Private Property Rights.

A Bitcoin proponent says:

“It seems legit. However do not take my word for it, do your own research before you do anything on the site. I would say that the idea is great, and the scenery there is pretty good as well frankly. But really these anarchist experiments have gone on before and most of them have either failed or abandoned by their owners. But again, buying land with bitcoin in a faraway land… I love that idea.”

    It’s good that people have options to live as they believe as long as they pledge to do no harm to those who think differently. Tolerance…
