All this is becoming now, is a giant scam, you have a group of people who managed to con the UN, by filing correct paper work to establish a " nation " and then conned people into joining via an idea for the future, and getting out of the crap country they are in now.
Then mystery people get into government supposedly voted in, with no proof what so ever as to how the voting actually took place or was verified.
Now they want money.
Big surprise, why not.
An maybe, they will get some money from people who just do not know better. And or actually buy into the crap that is being sold. But what you will see after Nov 2019 is the citizen / followers, on the main page changing, Citizens numbers will decline due to " citizens " not paying the " Citizen fee " and thusly converting them into " followers " making an increase in that. This isn't remotely an economic, thing, a politics thing, captialism or socialism. All this is now. Is a total Con Job. One shmuck managed to spend enough money to launch a cube stat into space, and create a website. bravo. big deal.
If anything, Asgardia becomes a private club for the rich. Next to happen when they realize they cant get people to pay the " citizen fee " they are going to make this website, a pay to use website, or rather subscription based, with things like, you will get up todate Asgardian news, on what is being done for the future, have your vote count, only paying members can vote, be apart of the future. blah blah blah, and all you get is a nifty worthless digital i.d card, not recognized by anyone in the USA or Europe.
The only way this is not a con job is by creating a banking system, that is locked, with only a research and development purpose, maybe a few scholarship programs, and nothing else permitted. no business lunches, no paying for hotel stays, no b.s. and it would have to be handled by a reputable firm, here on planet earth. that is under jurisdiction in a country of law an order.
