It has been exactly two months since I announced the creation of our space nation.
As many of you requested, we extended the registration deadline on the Asgardia website from 31 October to today, 12 December.
The number of registrations has now reached 565,000 and, in order to move to the second stage of creating Asgardia, we have stopped accepting preliminary registrations.
I now ask you to fill out this online form, which will confirm that you are truly serious about your desire to become an Asgardian.
After submitting the form, you will receive a personal certificate and unique ID number that corresponds to your original Asgardia registration.
The first 100,000 people who participate in this second stage - “the commitment verification” - will become the first Asgardians in history able to vote on the Asgardia Declaration of Unity and Constitution, as well as in Asgardia elections and much more.
This does not mean Asgardia is closing its doors to new prospective citizens – of course not! It is being done in order to accelerate the third stage of forming our new nation state – the creation of ID cards, access to the new Asgardia Forum and direct participation in its affairs, and also some other exclusive privileges.
From today, new applicants can fill out the second stage verification form. This opportunity will last until the first 100,000 of the already registered Asgardians are confirmed and it will guarantee the same rights to all of you.
There is second important part in the new verification form. In order for Asgardia to be accepted as a fully-fledged state, it is necessary to negotiate with Earth states and various international organisations.
As the Founding Father, I am ready to take the temporary role of the Head of Nation to act in the name of and on behalf of Asgardia towards these Earth institutions until elections in Asgardia - based on the first Constitution - are held. In order to do this, I need your trust and mandate, which you can confirm in the commitment verification form.
In conclusion, I would like to express my deepest gratitude and acknowledge the work done by our many volunteers – members of our ever-growing team supporting Asgardia.
The Asgardian community has already shown self-organisation of the highest level and is the prototype of a wonderful society for the future that we are all building together.
