Roundup with Ross Hello again my fellow Asgardians. It’s been another awesome few weeks since the last post (and yes, I did say that I would do it weekly but let’s all agree to retcon that.) Bit of a longer post this time round, but I’ll post up a more streamlined summary piece soon. What’s Asgardia currently doing? I’ve been seeing a lot of comments and questions on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram wondering what’s going on in Asgardia and I wanted to take a little time out to discuss what we’re up to. Most people reading this blog will come from an established nation – They will be used to a certain level or order. A status-quo with their Government where they have rules, laws, civil services, taxes and so on – And it’s likely been this way since birth. So, it’s easy to understand why people may well take these things for granted. These nations, in most cases, have spend hundreds of years to get where they are – some nations will have had thousands of years – But in our case, we’ve just been running for just over two years. We need to build everything from Scratch! Our laws, our services, our infrastructure, our Government. The order in which this is done is very important – Because we need to establish strong foundations that the nation will...Read More

24 APRIL, 2018 Asgardia Progress Gizmodo Gizmodo’s Article by Charles Rollet reports a difficult first attempt at Democracy, sprinkles some doubts on the process along the way and, tops it off with a little bit of conspiracy theory – But, the truth of the matter is a lot brighter than the picture Rollet’s article paints of the Space Nation. It’s no secret that Asgardia has had its fair share of teething troubles during its first election. The systems, technology and social views have been stress-tested to their limits and it’s clear that there is a lot to be learnt...Read More
Is Asgardia Running out of time? 07 FEBRURAY, 2018 Asgardia, Finance, Mounting Issues Decree 15 could put Asgardia under serious strain. Update 07/02/2018 17:57: As Rebekah Berg points out, there are some funds being held in trust that are made up of the donations of the loyal and generous Asgardian citizens that will be used to fund the operations of the nations until the end of the year, in addition to this – some plans are underway for the development of an “Asgardia Business Center, new Community Portal, new legislation being set so the first bank of Asgardia can be formed, SOLAR/LUNAR up and running“ But the question remains — are all these plans going to be converted into realities before the nation needs to be self sufficient. How long will it take to implement all this when classically, Asgardia has been “Slow and steady.” in it’s progress. I had been expecting Decree 14 and Decree 15 for some time and I had been expecting them to include information regarding finances and budgets. Afterall, the Nation’s Parliament was being formed and it wouldn’t be too long until we would need to be reading budget proposald and voting on how the money was going to be spent. So when I saw Decree 15 – I was shocked at the contents of the decree. A Screenshot of Decree 15 You can view the...Read More
