    As far as I can tell, Pete....not much.
    The "permit" was granted by NOT the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Labour...the same folks that host this heartbreaking page on the web and are legally empowered to issue such a permit:
    https://forms.bahamas.gov.bs/dp_form.asp?fid=115<yeah...if you can download that permit form, send one to me...>
    but by THIS man - Cyril Roker of "The Port Department" in Nassau (signed by the 'Acting Port Controller', Cyril Roker.)
    Permission to collect Gold out of Bahamian waters? Does the Minnis Cabinet know about this? | Bahamaspress.com
    <I suspect the Minnis Cabinet has not a clue>
    and here is the mission statement from The Port Duhpartment...no shipwrecks mentioned:
    https://www.bahamas.gov.bs/wps/porta...vZ0FBIS9nQSEh/

    In one article we see this:
    "PO8 received its salvaging license from government officials in the Bahamas late in 2017."
    https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/deep-sea-treasure-hunting-blockchain/
    but that seems to fly in the face of the following:
    "
    Form Title: Shipwreck Sites Salvage Application
    Description: This application is to be used to obtain a permit to carryout salvage exploration in waters of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas.

    Abandon Shipwreck Act
    FAQ's: May I have a Permit to carry out the salvage exploration of a Historical Wreck Site in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas?
    No. Currently there is a Government Moratorium in place; therefore Permits are not being issued, however once the moratorium is lifted permits may be issued.

    What do I need to bring in when I apply for a salvage permit?
    Proof of involvement in the Company, A copy of the Corporate Constitution and By-laws, A Project Proposal outlining, Background Experience, Source of Funding, A Geographical description of the area that is the Longitude and latitude to the nearest 10th of a minute, A geodetic chart with the area requested.

    Does my permit allow me to carry out my operations any where in the Commonwealth of Bahamas?
    No. Exploration can only be carried out in the area assigned to the Salvager.

    Contact: MARITIME AFFAIRS & LABOUR, MINISTRY OF
    2ND FL. GENERAL POST OFFICE BLDG.
    EAST HILL ST.
    NASSAU, BAHAMAS
    N 3008"




    The above was found at: https://forms.bahamas.gov.bs/faq.asp?fid=115

    Cyril Roker retired the day after he signed the permit. My inside source tells me that Pieces Of Eight does not have the endorsement of the Commonwealth or the Prime Minister's office.

    so they fund "the project" by selliing off crypto coins --- you in turn get "in place artifacts" on the ocean floor as security for your coin --or recovered and "kept" { in a museam) in the Bahama's for the public to gawk at ...you on paper at least own the recovered / discovered item "on paper" ...but try to cash it out and turn a profiet in real world money and see what happens...

    Read up on the 'value' of this crap before you even think about investing in one. 99.9% are worthless. Anyone can float an offering.

    Note: A non-fungible token (NFT) is a special type of cryptographic token which represents something unique; non-fungible tokens are thus not interchangeable. This is in contrast to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, and many network or utility tokens that are fungible in nature.

    So, explain exactly how blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, would in any way, aid in providing anything to the project?

    Here is how it works; a fool buys PO8 cryptocurrency. PO8 has money. Fool has less money.

    They mention spending the funds to research the location beginning Fall 2018, getting the team and equipment together, and by Fall 2019, actually begin the underwater search..
    PO8 mentions first target is the Maravillas, wasnt that already recovered (and a legal mess?) Why a year to research and find it, wasnt it already found?

    https://www.po8.io/

    So, according to PO8, any artefacts recovered are kept in a museum in the Bahamas, the crypto currency is valued at the value artefact of the recovery which the NFT you purchased is attached.....So it looks like you have your choice in their marketplace of which artefact to 'own".

    NFTs will be tradable on the PAZAR marketplace rolling out later in the year. PAZAR users will be able to buy, sell, auction, lease, trade and leverage their NFTs on the marketplace platform.”

    So one is baffled into some value of the coin from the artefacts value based on a crypto marketplace that they are developing called PAZAR, (not an existing crypto market!)

    "Recovered artifacts will be digitally imprinted with distinguishable NFTs ensuring the majority artifacts live on the blockchain and physically remain in the custody of the PO8 Foundation for continued studies by the archaeology community, and to be exhibited in various museums worldwide."

    The value of the NFT is based on an artefact, not the collection as a whole, but EACH arefact.

    and to top it off, you get to keep your crypto coins in their very own MADS wallet! (Marine Artefact Database system)

    Min invest is $50,000, but lucky you, for a limited time, there is a private sale for a min of $250,000 $$$$$

    cant see anything wrong with this!

    All I can say is that, as always, politics here and abroad are pay to play and if you can't pay, you can't play.
