Then what exactly is the point?
There is none.

TMP has specified that Antarctica and the Arctic are willing to accept anything as payment(specifically items that have little to no real value to the seller - what would Antarctica do with billions of yen worth of origami or sushi?)
Countries could pay with dirt...I prefer paying with seawater - no cost to the buyer to ship as payment.

So, then, the question becomes...How many gallons of sea water is an Akagi worth?
