No need to sync and some cost savings. I like it. While we're connecting continents, why not connect 6 including across the Bering Strait? Such an idea was recently shared this year among other global fixes:

Another place that might benefit, I'm told, is Japan! After the Fukushima Melt-through accidents they found out it's not very practical to have TWO different power grids. One at 50Hz and one at 60Hz I think it was. With HVDC you can connect the two and boy do they need that!

Interesting to put forward an approach to reduce losses associated with transmission, but the proposal does not address the costs of building HVDC lines and also shows a lack of familiarity with how to do mesh design. There are also some statements of fact in error: the proposal suggests that there is a 50 percent lost in transmission but the actual loss is almost an order of magnitude less
