When the US bought the Danish Virgin Islands, part of the price were to support Denmark’s claim to the whole island of Greenland, and help keeping it that way.

That just makes it a bit more absurd.

It's not "currently owned" - it's been part of the kingdom of Denmark since we discovered it a thousand years ago. And they own themselves.

At one point in time Greenland was not covered in ice. Maybe a good thought but unfortunately not for sale.
