Article

Urbit is a stack consisting of a programming language (HoonHoon), virtual machine (Nock) and an OS (Arvo) which runs as a Linux app that runs a virtual machine. This virtual machine hosts instances of the operating system called 'identities' or 'ships'. Urbit uses galactic references for components of its system, e.g. a virtual machine, planet (identity on a virtual machine), moon (sub identity space), stars (an address space), planets (64k per star).

Tlon (the company behind Urbit) has been backed (invested in) by notable investors: Peter Thiel, a16z and SV Angel. Hoon is a low level language allowing only increments and similar to assembly language in terms of opacity. The file systemfile system is immutable and version controlled and every physical machine in Urbit exists in a global filesystem. Each machine inside the file system has its own directory which is indexed by a number.

At least 1,024 stars were sold. Therefore, an estimate of ,288 in presales were generated (assuming all stars were sold to 3rd parties to Tlon).
