Peer-to-peer network Urbit releases the first minimized full version of OS 1

Peer-to-peer network Urbit releases the first minimized full version of Urbit OS 1. In OS 1 version, users can publish text, chat and share links to group friends on a platform. All data is opened without third-party review and use. Log in with the same decentralized identity. Urbit OS 1 is based on a browser, no security audit is performed, only simple functions are provided, but anyone can extend and develop it. Urbit plans to launch OS 2 in the second quarter of 2020, which will accelerate the use of ordinary users with non-technical background. This version of the operating system will be compatible with current Internet browsers. It has the same functions as OS 1 and allows users to post blogs, short messages and share links. However, unlike OS 1 based on browser tabs, OS 2 will release an independent application. And support Urbit peer-to-peer payment with BTC and ETH. According to, Urbit is an end-to-end network that attempts to reconstruct the “server-client” model of the Internet. It aims to invent a new point-to-point network that replaces the “client-server” model, replacing the current centralized Internet system The status of data ownership is monopolized by Internet giants. In this peer-to-peer network invented by Urbit, users have their own servers and do not need third-party services provided by others. All servers communicate directly with each other, users can interact with various applications without giving up data control, and have full autonomy and accessibility of their own data. Urbit not only invented the new operating system Arvo, a new pure functional programming language Hoon, but also invented a new decentralized identity system Azimuth. The uniqueness of this Urbit identity system is that it adopts a free and loose hierarchical governance structure, and has a very cool astronomical naming system. From top to bottom, they are “galaxies, stars, planets, satellites”. It is DNS, ISP, personal computer and its connected devices in the Internet. Because Urbit’s address space is issued with an upper limit, this makes Urbit’s identity ID scarce and has a value that can be captured by digital assets.
