Urbit is a platform for functional-paradigm computing to provide networking, identity, and data control at the level of the operating system. The Urbit OS provides a number of helpful tools and system guarantees for Web3 and other applications. Developers will find Urbit OS and Urbit ID serve as a sound platform for building networked decentralized applications.
🏆 Urbit will award an Urbit Star (~4 ETH) to the team with the best project utilizing Urbit.
There are several possible ways to integrate Urbit and IPFS/Filecoin over a hackathon period.
ipfs://protocol browser could be introduced as a standalone app within Urbit.
Urbit OS is a hosted operating system programmed in the Hoon functional language which runs on the Nock virtual machine. Urbit OS operates as a state machine with a discrete event log providing strong guarantees about building and evaluating code.
Besides building apps directly using the Urbit OS platform, you can also work with the Urbit ID system Azimuth, an ERC-721 non-fungible point, or its wrapped equivalent $WSTR. Azimuth points also correspond to unique NFT-like digital avatars called sigils.
