I have Urbit stars for sale


(Updated November 25, 2021)

I purchased a galaxy (~nem) several years ago and I'm looking to sell some of that address space. I have a number of "stars" available which are bundles of 65,000 urbit ids (planets). Each planet supports 2^32 devices. There are 4 billion urbit ids (planets) in total.

The price is the current public price for 1 WSTAR or $31,000 per star, whichever is greater. I'm afraid I cannot offer bulk discounts because prices are moving up too quickly and I don't really want to unload too many at once. It's payable in a major cryptocurrency that we can agree on or by wire transfer, transferwise, or zelle. Name list here.  

I have the ability to offer escrow services only if you pay in ETH, for an extra 2.5% charge (which goes to the escrow provider). Otherwise, we'll have to do it the old fashioned way, however I am widely known in the community and I've delivered many stars without a problem.

The process will generally work like this.

I will also sell a planet (azimuth point) for $20 plus gas fees (Note: At current gas fees, your total amount for gas will be $100 or so, but can vary widely) via paypal, venmo, zelle, crypto, whatever, which basically covers my time and cost (thanks defi!) to generate one and send it (you can pick the name from these options for an extra $10 : https://urbit.live/~falnem#planets/7, left tab).  If you wait till Nov 30, there will be a layer 2 solution and gas fees will be basically free.

And if you happen to be interested in purchasing a galaxy, I have a different one for sale and am open to offers. Serious offers only, please...something that is in the ballpark of 256 x star prices.

As an aside, I have every intention of holding onto my galaxy and providing a full suite of services for the stars and planets under my galaxy. I assume this really doesn't become reality for another year or so, but if anybody is interested in working together on something like that send me an email. Please know that such efforts are likely not going to get rolling until late 2021.
