(Updated April 16, 2019)
I am extremely excited after the beta launch of Urbit in January 2019.
I purchased some address space 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 addresses (planets). I am ever so slightly annoyed that they seem to be calling planets “Azimuth points” now. Each planet supports 2^32 devices. There are 4 billion addresses (planets) in total. A large number of them are locked for several years, so as of spring 2019 I assume there are not too many places to buy them.
To be fully upfront, the price is $5000 per star. I don’t like negotiating, so that’s a firm price, unless you might be interested in a bulk discount. It’s payable in a major cryptocurrency that we can agree on or by wire transfer.
I believe this is a fair price. Many stars and galaxies are locked up. Before you purchase a star or a galaxy, you need to check to see whether it’s locked or not. If you are buying for long-term holding, then that’s not a big deal, but some people have been disappointed after purchasing stars and finding out they can’t spawn planets. All of my stars are fully unlocked.
I will also sell a planet (azimuth point) for $40, which basically covers my time to run all of the smart contracts to generate one and send it (you can pick the name from these options: https://urbit.live/~falnem#planets/7). And if you happen to be interested in purchasing a galaxy, I am aware of one for sale and can connect you.
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.
