What is Urbit?
Uqbar is built atop Urbit, a fully functional distributed peer-to-peer network and operating system designed to offer users full ownership of personal data. All protocols on Urbit’s network are both permissionless and optional, meaning users can freely utilize any public service on the network, customize those services to match their individual needs, and discard any unnecessary features they’d rather do without. For programmers, this optionality offers a development ecosystem ripe for creativity and customization. For the average user, Urbit promises a secure, simple, unified internet headquarters with both enhanced privacy and optimal functionality.
This flexibility is especially important for providing integrated on- and off- chain applications. Urbit provides a secure, decentralized platform for the rapid activity required by everyday life, while still allowing Uqbar to settle the most important, highest priority transactions on-chain.
