Chorus One, a Blockchain Staking Provider, Broadens its Reach to the Peer-to-Peer Network Urbit

# Chorus One Expands to Urbit Network – Hosting Services on the Rise

Chorus One, a renowned provider of staking services for over 40 blockchains and protocols, including Ethereum, Solana, Cosmos, and Polkadot, is venturing into the world of Urbit peer-to-peer network hosting services. With the introduction of their new platform, Red Horizon, Chorus One becomes the first major blockchain or technology player to join the Urbit network from outside its original ecosystem[^1^].

Urbit is a fascinating peer-to-peer network that offers users their own “personal server” to store data. Users can interact with others on the network while keeping local records of their interactions, eliminating the need for middlemen and centralized Web2 applications[^2^]. However, it has faced criticism for being complex to understand and navigate, limiting its user base[^3^].

Now, with the addition of hosting providers like Chorus One, Urbit aims to attract more users by simplifying access to the network through a fee-based ID system[^4^]. Chorus One believes that providing a hosting service for Urbit aligns perfectly with their existing staking services for various blockchain networks[^5^].

The launch of the new hosting platform is expected to have broad appeal, catering not only to the general public but also decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) and communities looking to distance themselves from centralized corporations[^6^]. Chorus One anticipates that Urbit will become a highly sought-after product, making hosting an obvious next step for their expansion[^7^].

As the number of IDs or “ships” on the Urbit network continues to surge, with the availability of more hosting services, Chorus One’s entrance signifies a significant milestone for Urbit[^8^]. Currently, there are three hosting providers actively supporting the network, including Tlon, the company that sponsored Urbit’s development until 2021[^9^].

By joining the Urbit network, Chorus One takes a strategic and forward-thinking approach to their business, embracing new opportunities in the rapidly evolving blockchain and technology landscape[^1^]. With their expertise and reputation, Chorus One’s expansion to Urbit’s hosting services is poised to revolutionize the way users engage with decentralized networks in the future.

Chorus One’s bet on Urbit’s future growth is described by executives as a natural extension of the company’s staking services on blockchains including Ethereum, Solana, Cosmos and Polkadot.

Chorus One, a provider of staking services for more than 40 blockchains and protocols including Ethereum, Solana, Cosmos and Polkadot, is joining a growing field of hosting service providers on the Urbit peer-to-peer network.

The new hosting platform, called Red Horizon, marks the first foray onto the Urbit network by a major blockchain or technology player that was not originally building within the close-knit ecosystem, according to Chorus One’s Gary Lieberman.

Urbit is a peer-to-peer network that works largely by giving each user a “personal server” to store their own data; when users interact over the network, they each keep local records of those interactions. It was started in 2002 well before Bitcoin’s launch in 2009.

The network isn’t technically a blockchain but shares many of the same ideals, such as trying to short-circuit middlemen and centralized “Web2” applications that dominate online activity and profit partly by monetizing users’ data.

The new hosting service could be “ideal for the general public, DAOs and any other community interested in leaving MegaCorps behind,” according to Chorus One’s press release on the launch. A DAO is a decentralized autonomous organization – a type of group that’s governed by computer code and token holders, in contrast to a company owned by shareholders and managed by executives.

A frequent criticism of Urbit – acknowledged even by top developers within the ecosystem – is that it’s complicated to understand and difficult to use. The introduction of hosting providers grew partly out of an effort to attract more users – essentially making it easy for people to easily get an ID on the network in exchange for a fee.

In May, Urbit Foundation Executive Director Josh Lehman (known as ~wolref-podlex on Urbit) gave a presentation at CoinDesk’s Consensus 2023 conference noting that the number of IDs or “ships” on the network had surged over the past year, as more hosting services became available.

Urbit’s website shows three hosting providers currently up and running, including Tlon, the for-profit company that sponsored the network’s development until 2021.

Providing a hosting service for Urbit seemed like a natural extension of Chorus One’s staking services for blockchain networks, Lieberman told CoinDesk in an interview.

“We’re anticipating that Urbit itself is going to be a product that a lot of people are going to want to use,” said Lieberman, who goes by ~tiller-tolbus on Urbit. “Hosting was somewhat of an obvious place to go.”
