Today’s prompt is [prefix]nymity. That one’s just too easy though.

An Urbit ship is a cryptographic title on a will signed by private key, a human-memorable name, and a packet routing address. Ships are classed by the number of bits in their address.

A 32-bit urbit (like ~firbyr-napbes) is called a planet. A 16-bit urbit (like ~pollev) is a star. An 8-bit ship (like ~mun) is a galaxy. A planet is an identity for an independent, adult human. Stars and galaxies are network infrastructure.
