Odds & Ends

Some quick hits from on and around the network this past month:

  • Tlon has updated group roles for their Groups app. Now you can create different channels with different permission settings. See ~poldec-tonteg’s tweet thread on the subject here.

  • Uqbar’s Automated Market Maker is live on the network. Mint coins, create liquidity pools, and swap your digital currency of choice. Read the %blog post from the team at Uqbar here.

  • Holium’s AJ LaMarc (~larryx-woldyr) has built Urbit front-ends for Uniswap, Osmosis, and Safe. This means that you can now swap or hold tokens and access your multi-sig from the comfort of your Urbit. Download them from ~larryx-woldyr today.

  • Portal, “the front page of Urbit,” has become more featureful. It now includes a Twitter-like feed from which anyone with an Urbit ship can post. Download from ~worpet-bildet today.

  • Also from Uqbar, you can now mint NFTs to serve as pfps & unique usernames on Uqbar’s %pongo. Check it out by getting the Uqbar Development Suite plus %pongo for iPhone or Android.

  • Rumors are swirling about a new organization on Urbit called BlimpDAO. For more information, poke around the Urbit network, or look up at the sky for something strange and glorious.

As always, we look forward to seeing you on the network!
