Remember that you don’t need a planet to try Urbit! You can boot a comet for free today, even on Windows, and even hosted on a server for free.

Check whether you are buying a planet on Layer 1 or Layer 2 before purchase. Layer 1 planets invoke Ethereum transaction fees that typically exceed the value of a planet. You can find directions for going from purchase to booting a Layer 1 planet here. Planets spawned on Layer 2 do not require any crypto wallet management.
