I tried to send some SC to my Desktop wallet. It seems like it is stuck?


Code:
root@aeonminerone:~/Sia_v0.4.2-beta_linux_amd64# ./siac wallet send siacoins 3600SC 5dfa9f1c7ccca11115bb3e9ad3bae7c1a4e5e6a95557093e8095210c2a05d3da0d8c054e3b04

Code:
root@aeonminerone:~/Sia_v0.4.2-beta_linux_amd64# ./siac wallet status
Wallet status:
Encrypted, Unlocked
Confirmed Balance:   3719.10 SC
Unconfirmed Delta:  -3610.00 SC
Exact:               3719098285720000000000000000 H
Siafunds:            0 SF
Siafund Claims:      0 SC
root@aeonminerone:~/Sia_v0.4.2-beta_linux_amd64#

Did I do something wrong? How do I get my funds?

Looks like the transfer just didn't confirm. Note with the current low hash rates, blocks are mined very slow, about 1 every few hours. So, it might take that long, or longer, for your transaction to confirm.

If you don't have both nodes running all the time then you need to wait for a block confirmation before the balance shows up. I suspect you just didn't give it enough time, block rate is really slow right now because miners keep coin-hopping.

OK, but the wallet I created and sent those funds to disappeared from my desktop client. The whole client looks as though everything disappeared, and and the wallet is re-syncing from the beginning. So it looks like my funds are gone. Is there a way to retrieve this?

http://explorestaging.siacoin.com/hash?h=5dfa9f1c7ccca11115bb3e9ad3bae7c1a4e5e6a95557093e8095210c2a05d3da0d8c054e3b04&submit=Submit

The explorer says that the coins are still in the address you sent them to. How did you get that address? And what version was the wallet? If you got the address from a 0.4.x wallet I can help you get the coins back. It'll be in your backup file, but you might have to do more than load it. (you may need to create a bunch of addresses - like 100 or so - and then restart 'siad' before the balance appears. We're working on making that unnecessary in future versions)

What exactly does that mean? Doesn't at least one block need to be mined before the transaction is registered on the receiving end?

The nodes will do 0-confirmation transactions, they'll show up as 'pending' in the 0.4.x UI.

Thanks Taek. Sia seems an interesting and very promising product.
Will be waiting for the release of version 1.0

There is no reason to wait for version 1.0.

Sia is already an interesting and useful protocol. You can already upload files to the Sia network, with the knowledge your files are encrypted and stored redundantly across multiple hosts. The price for this service is currently much cheaper that most, if not all, other storage providers.

In fact, I'd say now is the best time to get in. The Siacoin (SC) used to pay for storage on the Sia network is currently also very, very cheap.

The protocol and client are both still fairly unstable. Great if you are comfortable with bugs, and with the chance of losing money and files because of early-stage instability.

Things get better every iteration, but there is still a lot that could be improved. But it's definitely worth trying out with trivial money and with files you've got backed up in places other than Sia.

You guys are using Reid-Solomon right? What are your parameters?

Right now we're using 2 data pieces with 10 parity pieces. That's a redundancy of 6. By November we're looking at switching to 3 data pieces with 12 parity pieces, for a redundancy of 5. We'll keep raising the numbers and reducing redundancy as the host churn drops.

Ok, that makes sense. Running simulations on our Test Group B data. Will plug that in.

Announcing PHP-Sia
GitHub: https://github.com/pmknutsen/PHP-Sia

PHP-Sia provides a library of methods for PHP developers to communicate with Sia.

This library will be expanded as I work on this for my own projects. I'm currently implementing an accounts system, for tracking address balances and payments.

For now, the library supports:
  • sending funds
  • creating addresses
  • uploading/sharing/downloading files
  • and more

Note that PHP-Sia uses some API calls that are deprecated as of Sia 0.4.2. I'll keep maintaining the code to keep up with new Sia releases.

Question: In the UI, it says XXXX blocks left. What happens to files when the rental period expires? Do files auto-renew? What if wallet is empty? They then get deleted?

As of now the file is deleted from the network when it expires.

An upcoming version will feature auto-renew

hi, sorry to be a pita, how exactly does one use this command  `./siad --help`

i stuck it in the cmd window with no joy
dragged the miner into the cmd window, deleted the miner.exe bit of the end and replaced it with that quote with no joy amongst many other combos
i feel sure this is basics im mesing up but perhaps you could give a full example of how to use it please?

thanks

Anyone heard anything from ocminer on a possible pool? I'm guessing not, I may shoot a pm to him. Really would be a plus right now to have.  Smiley

You would only use the dot-slash on linux. It sounds like you're using windows, where you would use a backslash or nothing. Try '.\siad --help' or just 'siad --help'.

on Windows it's 'siad.exe'. You drag the 'siad' binary into the command prompt, and end up with something like C:\stuff\siad.exe --help

i have some coins in a wallet from the initial client that was buggy (Version 0.3.3.3) that I'm waiting to import into the next stable version. Is it safe to still send coins to the address from that 0.3.3.3 wallet? I'm pretty sure it would be OK, but I want to check just in case.

"Each siacoin is composed of 10^24 indivisible units."

Why on earth would you want this? Considering the reward is 300.000 with 1 decreasing each block...

No not safe.. it's all still very buggy.. just being honest.

I mined two blocks had 593 ks or something.. then tried to send from wallet 3.3.3 to new wallet gave me an error too large a transaction then wiped my balance to zero.

after weeks of trying I was some how able get it to show some coins but half my coins were lost, never sent and not in original wallet.

I ended sending the remaining coins to an exchange in increments and will leave it there until it all works.
