Yes patiently waiting for the pool as well. Almost thought it was imminent as in a few pages back  lol

Me too  Tongue

It's still a high priority.  Lot of big things are coming on Friday, not the pool unfortunately. But we're doing a huge marketing push that should bring Sia to a lot of eyeballs. Stay tuned  Smiley

Hi, I'm having issues with the OS X client (v0.4.3). I unlocked the wallet but can't generate an address. I received the following: 'error 400 Bad Request error after call to /wallet/addresses: open wallet/wallet.json: no such file or directory'. I've seen a similar comment by user X1235 but couldn't find a solution for this. Any idea what went wrong? thanks!

When you created the wallet, did you get a string for the password? I think some people were having troubles creating the wallet on 0.4.3. It's working in 0.4.4, which should be ready later today.

We did get a new version of the Windows miner which works correctly with 0.4.4 (0.4.3 as well), compiled again by Droghio. (Big thanks to him!): https://github.com/droghio/Sia-GPU-Miner/releases/tag/1.0.3

Do you mean the 12 word recovery passphrase? that's the one I wrote down

Yeah. It's actually 29 words. I'm not sure what's causing that error, usually if there's no wallet.json file the wallet will just make a new one. What happens if you try starting over? I can help you get any coins that were in the old wallet as long as you keep the recovery phrase. Let me know if you figure out what happened, I'm puzzled.

Help would be great, thanks! My coins are still at an exchange. I wanted to move them to my wallet and tried to generate a receiving address.
All I did after the install was to unlock the wallet. Strangely, I get the same error message when I try to lock the wallet. Pressing numerous times on the unlocked button will eventually bring up the 'enter your password' field box. Except for the passphrase I have no password (unless it's the same?). The wallet will lock regardless and I will successfully unlock it again with my passphrase. I apologize for a clumsy answer, still practicing my English..

The recovery phrase and the passphrase are the same, unlock the wallet using the 29 words and you'll be able to create addresses.

Are you using version 0.4.3? Can you open up the file directory and look for the wallet.json file? (On mac, right-click the Sia executable and select 'show package contents', then it should be in app/Sia/wallet/wallet.json).

Have you tried restarting Sia? It might also help to reboot your computer. You are seeing a strange error  Huh

Yes, v. 0.4.3
As for wallet.json, it wasn't in the above location and could not find it anywhere else. folder content:

I have restarted, didn't help. BTW, a few days ago after experiencing the same issue I reinstalled the client.

ya know, the GUI is really coming along and so many things are done right, but...

(1) The 4.3 GUI identifies itself as 4.2




(2) And it's crazy to spend 2000 hours coding... and then spend 2-3 hours on documentation (pS vs zS vs fS, etc).

(3) Expecting ordinary people to muck around with port-forwarding is unrealistic...
And opens up all sorts of security issues for people with valuable networks that are not security professionals.

(4) The "file sharing" community consists of about 50,000,000 people (Pirate Bay daily unique visitors circa 2010)...
While the "alt coin" community consists of maybe 10,000 people split into about 100 warring mini-cults.

Guess which community the Dev needs to be targeting Huh

And by "targeting" I mean build in a specific feature that will result in a Siacoin download....
Yes, baby, give something valuable away for free like Google did for many years to build critical mass...
You need to to forget about vaporware like STORJ and MAID... and get SC up to 1000 downloads/day.    

Carry on, it's great to see steady, consistent progress on all fronts.

Sia is an awesome concept. I am just glad to have been privileged to see it launch and be involved from ground floor, watching it grow even with its inherit pains.. lol It is taking on a life of its own. (and coin value has had a pretty decent floor overall that can only go up)

Taek is a fantastic dev and communicator as well. I feel the project is in good hands  Smiley we are in good hands

The project is still in beta stage: for me it is still normal than it isn't useable by non tech oriented people.
On the other hand I agree with you than we will need something more plug & play to reach the masses : upnp, possibility to host files without fixed ip ... with an user friendly GUI.
I suppose the dev team is well aware of these points but they need time ...

Upnp support is already included and you can host on a dynamic ip if you use a service similar to dyndns or no-ip.org by announcing with
Code:
siac announce myname.no-ip.org:9982

I just did a test withdraw from Poloniex into my own wallet.  I have hosting contracts working and the wallet seems to be working fine.  I made one new address and had Polo send my coins to that address.  However I end up with a Completed:Error status on my Polo Transaction list.  They are trying to fix it now.

Any ideas on why the transaction might not have worked, or anything I can do to verify the wallet can receive coins properly?


Also, how long can I shut down my wallet and not get penalized on my hosting contracts?  I'm assuming a quick restart will not hurt anything.


Thank You

It's good to see that there are still people in this thread helping to answer questions. That gives me hope for this coin in the future.

I've been watching the price on Polo since it was at 11 satoshis a little over a week ago. I finally decided to invest when I saw the price go from 14 satoshis to 19 in one day. It corrected back to 15 but I was able to get in before it went back up to 18 where it presently stands.

Good question on the shutdown? I just checked and I have 62 contracts with .78 GB used. Earnings to earn 56.62 Sia woot! lol

And I only have had Sia hosting for a day and a half now...interesting  Grin
