GNOME-Shell extension updated for Sia 0.5.1

https://github.com/pmknutsen/gnome-shell-sia

Sia v 0.5.x is now supported (note that support for 0.4x has been dropped due to changes in the API routes).

Automated backup now works a little better too, and the statistics in the drop-down menu have received a small overhaul.

I want to briefly mention that we've got a more full-featured forum at https://forum.sia.tech

If you've got questions that aren't getting answered or in general don't fit the flow of this thread, you should make a topic there. There are a couple overlapping conversations here that make it hard to be sure every question is getting answered.

Taek: It might be an idea to put in Big Letters in the header post of this thread that there is an official forum elsewhere. The Forum also notifies the Slack members so answers will be answered sooner as well.

Yes, you are identified on the network by your IP and it should be static too. If you change your IP, uploaders won't be able to confirm file contracts later and you will not be paid for used storage. Alternatively, use DynDNS and announce your host with a domain name.

Taek mention on Slack recently this may change in the future.

Poloniex is the best place to buy siacoins, unless you are looking to spend more than about $1000. Then the best place is #trading in our slack. You can get an invite to our slack from https://slackin.sia.tech

With my local ISP I had to call them and have them set a static IP address/port for the actual machine that would host. As in my case the ISP's router every 24 hours would reset all changes (if you could actually get into their box). Once done then The port stayed open. Keep in mind I had opened the ports on my personal router fine but that wasn't much help because it fed from their box so.... And it cost abut 10 bucks a month for static or Radius IP.

The developers have a plan for how to identify hosts. But for now, its all based on your IP which ideally should not change if you're a host.

I have a problem, I use a Synology DDNS (it's free) but my router can't accept that (Lynksys ea6900).  Is there a way to configure the sia app with the Synology DDNS, if not I have to stop hosting until there is a Synology app or until hosting doesn't need a static IP.

Not sure if I follow. Does the DDNS work for your Synology box? If so, I assume the IP is the same for the Synology box and the computer running Sia. Or, the Synology DDNS does not work at all, even for your Synology box?

As far as I know you must have a public IP for the DDNS to work anyway. DDNS is just a workaround for a non-static public IP so that your host can be accessed by URL.

I have received several contracts over the past few days. As it currently stands, I have 288 contracts for 5.04GB. I am showed the amount to be earned, however, nothing has actually been earned, as its still at 0. How long does it take to actually start receiving the coins? Again i've had contracts for several days now, I figured some would have started trickling in by now.

You only receive the coins when the file contracts expire. Renters pay when they upload, but hosts only get paid if they store the file for the agreed amount of time.

The default period is 6,000 blocks I think, which is about 6 weeks. So, you should start seeing coins transferring to your wallet about 6 weeks after you first started hosting files.

Renters that upload through the API are free to set their own contract period (I have mine default to 2,000 blocks, which is about 2 weeks).

The important thing as a host is to remember to keep your host turned on. If renters cannot verify you still have the files at the end of the contract period (because your machine is turned off), you will not receive the coins! In that case, the coins are refunded to the renter. Oh, and keep your wallet unlocked too!

Does a renter need an IP address to upload and store and retrieve the files?
