Be careful mining this coin. There is not working wallet for the coins.

I had to reinstall the SIA UI wallet and now the Seed and password phrase does not work anymore.
How the hell this coin can have this huge market cap if the wallet is a piece of shit.

Now I have stoppepd mining this coin because of the wallet problems.

Ok now I got it up and running by using force init command to make a new wallet and then I recovered old wallet from the old seed.

how can you check the balance on a siacoin address?

any ideas?

block explorer looks like it only lets you search transactions, not addresses ....

Currently, balances can't be checked.

Presumably the block explorer will one day be updated to allow this but it's evidently not a priority atm.

wow, not being able to check balance for an address ... that's a pain, hopefully devs can make this feature a priority.

What? a priority? Why? I don't care about how much other people have in their wallets...that 'priority feature' offers no value to the coin's purpose. If I want to know my own balance, I'll just check my wallet.

Devs, do what you have to do you're all doing a great job!  Wink

If you own siafunds in a cold storage wallet there's no way to check how much you're earning from the 3.9% fees, so it's a feature I'm looking forward to, when devs have time

Any news on the block explorer allowing address searching yet? I have 5 siafund in cold storage, would like to see how many fees they've been paid so far.

Well I don't know if it is coin related but I've been waiting for three weeks for an ETH withdraw.  One Sia withdraw failed ( only 10 sia.. ) and that was four weeks ago... still waiting

The ASIC thing is disappointing IMO. Not that they're switching to ASIC, but the fact that they take the money immediately and that it could take a year to deliver. That BTC or ETH will be worth way more than $2500 by the time they actually ship, IF they ever ship. Seems like a rip-off to me. A year in the crypto world is also an eternity and who knows if SC will still be an interesting/profitable project by then.  Undecided

Well it was really disappointing, waited for a masternode feature or something like that.

Your coin is software people, stick to software and services.

who cares about a supposed miner machine launching a year from now?

Obelisk is solid project and worth the investment, only thing that makes the decision harder is the 1 year wait period, but if people can afford that the rewards are well worth the wait. You are looking at breaking even in just 3-4 months of getting the asics.
Im looking at getting one, especially since the devs said it would ship from the US.
My profits from Siacoin can easily afford that $2500 fee


Sia is a long term project, the ones who think "A year is eternity, what will happen in the crypto world " are just looking for short term profits and IMO better off looking elsewhere.
Strong hands win for Sia, not to mention the coin was trading at less than 100 satoshi's not too long ago. There are many holding it from 50 satoshi range when it was just an empty page, just now all the weaker hands have been attracted to it and voicing their strong opinions on what is pretty much a work in progress

$2499 for an ASIC that will take 1 year to develop. That is the funniest thing ever. I seriously hope you guys are not foolish enough to actually try and buy one of those things.

Honestly, if they had working ASICs and were mining the MILLIONs of SIA they supposedly will be able to, you would see it on the network.

Take the $$ you would spend on this "asic in 1 year ( IE SCAM)" and buy Siacoin. Then next year you will say " hot dang im glad I listened to that BTCBusinessConsult guy because now I have 14,000 Sia coin and that ASIC never appeared and the price of Sia is now $0.45 each, and I only paid $0.02 for a 2000% profit".

But dont take my word for it  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

1) Which software version are you using?

2) When opening in the command line, at which step stops? Can you provide what the command line indicates?

1) Which software version are you using?
Sia UI Version: 1.0.2
Sia version 1.2.2

2) When opening in the command line, at which step stops? Can you provide what the command line indicates?

siad.exe -d "C:\Users\xxxxxxx\AppData\Roaming\Sia-UI\sia"
Loading...
(0/6) Loading siad...
(1/6) Loading gateway...
(2/6) Loading consensus...
(3/6) Loading transaction pool...

(6/6) Loading renter...
Closing host...
Closing wallet...
Closing transaction pool...
Closing consensus set...
Closing gateway..
unable to read persisted json object from disk: Sia-UI\sia\renter\contractor.json_temp: The system cannot find the file specified
.


happens after i fire up the UI after the daemon and trying to unlock wallet with seed.



Try unlocking the wallet first in the command line with the UI closed. Open siad.exe in one window, and in a second command type "siac wallet unlock". Paste your seed and if it unlocks successfully, try to go back to the UI

If that fails, delete the Sia folder you de-compressed (but keep the consensus, renter, host, walllet and so folders) and install it again from a freshly downloaded client

Be sure to download the v.1.2.2 and no other version

Hello,
reading about Sia brang up some questions.

1. Sia tries to ensure a 95% uptime of the hoster. That means the hosters computer must be 95% of the time running and connected to the internet. This doesn't apply to the average use. Does this mean there a only a few people using their computer for Sia hosting 25/7?

2. If a hoster with (a part of) my data is down, does this affect me directly that i can't access of this particular data? Or is there a back up, like saving the same data on multiple hosters to ensure that there is at least on online hoster.

3. How does the blockchain technology affects the speed of downloading my data from the cloud compared to "normal" cloud storage like amazon or dropbox? I guess the hoster with the slowest internet connection will default it, like the weakest link of the chain.

1. Sia tries to ensure a 95% uptime of the hoster. That means the hosters computer must be 95% of the time running and connected to the internet. This doesn't apply to the average use. Does this mean there a only a few people using their computer for Sia hosting 25/7?

3. How does the blockchain technology affects the speed of downloading my data from the cloud compared to "normal" cloud storage like amazon or dropbox? I guess the hoster with the slowest internet connection will default it, like the weakest link of the chain.

Good questions there:

1- The required uptime is actually 97% (95% is still risky if you don't want to lose collateral). For sure hosting is not for those that want to run hosting on a laptop or computer you usually turn on demand: you need a dedicated machine, in a similar way you need specialized gear for mining a crypto. That doesn't mean it is not for the "average" user: you can use a home server, a Minebox, or even cheaper, something like an Intel NUC. Currently the network is formed by 650 active hosts

2- Data is stored with a redundancy algorithm called Reed-Solomon. Your data is divided in chuncks and shared among 50 hosts with a 3x redundancy. That means that even if 2/3 of those 50 hosts go down, you still have access to your data

3- The blockchain is used only to submit the file contratcs, to enforce the payments, and for the hosts to submit their proofs of storage. The day-by-day data upload and download is a direct connection between the renter and his hosts. And it is blazing fast. And thanks to the 3x redundancy, even if you have a slow host, the other 2 for that piece of data will compensate
