Is the project no longer developed?

Of course is being currently developed. The core team has hired a new developer and a community manager. Beta versions of 1.3.1 are being tested with HUGE improvements for the renters, like increased reliability or the ability to recover the files of your rented space only with the recovery seed of the wallet. Many more interesting features will come in 1.4 by the end of the year, like a UI revamping or file sharing. Check the roadmap: https://trello.com/b/Io1dDyuI/sia-public-roadmap/

The community of developers keeps developing apps in top of Sia, like two new file sharing services that use the Sia network (a third one very soon), a new mining pool that donates to the developers (mining.luxor.tech), a Sia distribution for Raspberry Pi or my own project SiaStats.info . Integrations with Minio and Duplicati are ready and working. Check this update from this week, for instance: https://blog.sia.tech/sia-community-update-october-ecf673f41e96

Btw what is SiaFund? Is it anything new?

SiaFunds are the second token of the Sia network, and have been around from the very beginning. Their holders receive a dividend of the 3.9% fees charged on every file contract signed. It was an instrument to fundrise the project and keep the dev team incentivized to increase the adoption of Sia. Lean more about SFs here: https://siawiki.tech/wallet/siafund

I'm still holding a lot of Sia so I hope it turns around.  It's been awhile since I last tried the software and glad I held off buying lots of storage hardware to host peoples files so far, but will re-visit it soon.

Well, I am one of a lot of people that are still holding SIA since when I bought them.
At the moment I am not satisfied about the price, I bought It when it was very high unfortunately.
I think the company should burn many tokens and give the possibility to reduce the supply and let the price be higher.

That is impossible. Nebulous, the company of the core dev team, only pre-mined 100 blocks of Sia (we are currently at block 128000) and they control less than 1% of the total coins in circulation. No burning of their coins could affect the price.

All other coins and I mean ALL of them have been going up and down, Sia on the other hand has been mostly going down and down and furthermore down. Their is a reason it is going down and I am sure the people behind SIA is aware of it. I too got into SIA at a bad time and have 1M+ sia holding forever, 1$ and I will be a millionaire but never, I doubt SIA would touch even a 1B! Terrible investment choice!

Now is the time for making a decent investment in this coin. Most people buy overpumped coins and then complain for excessive losses.
Couple months ago price of 1M SC was over 8BTC and now it's only 0.6BTC. So, common sense would be to double your position and wait for next bull run.
Then, if everything turns out OK, you'll break even with your previous position and make XBTC with your new investment.
Dumbest decision would be to sell now those coins and take that huge loss.

When everyone is selling, it's time to buy  Smiley
Market cap of SC is 100M, very low.
Buy now or miss the train, especially with the roadmap.

Majority of all Alts trading on Polo has taken a big hit. This is what happens when BTC takes such a run. To try and single out SIA is unfair. Right now BTC is KING, either sell your SIA or quit crying.

Am I spamming? Report me!

It is really shit coin. Do you get any evidence about its platform in reality usage or it only existed on whitepaper? Please save your money, stay away from that shit coin.

I think you should read a bit more about a coin before claiming that a coin is juts a whitepaper and is not being used. Just take a quick look at https://siastats.info : The Sia storage network is currently offering more than 3 Petabytes of storage, and currently holds more than 70000 active file contratcs

I think most of the Siacoins are owned by other investors, so dev cannot have control over the price. Sia begins at very early days, not a lot pre-mine

I want to buy SiaFunds where can I find them and how much?

Check either on the Discord of Sia in the #siafunds channel for OTC trading or on Bisq (https://market.bisq.io/?market=sf_btc).They have been trading for 2-3BTC in the last months

Do you guys know a way to make the windows client sync faster? Maybe I'm missing an update or maybe I can make it accept more connections? I don't open my wallet that often but let it sync every now and then.

Try with a manual download, AKA bootstrapping: https://siawiki.tech/daemon/bootstrapping_the_blockchain

Huh Any new news on Sia? Can you also stake sia in the wallet?!  Huh

Update from yesterday: https://blog.sia.tech/sia-community-update-october-ecf673f41e96 . As they have already answered you, Sia is not Proof of Stake, it is Proof of Work. More info about why here: https://siawiki.tech/about/pow_vs_pos



Thanks for the information, was and interesting read.
This is amazing that there are such community members who can create things,  special thanks to a guy who developed a website called SiaStats. Helpful  resource for seeing a variety of info from the Sia network like the number of daily transactions, total number of contracts, and more.Recommend to check.

I think it was Hakkane himself you developed SiaStats. Props to him. It's a very interesting, informative and good looking website. I think there are quite many statistic lovers behind us who really appreciate sites like this.

Really? Hakkane himself? Why do you think so? I totally agree with you, very good resource, I wish most project had the same, so I'm really waiting for the moment when Sia will show real price, as not I think it is very underestimated.

Yes, I checked it. He wrote following comment some days ago. As far as I know he isn't even a dev or isn't associated with the dev team in any other way. Just a fan of the product Tongue
 
It is a big pleasure for me to introduce you the result of my efforts during the last weeks - https://siastats.info , a website full of charts, tables and metrics about the Sia network. Mining pools distribution, file contracts number, cost and size, average pricing of storage, transactions volume, indexes of hosts centralization… I created it for the community to have a tool for monitoring the health of Sia and for Sia-related companies or individuals that need charts to promote the use and adoption of Sia. Charts can be used without any restriction for any purpose (please just cite the source).

As you'll see, there are plenty of interesting parameters in Sia aside the market value. I encourage you checking the increase in the number of daily contracts (https://siastats.info/new_contracts.html) or the current average pricing for storing data in Sia (https://siastats.info/storage_pricing.html) (no competence can offer these pricing).

During the next weeks I’ll keep making improvements in the design, usability (right now it is not mobile-friendly) and I’ll add more contents. Please feel free to share it around and making comments!

Heh, nice, thank you for the information, quite interesting, that a person who is totally not connected to team and not dev is doing such great job, amazing. I'm impressed.

Today I have realized that my decision to invest in SiaCoin was wrong.
I mean my entry point was the mistake. Unfortunately, my biggest investment ever was in SiaCoin.

I realized when I checked my portfolio today after long time.
-89% is the lose currently I am digesting.  Sad
I am not getting any hope in price increase sooner.  Cry

Btw what is SiaFund? Is it anything new?

I bought SIA at 380 sat
regretting myself. but hodl this coin and wont sell for loss

"even moths". Sounds like someone spoiled with fast winnings Cheesy
In these opaquely crypto times good projects get overlooked. But when the shitcoins begin to fall down, projects like Sia will rise.
