no reason anymore siacoin company out of business, the news we see before is mere politics.

If the "siacoin company" (Nebulous) is out of business, why on the GitHub repo of the project the authors have merged 9 pull requests, and closed 15 issues among other coding activity?  Roll Eyes Just the new developer hired one month ago (Chris) added 4000 lines of code this week

<<Development update for week of November 5, 2017
The Sia team has contributed to 6 repositories since Sunday Nov. 5th.  Most of the heavy development work was focused around the new writeaheadlog and pages repos.  Chris led that effort with over 4,000 lines of new code committed and merged.  Keep up the good work Chris!

Luke has made excellent progress integrating the new writeaheadlog and pagemanager (pages repo) into the Sia codebase.  Development is ongoing and must be completed before 1.3.1RC2 is released.

David spoke over the weekend at ScalingBitcoin 2017, you can view his talk here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=8352&v=3pd6xHjLbhs

Luke, David, and Ava continue to make incredible progress in the backlog of Pull Requests and Issues.  Across the 6 repos updated this week 9 PRs have been merged, 15 issues closed and many more labeled, reviewed, and commented on.  This week also marked the first full week the Sia team had an on-call person who was available via Discord for community questions, code reviews, and general Sia discussion.  Thanks to mtlynch for the on-call suggestion!>>


People are going to come here and fud because they live miserable lives. Pay it no mind...

Sia is probably No.1 when you look at coins that lost most of the price value.

Sad, nice project though.

Will y'all quit talking about the damn price drop. Either sell and move on or hold. We all know the price has dropped. Every other post doesn't have to keep saying the same shit over and over!

You are right sir, but the price droped a lot.

You're kidding, really. Grin Grin Grin Grin

Everyone who is in shock here. Invest in another coin.
But don't be crying if you see that the faithful investors are make big profits because that's just what's going to happen.

I think StorJ is one, but AFAIK it does not support cryptocurrency payments but only FIAT (USD),
 so it's not suitable for anonymous file storage.

Filecoin wanted to be a competitor, but i don't trust it as it has no public code repository so it's like saying it's not open source.

Does the project cooperated with some well known enterprises? the storage market is a hot market, but there are already many big whales in it, so what is the market plan?

Two weeks ago an arrangement was made with the RNDR so they'll use the Sia storage network for storing their rendering projects of their project. Aside that, the team is right now focused now on increasing the reliability and scalability of the project, so I don't think it is the moment for marketing. I guess that will come next year.

Has Sia still been developed recent months? Have you ever use Sia services i  real life? thank you all.

This question has been answered 2 or 3 times in the last 2 pages of this thread, please next time check the last pages before posting. It is actively being developed, this is a report of the very last week's progress:

<<Development update for week of November 5, 2017

Aside that, the service has been working for 2 years and currently the storage network consists on 3.3 Petabytes of available storage across more than 850 hosts. It holds 105TB of data. This is the growth of the file contracts in the last 6 months:

I added Siacoin to the Cheddur app (https://www.cheddur.com/) to allow new users to learn about Siacoin and join the community. Cheddur allows you to link wallets, exchanges, and other services that support SC so that new users can easily get started. You can also review the project and post your SC addresses on your profile to receive tips / payments / donations in SC from other users Smiley

Can others from the community please review the profile for quality and help me add supported services? The more active the Siacoin profile is (via user reviews and addresses), the higher it ranks in search results and the more likely newcomers are to discover the Siacoin project!

Would be great.

For now i am only skeptical about one aspect: storage price per Terabyte may be lower  than GDrive/Onedrive/etc. by 90% , ... but what about bandwidth price?
I have  briefly read that a Sia renter must pay bandwith as well, while S3,GDrive etc. don't make you pay for it , right ?

Or do they have "practical" limits they don't declare but are actual.
I.E. They promise you unlimited traffic but in practice if you overcome a certain limit like 1TB/month then they will cap your transfer speed to 50Kbps for example.
We should define these variables to make a proper comparison

Where have you read that? A lot of people is coming here with the exact same two questions. I am wondering if maybe someone is spreading FUD elsewhere about Sia not being developed anymore or not being functional...

Scroll up 5 posts to my previous post and you'll find answers. Sia is indeed very actively developed, you can check last week's report in that previous post or the GitHub. Currently the Sia network consists on 3.4 petabytes of storage distributed among 850+ hosts, of which 105TB are currently in use https://www.siastats.info/hosts_network.html . I am personally storing almost 1TB of files on Sia. There is a scoreboard where users can voluntarily submit their logs to promote "a competition" to be the top uploader: https://rankings.sia.tech/index.html so as you can see real users, real people, are using the Sia storage.

For now i am only skeptical about one aspect: storage price per Terabyte may be lower  than GDrive/Onedrive/etc. by 90% , ... but what about bandwidth price?

Oh, no... Amazon S3 indeed charges for downloading data: depending on the mirror, between $10-$20/Tb https://aws.amazon.com/s3/pricing/ Compare this with what Sia costs: 13 cents per TB for uploads and 10 cents per TB for downloads: https://aws.amazon.com/s3/pricing/ This is 100x less currently

Final costumer products might have apparently "free download" but in the end as you say there are caps. Enterprise clients don't have access to free plans and pay outrageous bandwidth costs on any traditional storage solution

You're right.
For example Google puts limits without stating it anywhere.
