That's sounds about right the block height. I was going to link you to the block explorer but for some reason I am not getting that page up atm? but will post as soon as I do. There you can check all stats about SIA.

Do you have any SIA coins to test your wallet with? You got to at least upload a little music to your SIA wallet  Wink

Ok, thanks. I'm up at 5 peers now. I'll probably mine some coins later, currently I'm mining ETH and SHF on my rigs.... I'll probably buy some on Poloniex to give it a try...lol
SIA explorer

http://explore.siacoin.com/

post your wallet address in here or pm me I can shoot ya 100 coins or so lol

I'll just buy some, to help the market out....lol

How do I encrypt/put a password on the wallet? I'm lazy at the moment to look through the whole posting...lol

So, open question: What do you need from Sia in order for you to start using it to store files?


- the option to select multiple files
- a more user friendly gui (the fact that it works with most people is not an argument, I had to open ports and add gateways for it to work = not very user friendly)
- command line only for developer reasons, if you want mass adoption you don't want the majority to have access to something they don't understand. It scares them away.  Wink
- the ability to upload files larger than 500MB
- Progress: a solid team working on sia, moving forward in a professional way with enough transparency.  
- trust, if you want me to store my files I need to know or at least have the absolute impression that my files are safe. This is a beta, which means they aren't. Most people will likely only store (personal) data with a final product that has had some 'testing', has been reviewed, troubleshooted, benchmarked,...etc.
 
I will however store some data that is 'a little less important' to get the ball rolling and support this community. Community, also very important!

Keeping in mind this is a beta I know everything needed will be added once it's ready. But you asked, so...  Cool

edit: the ability to lock my wallet and make backup directly from gui instead of having to copy it out of the folder.

It is quite easy - to tell...not to make ;-)


You need to make it as easy as dropbox... but better

easy handling with all the advantages of crypto

... for me thats sounds like an incredible amount of work- but for the average user is usability the key.
look at whatsapp- nearly everybody is using it despite all the problems around and despite there are much better solutions on the market... but it is easy

I really like your attitude- asking around what people really want
Good luck!

Sorry I missed a whole string of posts yesterday.

I have to somewhat agree with nextgencoin. I have a certification in Computer Networking, specializing in Cisco Systems (Router, Switches, LAN and WAN). I can't even get the wallet to work and so I couldn't mine it, that why I'm focusing on Ethereum and the Eth clones with DAPPS. I've try all in the tutorials, read me's, open ports on my router and machine, and even turn off my firewall. The upnp needs to be added to the wallet, as much as some people will complain of security issues with upnp, but just connecting to the internet is always a chance of a security issue and anyone is naive to think otherwise.

The decentralized storage of this project need to be promoted more effectively. I like it's a working model, but that won't matter if people aren't convinced and trust the security factor of it.

upnp is available in 0.4.0, and so far I don't think anyone has reported problems with it. Upnp does not work on all routers, but having it should be a big step forward. We've also taken other steps to try and figure out why synchronization doesn't always work on the first pass, but we have the following ideas:

1. our networking timeouts are too short
2. we don't have enough bootstrap nodes
3. peer lists are not being pruned properly and some percentage of the time a node will get all bad peers

There may be other problems as well, but I hope addressing the above 3 will fix 75% of the remaining connection issues. That still leaves a few people out to dry, but we're going to keep working on it. All of these solutions should be in either 0.4.1 or 0.4.2.

Right now we have 6 bootstrap nodes, 2 of which are our own. If anyone wants to volunteer to be a bootstrap node, the only requirement is that you forward your ports. You can expect to get more traffic as a bootstrap node, but it shouldn't be a ton of bandwidth.

How do I encrypt/put a password on the wallet? I'm lazy at the moment to look through the whole posting...lol

If you are using 0.4.0, it actually won't let  you do hardly anything until you encrypt and unlock the wallet.

Commands:

'./siac wallet init'
'.siac wallet unlock'

You can lock and unlock the wallet as many times as you want:

'./siac wallet lock'
'./siac wallet unlock'

When the wallet is locked, you won't be able to accept hosting contracts, won't be able to mine blocks, won't be able to send coins around. But you will be able to view your wallet balance.



- the option to select multiple files
- a more user friendly gui (the fact that it works with most people is not an argument, I had to open ports and add gateways for it to work = not very user friendly)
- command line only for developer reasons, if you want mass adoption you don't want the majority to have access to something they don't understand. It scares them away.  Wink

Might help if you narrow it down to 1 or 2 things that are most important, but if you truly need all of them to start using Sia, then you've given exactly the feedback I asked for  Smiley

File limit is raised to 5 GiB in 0.4.1
upnp is available in 0.4.0
Slightly more comprehensive GUI available in 0.4.1 (might not be more friendly though - we could really use some help if someone has design+html/css/js experience)

The command line is not meant to be used by everyone, but the GUI is still incomplete in some ways, so people have to break it out every now and then. As we continue development, it will be needed less and less.

This is something that's going to take both time and development iteration. We've got redundancy set to '6' right now, but especially at this stage I would never recommend using Sia as the only place you've housed your data. If 0.4.1 goes well, I might suggest having 1 local copy and 1 Sia copy as sufficient.

I'm running siacoin in linux, and I'm wondering before I deposit some siacoins from an exchange, how do I backup or save my wallet?
Also, where is the blockchain stored? Is there a block explorer?
Thanks.


- Depends what version of sia you are running
- Block chain is stored in the same folder as siad
- http://explorer.siacoin.com

I'm running (Sia-UI-v0.3.3.3-beta-linux64.tar.xz).
Ah, I found the wallet file here:
~/linux64/resources/app/Sia/wallet/wallet.dat

There is 2 files, wallet.dat, and wallet.backup
Which file should I save ?

What about encrypting the wallet file, will that come in the next version?

Also, explorer.siacoin.com is down...
Thanks for the help.

ah that's a typo sorry.

explore.siacoin.com

Saving wallet.dat should be enough. It should be identical to wallet.backup. Encrypting is already a part of 0.4.0, and will also be in 0.4.1

Very legit things most users would want or expect  Smiley the easier it is to use the better, for sure

I think for starters everyone needs to introduce SIA to a friend somewhere, anyone with a pc lol, download a copy to your flash drive and install it for them if need be. Have a few coins to send them right away from your wallet to get them started even 100 coins would jump start them and have them upload some basic music files or (non important as you said) and let people see how easy it is to store data. Next full version will do much more as well.

Let them grow with it from there.  Smiley

Personally I think SIA is a really cool storage tool right now... can't wait for newer versions!

The difficulty went up, the price fell, and all the miners left. Now blocks are being mined very slowly.

When we get to height 16500, the difficult will drop again and some of the miners should come back.

In the meantime, it would really help if you guys kept mining so we can get through the next 300 blocks as soon as possible. Otherwise it's going to take a week or so.

Ya, when its cheaper to buy then to mine, always see the hash drop. Only temporary I'm sure.

I may fire up a miner or 2 to help, but everyone should at least turn on 1 miner to get through the next 300.

I suppose in this situation now, a pool would definitely pull hash rate back up.  Grin hard to balance priority's though as we understand.  Wink

question: should "siac miner status" return the total blocks mined or just the number of blocks found by the current running instance of a running miner? from my own experience it seems to be the latter as my current output shows 0 and 0 stales. however, my one block i mined 5 days ago finally showed up in my wallet balance after I gave up waiting for it to confirm 2 days ago and especially after running the miner status command a few times after I had to restart my pc and hence wallet. it went from showing 1 mined block to 0.

If you restart SIA it forgets you mined the block so you just have to wait the 144 blocks before it shows up in your wallet.

If you haven't restarted SIA the command will show you the # of blocks mined along with the # of stales.
