Windows? Mac? Linux? Do you know if the daemon, i.e. siad is running? From command line, in the folder where siad and siac are, try to run:

Code:
siac status


What does it give you?

In the folder where sia.exe is, look for siac.exe. It might be in \app\resources\Sia\. Not sure on Windows. If you find it, run the command siac status. It will give you a bit more info.

Other than that, it sounds like it could also be a firewall issue. Make sure Windows allows sia.exe to connect to the internet.

Sheeesh!!! How predictable!

Once Sia is fully synchronized you can get some free Siacoin from the faucet at:
http://siapulse.com/page/faucet

Alternatively, post an address here from your wallet and I'll send you a small amount to play with.

unlock your wallet to see any balance ... and if it still isnt there when you do - it means confirmations havent been completed yet ...

sia takes a large amount of confirmed blocks ( someone please insert how many confirms here please ) before anything is shown as 'your's in the wallet ...

Yes, I sent you some Siacoins yesterday. I am absolutely sure of that. I do not see the transaction in the blockchain, however, which is very odd. In any case, I sent some funds again now. Here is the transaction:
http://explore.sia.tech/hash.html?hash=06fb395d8d5b9a46bf64da30d7e9486f2248bed10a4d3f609ec95c24e3cddb44b7c9226e4d33

1. The estimated competitive price tends to fluctuate. See http://siapulse.com/page/network and click the "Storage Offers" buttons to see what other hosts charge. You can selected as a host even if your price is above that of the cheapest hosts. Do not set your price above 500 SC, as that limit is hard-coded and you will not be selected as host if you set your price above this.

2. Yes, your storage is announced on the network and then becomes available to any other Sia user.

Sorry, I've been MIA for Christmas because I was travelling and forgot to bring my BTT and forum.sia.tech passwords with me.

Are there plans to have a security researcher to do a code review?
The bigger players all have the means. Maybe a bounty can attract a CompSci PhD student or alum.

Eventually, yes. For the time being though, we're focused on increasing our test coverage and getting the minimum features out. Sia has been designed with a high grade of attention to detail, and strong considerations for security. I'm guessing we're a lot ahead of most projects that don't have formal security audits. We have had a volunteer security auditor check us out, he was initially impressed but did not make it through the whole codebase.


The market cap of SIA has stayed surprisingly stable.

Yeah, I've noticed that too, we've held steady at $150,000 market cap since like 3 billion coins.

#crysx

It's only mining that takes 144 confirmations. Typical spends will show after only 1 confirmation. Anything that poliniex sends should appear in 'pending' immediately, and should appear in 'balance' after 1 block.

Let me know if you are having more trouble. From what I've read, the original problem you were having was that Windows firewall was enabled, and that you had never unlocked the wallet? Knowing these things helps so that we can update our FAQ.

Thx for the clarification, but I doubt in expansion of SIA hosts with the fixed IP or dynamic DNS requirement...
much storage is available if nobody ever uses it.[/b] That's why we are choosing to focus all of our energy on the uploaders right now. Because Sia absolutely needs more uploaders, much more than it needs anything else.
What is the way/ways that you let people know of Sia's existence and capability?

Tell your friends. Tell your Twitter/Facebook/Google/etc followers. Make a buzz.

Above all: If you like/believe in the future of Sia, then use Sia!! There is still much to be desired from the Sia wallet. But, by using Sia actively you signal to hosts, developers and everyone else monitoring the network (http://explore.sia.tech) that there is activity.

Critically, as you gain experience you're in a position to help new users. Dropbox experienced exponential growth in its early days, much by utilizing social network (referrals). There's a new Sia users each day, but some leave due to simply issues with the wallet, firewall configuration etc. It is important we help these users, as each one of these early adopters could translate into hundreds, or even thousands, of users a few years from now.

Thank you. How can we see how many people are using Sia?

Guys big problem, in need of assistance :


I have wallet 0.33 beta.2 b383       sia version 0.3.3.3


I had 2500KS balance, i've sent a few times 270ks to a new wallet on another PC, from about 7 transfers only 3 made it through.

Now the problem is that the balance still shows me 2500KS and any new transfers won't work, even though at first it was showing that it sent but in reality it didn't now after a few restarts it says : Error calling /wallet/send :



Please advise.


Any ideas from the developers ? The wallet seems to lack a console ( or i can't find it ). In any bitcoin/litecoin clone a checkwallet and repairwallet should've done it.



Like I stated earlier, you need to upgrade to version 0.4.8, and then use the 'load legacy wallet' button in the UI. Sia is not a bitcoin/litecoin clone, it is coded from scratch. There is a console, it's a program called 'siad', and can be downloaded here: https://github.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/releases/tag/v0.4.8-beta

Personally, I would never save on SIA network nothing more than a THIRD copy of my files until I see thousands of hosts running.

Why? There is absolutely no need for that.

I think you have a mis-perception about what is required to keep data secure. Amazon doesn't have thousands of hosts, they put your data in single datacenter. The next version will have better redundancy information so you can see how your files are doing, but to the best of my knowledge no file has ever been lost on the Sia network. Our algorithms have improved significantly since the last release, file will be even more secure on v0.5.0.


One can't compete Amazon, Google or Microsoft using the same technology they are using. Just because of X-redundancy, storage price will be X-times higher. Unless army of unused HDD parts jumps into equation with Y-times lower price. Competitive condition is Y to be significantly higher than X. My imagination of future SIA network was massive number of small hosts.

We aren't using the same technology that they are using. Are you familiar with Reed-Solomon coding? It makes storing files online substantially more fault tolerant. Currently, we store 5 copies of the file across 10 hosts. The original file can be recovered from *any* 2 of the hosts, which means that you just need 20% of the hosts to be online when you want the file. Host uptime on our network is over 90%, so the chance that a full 8 out of 10 are going to be down is very slim. These numbers will get substantially better as the number of hosts increase, but already they are good enough to not be causing problems.

Interally, most datacenters do you 3 redundancy, by the way. Additionally, as you can see from our pricing we are able to compete on price, even at this early stage.


Updating doesn't work for the old 0.3.3.


Please tell me which are the wallet files for 0.3.3 for i am unable to identify them.

And specify, please, if there is another way of importing the coins to 4.8 wallet.


My coins were bought on Poloniex and withdrawn a few months back.

I like this coin, but the wallet is indeed buggy. Is there a wiki or something that would help deal with the most common bugs that pop up? Siacoin reminds me of Bitshares a year or so ago (that is a good thing... good tech, nice clean GUI, but it has some bugs left to work out.)
