Testnet is live. There's a web UI, which is much nicer than a command line although it's still pretty bare and you can't do a whole lot. But you can:

+ send money
+ become a host
+ upload & download files
+ mine

 Cheesy

If you would like to join the minimal-and-buggy testnet, send me a pm.

Over the next 2-4 weeks we'll be adding a few features to the UI, but mostly increasing our testing and security.

Now that the Sia network is up and running even though it's a closed beta you could narrow down some specs for future Sia mining rigs.
There should be a whole section about sia storage rigs.

I think our POW algorithm is going to be blake2, but I wouldn't buy any asics/gpus yet. As for storage rigs, we should probably create a forum that we open alongside the open beta. I've seen on the storj irc that you can get large rigs for around $46/TB, but I think that those rigs are actually designed to be much higher tolerance than you need on Sia. You might be able to push the price closer to $35 or $40 per TB.

smaragda was asking about VPN hosting.

Right now, and for the near future, you're going to need port forwarding to be a host, and really you should have port forwarding if you're going to be a miner (otherwise you'll be mining at somewhere around a 20% reduced effectiveness).

But we've figured out a way to make port forwarding unneeded. It's a bit complicated and more than we can do for the immediate future - there are other things we want working first, but eventually we'll be able to have mining and hosting while behind VPNs. The cost to our current solution though is that it's easier for you to be censored (as a host, but not really as a miner. Worst case you'll reduce back to 20% reduced effectiveness).

Maybe as we keep thinking about it and reading about it we'll get better solutions. And again, the stuff we've got right now isn't going to be ready in the next few months, just wanted to let you know that there's at least 1 existing solution for people to host without using port forwarding.

The current target date for the open beta is Jan 16th. We've actually open sourced the new set of code already, you can see it on github.

It seems that there is a progress on quorum based crypto mechanism - https://nxtforum.org/news-and-announcements/(ann)-jinn/msg147031/#msg147031

Maybe you guys are interested in it.

Yes. Jan 17th

In all seriousness we're pretty close to ready. We've got a nice interface this time too, thanks to our new intern Seve. We've committed to not sleeping until we're ready to go but midnight seems a bit optimistic.

Okay, it's done. And by that, I mean the codebase is at version 0.2.

But we're really exhausted. We'll put up the webpage tomorrow and pass out the url and get on IRC, etc.

Unfortunately, things still don't work very well. But I think this time around you get a better idea of what stuff is going to look like when we release. Things really only work well right now if you are actively mining, and stuff like uploading and downloading can be slow and not always work. Errors aren't always terribly useful, and we haven't tested it on Windows yet but it should work nonetheless.

One of the more exciting features is updates. Now we can push updates to the client and you'll get a notification on your screen asking you to upgrade to the latest version. That'll be pretty sweet.

Looking forward to making the announcement. And I'm thinking that 0.3 will be released on March 31st.
