    by /u/starlinkdev on June 19, 2020 at 5:32 am

    Finally decided to move to Sia, I am an iCloud user so I'm looking if Sia can replace it.My question: can I replicate Sia storage in the way how Apple iCloud has it setup?Backup everything on Sia and access files from anywhere, any device? Preferably I can do that automatically by default or maybe I can write an apple script for it... Any ideas, tips? submitted by /u/starlinkdev [link] [comments]

  • SiaFuse's upcoming release of two Sia based applications - SiaShare and SiaSentry
    by /u/manasivora on June 18, 2020 at 7:01 pm

    SiaFuse LLC is a company by community members CryptoHaag, Nickfost and DCreason SiaShare is a virtual desktop that allows company employees to share a singular hub of files and folders from which they can collaborate. The UI can be tailored to the company-specific branding. A few companies have already been using the Beta, and the SiaFuse team is working on adding additional features (such as folder downloads and document preview). https://preview.redd.it/jos8ktdqup551.png?width=2160&format=png&auto=webp&s=f522294055b6f1fab6198399a9aabf65d783f943 SiaSentry is a simple layer 2 application that utilizes the Sia network in order to store and retrieve security footage. While simple in description, the features of this application will allow companies to store security footage for a much longer time and for much cheaper than current providers. They have a list of multiple clients, mostly in the oil refinery and bar/restaurant space, who have shown interest in using SiaSentry. In the current economic environment, companies are on the lookout to reduce costs to remain successful. Using the Sia backend, they are proud to offer both cost reduction and process efficiency. https://preview.redd.it/rfoxnswrup551.png?width=1544&format=png&auto=webp&s=706ff0cdf7f8fe336d8860ebd381f40d2f470e2e submitted by /u/manasivora [link] [comments]

  • Coinbase Rosetta and Sia
    by /u/manasivora on June 17, 2020 at 6:08 pm

    Standards like r/CoinBase's Rosetta are an important sign of maturity in the blockchain ecosystem. Excited to see devs use it to build cross-platform applications. We're also happy that Rosetta launched with a Go SDK; it made integrating Sia with Rosetta much easier.https://blog.coinbase.com/introducing-rosetta-build-once-integrate-your-blockchain-everywhere-9b97d284f5b9 https://rosetta-api.org submitted by /u/manasivora [link] [comments]

  • Siad keeps crashing and it's causing my host score to tank.
    by /u/B1ackMagix on June 17, 2020 at 3:59 am

    I run Sia on a remote server that I don't look at for long periods of time. I have alerts signed up for but being offline is not ideal in any regard. I'm having the sia daemon crash after a few hours of running for seemingly no reason and I can't figure out. Looking at my logs I see the following 2020-06-16 14:33:34 error: panic: runtime error: index out of range [2] with length 2 goroutine 2500356 [running]: gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.revisionFromRequest(0x74f0ec114876a745, 0x90babdc636cb898b, 0xadb3c18826f0a740, 0x6a2be53bf3aa1ec0, 0x0, 0xc0047ea6e0, 0x2, 0x4, 0x2, 0xffffffffffffffff, ...) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/payment.go:252 +0x439 gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.(*Host).managedPayByContract(0xc00005c700, 0xfd64e0, 0xc0019d81e0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/payment.go:92 +0x468 gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.(*Host).ProcessPayment(0xc00005c700, 0xfd64e0, 0xc0019d81e0, 0xc00845a3c0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/payment.go:31 +0x216 gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.(*Host).managedRPCUpdatePriceTable(0xc00005c700, 0xfd64e0, 0xc0019d81e0, 0xc00a88b680, 0x0) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/rpcupdatepricetable.go:126 +0x282 gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.(*Host).threadedHandleStream(0xc00005c700, 0xfd64e0, 0xc0019d81e0) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/network.go:389 +0x5d5 gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/siamux.(*SiaMux).threadedAccept.func2(0xc00186f890, 0xc0019d81e0, 0xc000002780) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/listener.go:186 +0x43 created by gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/siamux.(*SiaMux).threadedAccept gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/listener.go:185 +0x451 2020-06-16 17:09:52 error: panic: runtime error: index out of range [2] with length 2 goroutine 31385 [running]: gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.revisionFromRequest(0x74f0ec114876a745, 0x90babdc636cb898b, 0xadb3c18826f0a740, 0x6a2be53bf3aa1ec0, 0x0, 0xc004914460, 0x2, 0x4, 0x2, 0xffffffffffffffff, ...) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/payment.go:252 +0x439 gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.(*Host).managedPayByContract(0xc001612a00, 0xfeda40, 0xc000174960, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/payment.go:92 +0x468 gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.(*Host).ProcessPayment(0xc001612a00, 0xfeda40, 0xc000174960, 0xc001643c40, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/payment.go:31 +0x216 gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.(*Host).managedRPCUpdatePriceTable(0xc001612a00, 0xfeda40, 0xc000174960, 0xc008460110, 0x0) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/rpcupdatepricetable.go:126 +0x282 gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.(*Host).threadedHandleStream(0xc001612a00, 0xfeda40, 0xc000174960) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/network.go:389 +0x6aa gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/siamux.(*SiaMux).threadedAccept.func2(0xc002542940, 0xc000174960, 0xc0000021e0) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/listener.go:186 +0x43 created by gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/siamux.(*SiaMux).threadedAccept gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/listener.go:185 +0x457 2020-06-16 22:31:40 error: panic: runtime error: index out of range [2] with length 2 goroutine 49244 [running]: gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.revisionFromRequest(0x74f0ec114876a745, 0x90babdc636cb898b, 0xadb3c18826f0a740, 0x6a2be53bf3aa1ec0, 0x0, 0xc00006b400, 0x2, 0x4, 0x2, 0xffffffffffffffff, ...) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/payment.go:252 +0x439 gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.(*Host).managedPayByContract(0xc000060700, 0xfeda40, 0xc001e9f360, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/payment.go:92 +0x468 gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.(*Host).ProcessPayment(0xc000060700, 0xfeda40, 0xc001e9f360, 0xc00222a160, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0) 2020-06-16 22:31:40 error: gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/payment.go:31 +0x216 gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.(*Host).managedRPCUpdatePriceTable(0xc000060700, 0xfeda40, 0xc001e9f360, 0xc001c408c0, 0x0) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/rpcupdatepricetable.go:126 +0x282 gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/Sia/modules/host.(*Host).threadedHandleStream(0xc000060700, 0xfeda40, 0xc001e9f360) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/modules/host/network.go:389 +0x6aa gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/siamux.(*SiaMux).threadedAccept.func2(0xc001f39980, 0xc001e9f360, 0xc0000021e0) gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/listener.go:186 +0x43 created by gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/siamux.(*SiaMux).threadedAccept gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/[email protected]/listener.go:185 +0x457 now I have no idea what's causing that or how to fix it.

  • New to Sia? Start here!
    by /u/sia-steve on April 2, 2019 at 2:53 pm

    Welcome to /r/siacoin! Thanks for stopping by. What is Sia? Sia is a decentralized storage platform secured by blockchain technology. The Sia Storage Platform leverages underutilized hard drive capacity around the world to create a data storage marketplace that is more reliable and lower cost than traditional cloud storage providers. Your data is sliced up, encrypted, and stored on nodes all across the globe to eliminate any single point of failure, and ensure highest possible uptime. Since you hold the keys, you own your data. No outside company can access or control your files. Who makes it? Sia is open source and development is held on GitLab. The Boston-based Nebulous team are the core developers of Sia, but dozens of individuals have contributed either to the core code or apps built on top of the platform. About r/siacoin /r/siacoin is an officially endorsed subreddit, co-moderated by community members and the Sia team. Relevant topics here include announcements of project updates and third-party applications and services, questions about the Sia protocol, network, software, and more. This is a large community, and our rules are structured to maintain quality. You're free to have any opinion you want as long as you do it respectfully. Just learning the ropes? You'll want to get started with Sia. Whether you want to store Siacoin, upload files to the decentralized network, or sell your extra storage space, you'll need to download Sia. The only official apps are Sia-UI and Sia Daemon (if you like command-line), available from the Sia website or the Nebulous Labs GitLab page. We don’t recommend depositing funds into Sia wallets from any other sources. No other wallet is officially supported, and there are several fake wallets that steal user funds. The whole point of Sia is data freedom, so get started on your decentralized journey by uploading files to Sia. Or just learn why we have our own coin and blockchain. For advanced users and developers In addition to siac - the command-line set of controls for Sia - you'll want to check out our amazing Sia API Docs. We have a hardware wallet implementation for the Ledger Nano S! It's currently designed for technical users, but we hope to make that much simpler in the future. Check it out. Exchanges Exchanges occasionally experience technical issues with their Siacoin wallets. Always contact the exchange first in case of exchange wallet or transaction issues. See a list of exchanges that support Siacoin here. Spoiler alert: there's a lot of big ones. Stay updated There are a ton of great ways to get the latest news from our team. We publish #announcements in Discord, weekly video updates, and regular blog posts. If you need help Posting here is welcomed! Most answers are just a Google search away, but we also have an extensive official Support Center. Other FAQs have been compiled in the community-driven Sia Wiki.

What is Siacoin?

Siacoin was launched in the Summer of 2016. It has a unique goal in that it aims to use cryptocurrency blockchain technology to create a decentralized cloud storage platform. This would allow for the storage and transfer of data around the world with no servers, no trusted third parties, and no signups. The Sia platform is powered by the Siacoin cryptocurrency which allows for a data storage marketplace to form that is, in theory, more robust and lower-cost than normal cloud storage providers.
