Source: Why is this so high and how high will future inflation be and is it dependend on anything? Thank you. submitted by /u/fatjohn1408 [link] [comments]

  • I'm creating a dropbox style app on top of Sia
    by /u/qhead on December 4, 2019 at 8:35 am

    Hey all! I have been working on an app that essentially aims to create dropbox-style cross-platform cloud storage using Sia as the storage layer. The idea for Cloudly was born because even though Sia works great as a storage solution, you can't easily get to your files on mobile phones. Currently, if you want to have cloud storage that works on Android, Windows, and Apple devices, you don't have a choice outside from picking which data-collecting company will get access to your data. Now that we have Sia, why not have something that would allow us to seamlessly store and sync any data from any device we have? It's almost 2020; if I download a video on my Windows desktop, I should be able to use my phone to watch it on TV via Chromecast, right? Cloudly will be available as a 100% free app for Android, iOS, Windows, and macOS. Linux support will come later. I want this to be a community effort so to get the ball rolling before the code is launch-ready, I decided to create a quick video tour so you can see what it looks like and how it works. Please do share what you like, what you don't like and any others ideas you have, all very much appreciated 🙂 Once the code is ready for publishing, I will open-source it. I chose to do it this way because I rather use my time to get the app to 1.0 than try to debug unfinished code for people in Github issues 😉 Right now, Cloudly does the following: all data is stored in Sia you can have automatically synced folder on the desktop, just like how Dropbox works add any file you want built-in photo viewer and video player (with chromecast and subtitles support) can convert videos, like mkvs, on-demand for devices that don't support mkvs (most phones) share files with other people (doesn't require the receiver to be a cloudly user) it creates a distributed file cache between your devices, so you don't pay downloading from Sia unless necessary it works around Sia's 40MB minimum file size so with Cloudly if you save a 1kB file, it will take only 1kB and not 40MB Watch the video and let me know if you have any ideas, questions, or other feedback. I would love to hear your thoughts! Thanks! Btw, I also made a quick website for Cloudly at so if you want updates about the project, drop your email there. You will get emails only about Cloudly's progress and nothing else. submitted by /u/qhead [link] [comments]

  • New to Sia. Not very technical. Getting ready to host. I have couple of questions.
    by /u/Dizer_Y on November 30, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    Hi all. I'm getting ready to start setting up a Raspberry pi 4 I bought for hosting on Sia network. I have couple of questions. My plan is to connect Seagate Portable 5TB External Hard Drive HDD to the raspberry pi and use it for hosting. Will that work? I don't want to buy a new monitor, keyboard and mouse. So I would like to use a PC monitor switch and use it to switch the the monitor back and forth between the raspberry pi and my main laptop. Can you guys recommend me a good product I can buy from Amazon to do that? I appreciate any assistance and guidance. submitted by /u/Dizer_Y [link] [comments]

  • Hi all. Are there plans for Sia token holders to leverage their tokens to earn more Siacoins? I'm thinking something similar to Staking the tokens and earn rewards/interest from that. That would be great!

  • Treasure Hunt! We put the key to $2000 worth of BTC on the Siacoin network
    by /u/luxordevs on November 21, 2019 at 9:36 pm

    I've been thinking about this idea for a while. Some people think storing data on the Siacoin network is not secure, so let's put it to the test! The Sia Network uses Reed Solomon Erasure Coding to split up the data and store it across multiple hosts. All Sia data is encrypted by default using Threefish, a modern symmetric cipher designed by Bruce Schneier. No practical attack on this cipher has ever been demonstrated. If you can steal my data from the Sia network, you can break Threefish encryption. The Bounty Here’s the Bitcoin wallet: It’s simple. I have uploaded the private key for this Bitcoin to the Sia network. To make things even easier, I am announcing the hosts that I am storing this data with: The tweet: The medium: submitted by /u/luxordevs [link] [comments]

    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.

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.
