  • Announcing our SEC settlement for Siafunds (no action against Siacoins) + AMA
    by /u/zherbert on October 1, 2019 at 2:21 pm

    Announcing some significant news that we think will be good for the Sia network. We entered into a Settlement with the SEC for our 2014 sale of Siafunds (our revenue-share security token), and the SEC took no enforcement action against Siacoins or any current activity on the Sia network. While we are disappointed that the SEC chose to take action with respect to our relatively small offering conducted years before we had the benefit of guidance, we are pleased at how the Sia network fared under such intense regulatory scrutiny – and that after a thorough investigation, the SEC asserted no claims regarding Siacoins or the current operations on the Sia network. You can read the full press release at and our FAQs at I will be spending time here throughout the day to answer any questions you all have! submitted by /u/zherbert [link] [comments]

  • Concept for a Sia-supporting business: Siacoin credit card subscription with anti-fraud Bitcoin deposit
    by /u/jav_rddt on September 30, 2019 at 3:13 pm

    I have this idea for a service that I occasionally toss around in my idea and would like to hear the Sia community's take on it. Crypto unfortunately still lacks a common standard for a pull-based payment method. I don't really want to go around every month and actively fund every crypto-based service that I pay for. This is especially true for Sia, because if I forget to add funds, then my files are at risk. Ideally, I'd like it to automatically pull from my wallet within some limits that I set. I think within the Ethereum ecosystem there are some approaches to this, but nothing yet that is really catching on, from what I can tell. So it seems to me the more practical near-term solution is to try to somehow get my Sia storage cost to appear on my credit card. But how to go about that? I could use or They bridge my credit card to Sia for me - great! However, the safety of my files now depend not only on Sia, but also on the health and competence of some random startup. That's not an attractive option for me. What is needed, it seems to me, is a service that takes my credit card and just sends me siacoins every month. Maybe it would also be able to watch my Sia wallet and automatically top up to a certain amount. The big problem of course is fraud risk. The moment you take credit cards and give out hard-to-trace digital cash you become very interesting to fraudsters. What can be done about this, if you are not a big player, like Coinbase, with a fancy anti-fraud department? My proposed solution: Require a Bitcoin deposit. True, this takes back some of the convenience. But among all cryptocurrencies Bitcoin is comparatively easy to acquire and it would just be a one time thing. After the costumer builds some history, the deposit can be sent back or turned into more siacoins. Could the fraud risk be further reduced by the service not sending me siacoins but fully funded file contracts instead? I'd like to learn more about this option. Is there an easy way for the Sia daemon to import those file contracts on a continuous basis? Do I need to worry about the service retaining some kind of control over those file contracts that might interfere with my ability to use them? What are your thoughts? Too convoluted? Or could you see yourself using a service like this? submitted by /u/jav_rddt [link] [comments]

  • Now you can obtain a csv file with all your transactions converted to local currencies in SiaStats
    by /u/aerrejon on September 29, 2019 at 5:39 pm

    I added a new feature to SiaStats Navigator (the blockchain explorer of SiaStats) that I think will be useful for many users. Now you can download the transaction history of any given address (or of any number of addresses you search as a batch) as a .csv file with the Siacoin amounts transformed automatically to the currency of your choice. You can select among 25 different local currencies, and the rates used will be the exchange rate at the time the transactions were made. Just search an address as you usually do, and above the transactions list you will see a box where you can select the dates range you want, the currency you want the values on and a checkbox for showing just incoming transactions (useful for example for a miner that just wants to get a list of all the mining pool payouts). Sia wallets are composed by multiple addresses, all pointing to the same balance (wallets can easily get to thousands). You can get this same report for the whole wallet if you introduce the list of addresses on the second tab of Navigator. Amounts transferred internally between two of your addresses will be removed for clarity (only the transaction fee will be displayed as an expense in this case). Just remember that as Sia consolidates funds constantly into new addresses, a list of addresses you use today will be outdated at a future date and you will have to get a updated list on Sia. I hope this feature will be useful for many use cases: A miner that wants to report his income to tax agencies, as the gains get transformed to the FIAT value of the day they were received A host in the same situation: his locked collateral will show as an expense, same as the payouts will show as an incoming transaction A renter that wants a financial report of how much he has spent between two dates Previously, searching addresses in batch was limited to 1000 addresses, but thanks to some scalability changes I made (part of an undergoing complete revamp of the Navigator code), I have risen it to 50 000 addresses. Similarly, the cap of the host contracts report tool (third tab of Navigator) has been risen to 50 000 contracts. There is no real performance limit here (it takes now less than 1 second per 1000 queries!) but I put some sort of limit to avoid abuses, that also should be enough for everyone. In any case, if you need to input even more addresses, just let me know. And as usual, using this feature is free, but please consider leaving a donation if you find it useful: bde3467039a6d9a563224330ff7578a027205f1f2738e1e0daf134d8ded1878cf5870c41927d submitted by /u/aerrejon [link] [comments]

  • Why would a VC invest in Sia?
    by /u/userisauser on September 27, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    I don't mean that as a jab at Sia or anything. I just don't understand the ROI. Is it really just the mining rigs? submitted by /u/userisauser [link] [comments]

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.
