Older laptop Sia UI not accepting seed
by /u/freedomtrainer on February 18, 2020 at 8:04 pm
Hi all! I had an older laptop with the 1.3.1 Sia UI on it. The last time I did a transaction, my sia were all showing up correctly. That laptop has just died so I downloaded the most updated version 1.4.2 of the Sia UI on my new laptop and entered my same seed. But it says it's incorrect. The same seed was working on the old 1.3.1 version, and I never set a password, so it should be my seed. Any thoughts on what I should do? I can't access the old laptop drive anymore as it has effectively died. submitted by /u/freedomtrainer [link] [comments]

Siastats.info USD on charts possible?
by /u/patthehat033 on February 16, 2020 at 8:43 pm
Hello, On siastats.info is it possible to add an overlay of the USD equivalent on the active contracts costs and similar charts? So you can see the sia cost and also what that represents in USD (or other currencies). I think this would give a better baseline for how sia is performing. Thank you! submitted by /u/patthehat033 [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.

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.

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.
