If you enter
in the console it will propably show there are no peers.
Do you have more then one computer computer on your network running sia ? For me, only one computer manages to sync. If i note the gateways from this computer, shut sia down and enter the gateways in to another computer, it will sync, but only for a limited time.
Or more simply, just have an app people can install, that creates a shared folder ( like google drive/drop box/One Drive/whatever) - and by default nothing syncs.
If people wish to sync, just let them spend disk space, CPU - or some easy mechanism to buy Siacoin directly. All from your public facing app.
Basically back to my point in OP, that you have the potential to get a load more buy-in from the vast majority of "people with computers" by presenting as a storage service, rather than yet another cryptocurrency.
Bitcoin is the most popular crypto currency at the moment. Bitcoin created a lot of noise around. I intend to buy bitcoins. I read a good article about bitcoin https://bitcoinbestbuy.com/credit-debit-card/ , I advise you to read this article.
I also want to hear recommendations about the purchase
experienced people. How much money can I earn on Btc? I still didn't decide whether to own the bitcoins.
@whoami It isn't decentralized storage that is the goal. Decentralized (Read secure) everything; so using a central currency (based on a common encryption) is bad mojo. Additionally: insert lots and lots of other reason.
