Your initial contract will have a defined length with the hosts, but upon expiration that will be renewed in order to keep your files. . Quite clever.
I see. Can I choose the contract length? Also do I need to open the client to renew the contract? As a user I would like to have the contract renewed automagically as long as there are funds in my wallet without needing the client.
I'n not sure how you would operate host/renter separatly, and why you would want that.
For instance, I could have one instance in my home computer (renter) and another one in some server (hosting). I would want them to be the same wallet so that the hosting earnings can be used to pay the renting cost without sending coins between wallets. Does that make sense?
OK... that requires some deeper insight I guess..
Large number is good or not?
but to have the scoring described is key to better understand how things find their optimum I guess - an documentation I can broswe??

@nemo thank you so much, I was finally able to restore my wallet with this.
Is there a way to set a custom password/passphrase when restoring a seed with init-seed?
Also why does Sia-UI corrupt so easily? Often it freezes and doesn't want to close and when I kill it it's as if the program damaged after that as the syncing doesn't appear in the top right corner and none of the buttons work. I have resorted to keeping a copy of all the files that I copy over if it corrupts haha.
Thanks again for the instructions, don't know what I would have done with your post.
Hey, sorry for taking three days to get to this. This is a fairly common error and unfortunately it's pretty damaging. When your machine has a hard poweroff while getting a new block, sometimes you can lose your data. In this case, your host files got corrupted :(
To fix it, you will have to go into the folders manually and delete the host. Unfortunately, this means that you will lose any contracts.
People running the current version can avoid the bug by not doing a hard-poweroff, especially Windows users are vulnerable.
A bad actor could not possibly buy up enough masternodes as the cost increases exponentially in the process
As the cost of masternodes go up, you're right this would be more difficult. And that's a good thing! We are going to have to agree to disagree on this point though. Maybe I'm just paranoid, lol.
I’m so glad I came to this forum. It’s made me realise how closed minded the devs are.
By the way, I'm not a Dev of Sia, so I hope you're not thinking I'm speaking for the team. Just my take on it.
I have to disagree with you about the developers here being closed minded. I have not had that impression at all.
I forgive you for getting that wrong, but Sia definitely aims to be decentralized in government. That's why we chose a PoW blockchain. Realistically, today, the Nebulous team has full control over Sia's future. But that's because the Sia network does not work very well yet, and any network without our ongoing development effort is going to fall apart. Once Sia is standing on its own two lets more solidly (it's getting closer every release), then the community will have a real ability to reject hardforks or protocol changes that we try to push onto the network.
Oops, my mistake! You're right, I was talking about how Sia appears now, and as you said, "today, the Nebulous team has full control over Sia's future." And I don't have a problem with that, I understand that's how things need to be while the network is being created. Good to know the goal is decentralized government.
