A few newbie questions - wallet, minebox, mining.



  • Hello,
    I am new in SiaCoin, I bought 160k SiaCoins and downloaded Sia-UI to put them in there. My questions:

    1. Is Sia-UI safe place to keep my SiaCoins? Do I need to do something else besides saving my wallet password in safe place? I mean, what If my hard drive was damaged and SIA-Ui was deleted- Is my wallet password enough to recover my SiaCoins by login to my wallet on different computer?

    2. I downloaded Sia-Gpu-Miner and started it. It says "initializing", what do I have to do to start mining?

    3. Is minebox going to be released? If so, when will it happen?

    Thank you.

    @dbcn Sia UI is the safest place to store coins. All you need to recover a wallet is the seed(29 words). You can use it on another pc but you'll have to resync and scan. None of your files or hosting will be available on another pc.

    For the mining check out siamining.com/help/

  • Thank you @bryan for the answer. I guess you don't have any information about minebox?

    @dbcn I don't. One of their devs is in discord. You can talk to him directly.
