Update siacoin wallet to 1.3.1 and it does not work? how to fix this issue?



  • Hello everyone,

    I have the old version of the siacoin wallet.., I believe 1.2....something..., and I did purchse some new coins a few days ago..., noticed that the coin even do the transaction was confirmed never arrived into my wallet..., so I double check the address and it was correct. Next step I saw there was an updated version and the lates ws 1.3.1.., So I dowloaded and opened it and this text appear:

    A critical error loading Sia has occured: Siad unexpectedly exited. Error log: Sia Daemon v1.3.1
    Loading...
    (0/6) Loading siad...
    (1/6) Loading gateway...
    (2/6) Loading consensus...
    difficulty adjustment hardfork incompatibility detected

    Since this time I can not make it work! I have a mac pro newest version 10.13.02.., I tried everything deleting all reinstalling.., trying to install a prior version 130..., but since then the same text comes out all the time with all versions... and all downloaded from the official page of siacoin..

    Can someone please help?? I really do not know how to fix it...

    Thank you in Advance and Best Regards



  • Are you hosting?

    If not, why not just uninstall Sia_UI and reinstall? You can recover your wallet from your seed phrase which you should have saved somewhere.



  • HI,

    this is what I have been trying to do...., but everytime the above text appear when lunching the wallet...., btw it does not ask for the seed....,

  • I fixed it by doing the following steps.

    Click "Go" (You will find "Go" at the top of left bar)

    then click "Go to folder"
    then type "~/Library/Application Support"
    find siaUI folder and delete it.
    Restart Sia
    Thats pretty much I did and it worked.



  • Hi

    I was. wondering whether you have had this issue on Mac or windows. I have the same issue on MacBook Pro and don't know how to fix it. I did uninstall it twice and install it back but no results. Any ideas how to fix this problem?

    Thank you

    Maybe you can try the search function for your OS to search for consensus.db?

    If you are on v1.3.1 and you can reach the About section in Sia-UI, there is a Show Sia Data button in there. Click that and it should bring you to where is the data stored on your computer, the consensus.db will be inside the folder.
