Sia v1.0 Launches!

  • admins

    After 2.5 years of development, and over a year of beta, we are proud to announce Sia version 1.

    Version 1.0.0 Graphical Client
    Version 1.0.0 Command Line Client

    With the version 1 release, we are committing to preserving siad API compatibility. This means that third party developers can begin making apps that integrate with the current Sia daemon and expect that as future versions of the daemon are released, their users can upgrade without worrying about breaking the plugins or alternate apps that they are dependent on.

    There are also a number of important security updates, including fixing a DoS vector, making siad more safe for miners out-of-the-box, fixing a security vulnerability in the host that would allow the renter to drain host funds for free. Some of these security issues are significant, so we strongly recommend that everyone update to v1.0 as fast as possible.

    We are going to be spending the next week observing the ecosystem, getting community feedback, and figuring out what our most important priorities should be. Some of the things that will potentially appear on our roadmap includes more guides, more business development, improved wallet interactions (instant unlocking, better seed loading, deep seed scanning), siafunds on exchanges, more physical-world meetups, and of course general improvements to the Sia technology.

    The team is looking forward to working with the community and beyond to build a better Sia and a more decentralized world.

  • Hi! I made a withdraw from poloniex to my wallet adress, I didn't get the coins yet... did i lost them? when I will get them?

    You can put the transaction id into our block explorer at - that will tell you if the transaction was confirmed or not. If it was not confirmed, you should check with Poloniex. You also need to make sure that your blockchain has finished downloading. Compare the block height of your local client to the block height in the explorer.

  • @Taek You switched the links. The CLI is the GUI, and the GUI is the CLI.

    Am I reading this correctly? To store data 10 GB "Estimated cost: 5511474 SC" which is $4,332.01?

    Clicked it anyways and getting this error:

  • @super3 definitely not. There's a bug in price estimation that was fixed today

  • @johnathanhowell Ok makes sense because it let me click the button. Still not able to upload though. Any ideas?

  • @Taek how to I know if the blockchain is done downloading, I have the same problem.

  • @foggy101 Go to the terminal tab and use the consensus command. Shows you what percentage is done. Took me about 3 hours to sync.

  • Is there a roadmap for future updates?

  • admins

    @halpmon: a roadmap will be released in the coming weeks, right now we're monitoring the v1.0 release and will be using our observations to guide the roadmap over the next 2-3 months.

  • @Taek please anounce it one week sooner, before the release :)
