Contract Accumulation



  • Why oh why is SiaUI so slow?

    I deposited 500SC. Then created allocation for 300SC (equates to about 2TB)... Go!
    It started looking for contracts 72 hours ago... found 36 so far.. but why such a long long wait?

    I'm somewhat new.. just wanting storage space really.. but am I missing something? A contract command? A stop start button maybe? Pause? A restart (which I've done 4 times already)? So slow.

    You can upload as soon as you reach 30 contracts.

    Contracts creation time are slow at this moment because of long blocktime. The blocktime will slowly decrease after about 1 week.

  • Hey thanks Sandblock for a quick reply.

    Ok just to be crystal...

    1. I pick an allocation (300SC = 2TB).
    2. Wait for 30 contracts approx.
    3. Can start upload/download because SiaUI has the contracts on some kind of autobot.
    4. I just need to make sure my 300 stays tanked otherwise I risk file deletion.
    5. And all the nibbley withdrawals are my payments for such a service.

    have I missed anything? thanks again.

    You need to make sure you launch the wallet occasionally to prevent losing your file because the "autobot" is your wallet. Your wallet will renew and make new contract if your file redundancy fall below certain level to make sure your file does not get lost because of some host going offline.

    Also, remember to backup your renter folder. If you lost that folder, you will lost access to all your uploaded data and contract.

  • Thankyou SandBlock. The whole usage is much more crystal. Cheers! Just one last question... I have restarted the wallet on occasion (no problems there) but it's been a week now and the progression bar for contract accumulation is not even half way... it looks like it is stuck at 42 (restart or not). Should I be concerned?



  • Did you end up getting this resolved? I got pretty excited to build a proof of concept at my job, but after loading the wallet and adding allowance I'm stuck at only 7 contracts for about a week. I'm hoping there's a simple solution..

    I don't rent but you should be fine as long as your file redundancy stay at 3x. New contracts are formed occasionally to replace offline host.

    Make sure you allocate enough allowance for contracts to form since you need to pay for contract formation fees. (200SC - 500SC is recommended as the minimum). Increasing your allowance will generally fix this issue.

    Thank you for that info. I was being cheap I guess while going in for the trial run. I'll up the ante and see how that goes.
    Thanks!
