Problems with bootstrapping the blockchain

  • I can't bootstrap the blockchain.
    I tried 3 or 4 snapshots - every time there is an error.
    A couple of times the error read: "panic: Consensus change series appears to be inconsistent - we are applying the wrong block.", and today the error reads "panic: page 891091 already freed".

  • Am I the only person who gets such errors?
    Today I again downloaded blockchain snapshot from and checked both signatures (of the compressed and the uncompressed file) and again I got an error:
    A critical error loading Sia has occured: Siad unexpectedly exited. Error log: Sia Daemon v1.3.2
    Git Revision 72938f5

    @okub Try deleting your transaction pool folder and restart Sia-UI (completely quit sia-ui from the system tray icon before modifying any file)
    Transaction pool folder location: %APPDATA%\Sia-UI\sia

    Find me on the Official Sia Discord.
