To expand a bit on what I would like to accomplish...
I've heard recently that Duplicati (backup) has recently added the ability to backup to SIA storage. I'm the one in the family with the SIA wallet and I don't want each one of my family's to have to install their own wallet. I would prefer that we use my one wallet and have a contract for each family from my one wallet. Is this possible? Can one wallet have separate contracts (and therefore I'm assuming separate wallet addresses) to keep the storage separate?
FYI the problem is resolved now. After re-opening the Sia-UI I noticed the previous transaction was gone and my SC was still in my account. I waited till the blockchain was synchronized and then I sent my SC again. This time it went through. Hope this helps others.
I am in a similar situation. my transaction ID is 8457a103b63de68ec657ee28e89f25c7d3fc8c22b545826d0c0dc848486913eb
I cant find it on Block explorer, but the Yunbi says the transaction has been sent. It has been almost 48 hours now :(
Any help would be appreciated.
If you enter
in the console it will propably show there are no peers.
Do you have more then one computer computer on your network running sia ? For me, only one computer manages to sync. If i note the gateways from this computer, shut sia down and enter the gateways in to another computer, it will sync, but only for a limited time.
Or more simply, just have an app people can install, that creates a shared folder ( like google drive/drop box/One Drive/whatever) - and by default nothing syncs.
If people wish to sync, just let them spend disk space, CPU - or some easy mechanism to buy Siacoin directly. All from your public facing app.
Basically back to my point in OP, that you have the potential to get a load more buy-in from the vast majority of "people with computers" by presenting as a storage service, rather than yet another cryptocurrency.
