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.
