Sia is a decentralized Cloud Storage platform that provides a marketplace for individuals who want to rent their free disk space to others who want to upload their files to the network. Sia Coin enables users to exchange value directly making it possible to sell and purchase storing space with no centralized authority involved. In this guide we going to speak about uploading files to the network using Sia coins.

After this tutorial, no outside company will be able to access or control your files, unlike traditional cloud storage providers. Since you hold the keys, you own your data!

If you don’t have any Siacoin, use an exchange like Bittrex, Yunbi, Poloniex, Shapeshift.io or Bitsquare.

Part 2: Use Sia-UI

After launching Sia-UI, you will have 5 tabs, but today we just going to speak about Files and Wallet tabs. So, “files” provides an interface for uploading, downloading, and interacting with your files stored on the network. “Wallet” provides an interface for sending and receiving money, the Sia cryptocurrency ‘SC’. (you can read the “How to use the Sia Coin Wallet (Sia-UI)” tutorial)

Follow the on-screen instructions for creating a new wallet, and save your seed/password in a safe place (or, you can read our guide about how to use Sia Wallet “How to use the Sia Coin Wallet (Sia-UI)).

Then click the “Receive Siacoin” button and send the Siacoin to that address.

Upload and download progress are indicated by the File Transfers view, and redundancy can be viewed on the files themselves.

That’s it, you now know how to storage file with Sia-UI. We hope this guide was helpful!

Sia’s code is fully open source and can be viewed on GitHub (Sia, Sia-UI).

Don’t forget to regularly check your allowance. If the entire allowance period elapses and you do not renew your allowance, your hosts will delete your files, leaving them unrecoverable.
