Purchasing SiaPrime Funds

To purchase a SiaPrimeFund, you would need to contact a holder and arrange a purchase. There are no established markets available.

SiaPrime Funds

SiaPrimefunds earn fees hosts and renters pay (about 3.9% of a host’s collateral). SPF were distributed to holders of a similar asset on the Sia network called a Siafund. The developers of Sia hold SiaPrimefunds as a long-term method of financing development.

SiaPrime on Large Exchanges

Large exchanges have steep listing fees and minimum volume requirements. Being listed on large exchanges is highly requested and will come with time as community support and network use grows.

Purchasing SCP

As of 05/22/2019

On Crypto-Bridge

It is possible to trade any Crypto-Bridge supported asset against any other Crypto-Bridge asset. Simply click the asset name at the top right and change to the desired coin/token.

You can also flip the pair for more accuracy to more decimal places (recommended for BTC/SCP).

We are also listed on BISQ.

Claiming Airdrop

If you had a SiaCoin (SC) balance as of block 179,000, you’re eligible for airdropped coins at a ratio of 1SCP for every 5SC in your wallet. Download the SiaPrime-UI wallet and “Load a wallet from a seed” using your Siacoin seed for both the seed and the password.


Additionally, the SiaPrime team determined the top 35 largest SC addresses likely belonged to exchange wallets, with none expressing interest in distributing the assets. We subsequently placed them into cold storage and have determined it unlikely the exchanges will distribute the airdrop in the future. Thus, we expect to use these coins to further advance the project.

Roadmap

The SiaPrime roadmap is available at https://siaprime.net/#roadmap. Our target for an initial product is Q1/2020.

SiaPrime vs Competition

SiaPrime builds on the core Sia protocol and shares the core features of durability and security. On top of the protocol, we build an S3-compatible storage interface complete with buckets, classes, versioning, permissioning and more. The product offering works at scale through the use of a client installed Relayer server instance, which handles bucket and metadata creation, interfacing with the node network and repair traffic coordination. To complete this business-focused cloud offering, companies pay in traditional formats leaving cryptocurrency acquisition and custody to us.
