Reviews for Siacoin

  • Emin Gun Sirer on Siacoin Associate Professor of Computer Science at Cornell

    Looks like Siacoin devs soft forked their coin to gain a competitive advantage over a miner manufacturer.

    This seems wrong from every perspective: it harms coin security and seems unethical.

  • Nic Carter on Siacoin Partner at Castle Island VC and Co-founder of Coinmetrics

    Siacoin's model, while convoluted, is also a nice innovation. A portion of every contract for storage goes to founders, so developers are incentivized to enable the production of many economically significant contracts rather than just pumping the price.

  • Charlie Lee on Siacoin Creator of Litecoin

    The fact that [hard forking to fund operations] was even considered at all is a HUGE concern IMO. Developers and creators have a lot of influence and they have to be careful.

  • Riccardo Spagni on Siacoin Lead Maintainer at Monero

    Sia works extremely well and was / is not possible on Bitcoin. Even if it could be ported to work on Bitcoin, it hasn’t been done, so until that happens, it’s pointless discussing it. Admittedly their userbase is narrow, but it exists nonetheless.
