What Is Siacoin?
SiaCoin (SC), the cryptocurrency usable in Sia Network. SC is a distributed cloud storage platform, ultimately liberating unused storage space. Anyone can rent out extra space on their PC to the Sia decentralized network and get paid in Siacoin. Similarly, any user who wants to use Sia storage needs to pay Siacoins to a host.
