Welcome to the Sia Docs!

Welcome to the Sia Docs, your gateway to the remarkable world of decentralized cloud storage. Whether you're a tech-savvy enthusiast or want to explore the potential of decentralizing cloud storage and enhancing data security, you've come to the right place!
Our documentation aims to provide a comprehensive source of information and serve as a beacon of knowledge for anyone interested in harnessing the power of decentralized cloud storage.
The information in these docs has been taken from several sources, primarily the previous Sia Support Center and community-driven sites like the Sia Wiki, SiaStats, and SiaSetup, and we aim to educate our community about what Sia has to offer!
