Wallet overview

Get started with the official walletd software.

walletd is the best places to store your Siacoins. It is the official wallet app made by the developers of the Sia network, the Sia Foundation.

walletd allows you to store Siacoins in a secure wallet. Although walletd is launched via command line it also has a user interface that can be accessed via web browser.

Your wallet gives you access to see your balance and transaction history, and the ability to send or receive Siacoin to any other Sia user.

Here's what the walletd user interface looks like.

Your balance is at the top. This is the current amount of Siacoins in your wallet, and can fluctuate quite a bit depending on how you use Sia. If you own any Siafunds, they show up next to this.

The Transactions tab

Every transaction is broken into a few categories - the Amount, Transaction ID, Time, TX Type, and Status.

The amount of Siacoins entering or leaving your wallet.

Near the upper right corner, you'll see a button that says More. Click on this to get some additional wallet options.

View Seed shows you your seed in case you need to see it again.

Change Password lets you set a custom password for your wallet, instead of using your Sia seed. Learn about the pros and cons of a custom password.

Be careful

There are plenty of scams in the cryptocurrency space. Make sure the only software wallet you use to store your Siacoin is the official app downloaded from the official Sia website: https://sia.tech/get-started. There are some other great recommendations you can get from our community, but we can't guarantee that any other software wallet will safely store your Siacoins.
