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 a typical Sia-UI wallet 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 transactions is broken into a few categories - the Amount, Transaction ID, Time, TX Type, and Status.
In this example, you can see three transactions.
Amount. The amount of Siacoins entering or leaving your wallet.
Transaction ID. Use these to look up your transaction in a Sia blockchain explorer. The transactions IDs are shortened, but you can hover over them to see the full ID. You can also copy and paste while you do this.
Time. The date and time the transaction was made.
TX Type. The type of transaction that took place. Possible values are Siacoin, Siafund, Contract, Proof, Revision, Block, Defrag, and Setup.
Status. While your transaction is confirming, you'll see 0/6, then 1/6, and so on. Once you reach six confirmations, you'll see the green check mark like above and your transaction is considered confirmed.
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.
