Clarity would be greatly appreciated.
« on: December 07, 2014, 11:00:41 PM »

Hello.  I'm a long time lurker (including Reddit), but first time poster here.  So please be patient with me.  I'm a very early investor in Bitcoin, and extremely early in PTS (since day 1, back when it was Protoshares) and I love the idea of DACs etc!  I am very appreciative of all of your hard work here.

However, I am growing more and more confused as this all progresses.  I don't think I'm alone.  I know it's the nature of the project, and you guys are still figuring everything out as well.  Cool.  I understand.

But for a long time I have felt that it would be nice to have an official step by step guide (perhaps a sticky, or better yet, something on the main Bitshares website by itself) for people like myself who need a little guidance reclaiming all of our stakes in current / future DACs.  I know full marketing of the project hasn't really hapened yet.  Maybe it already exists and I just haven't found it?  There's a lot of info scattered all over the place here.  This thread has been somewhat helpful, but is not complete.  https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=1425.0;all

I have had all of my PTS stored in my personal wallet since Day 1.  Since then I reclaimed my BTSX, and then my DNS.  I never reclaimed LottoShares as the (unofficial) project kind of fell through.  After BTSX -> BTS, I downloaded the latest BTS (0.4.24) client and my original PTS wallet imported just fine.  My DNS and BTSX / BTS wallets are registered.  But, I was under the impression that after the switch from BTSX -> BTS that I would be able to import my DNS / KeyID into that wallet as well.  Has that not happened yet? 

Wasn't I supposed to get more BTS after the dilution or something?  Should I have imported my BTSX and PTS wallet into the new BTS wallet?  I bought a few more DNS on BTER but wasn't able to get them out in time.  I hear they will be handling that switch for me (hopefully).  I just want to make sure that all the needed BTS are in my current wallet because I thought there was a BTS snapshot coming up or something and I wanted to make sure that I had all my BTS in that wallet.  I know Bitshares Music / Voting / Play are still on the way.  Are those based on PTS or BTS snapshots?  I know there are a couple of unofficial DACs like Rand Paul Coin, but I'm mostly worried about the more official Bitshares releases here.

Is there anything I haven't done that will keep me from getting all of the coin stakes that I should have from being an early PTS adopter?

I know that there's another switch for current PTS holders coming up.  Is that official?  www(DOT)reddit(DOT)com/r/BitShares/comments/2ntjq6/ann_bitshares_pts_mandatory_client_upgrade/

I'm just generally confused now.  It would just be really cool for someone to say something like "Ok, I too bought PTS on day one, and then I reclaimed them here... here... and here to get all of my entitled stakes in each blockchain".  Step 1, 2, 3.  I'd be happy to send a few satoshis or something to anyone who could give me a good / straight answer if you leave me your address.

great questions!

I am curious as well, especially about this section:

"Wasn't I supposed to get more BTS after the dilution or something?  Should I have imported my BTSX and PTS wallet into the new BTS wallet?  I bought a few more DNS on BTER but wasn't able to get them out in time.  I hear they will be handling that switch for me (hopefully).  I just want to make sure that all the needed BTS are in my current wallet because I thought there was a BTS snapshot coming up or something and I wanted to make sure that I had all my BTS in that wallet. I know Bitshares Music / Voting / Play are still on the way.  Are those based on PTS or BTS snapshots?  I know there are a couple of unofficial DACs like Rand Paul Coin, but I'm mostly worried about the more official Bitshares releases here."

Your vesting balance isn't yet available.
Import for DNS wallet is also TBD.

Thanks for the info!  So the take-away that I get from that is "Just chill, you'll be able to import those wallets later and you haven't missed out on anything yet". 

If so, I will do just that.  ;)

Thanks for your hard work bytemaster.

Thanks. Can you tell me approximately  when I can import my AGS and PTS to BTS?  since I do not want to keep so many wallets <grin>
