Summary

* December 14th snapshot date is approaching
* WARNING: Move your funds to your local wallet as some exchanges do not honor snapshots (i.e., Cryptsy)
* Block production in the current PoW chain is SLOW. Transfer funds now (with appropriate fee) to make sure you catch a block.
* Dry Run #2 is announced: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=12157.0


Fellow PTSers,

As the PTS upgrade approaches, in order to ensure that your stake in the new chain is honored you are advised to store your funds in a secured wallet on your local machine. BTER has privately assured us that they will be honoring the snapshot, but other exchanges (specifically cryptsy) may not. As always, the safest route is to maintain control of your own private keys.

One important thing to note is that the current PoW chain is barely producing blocks (~ 1-2 blocks per day). You only need 1 confirmation to be counted in the snapshot, but you will need to move your funds immediately to ensure that they confirm.

Is there any plans for BTER to publicly assure us they will honor the snapshot?  With Play and Music, they posted a message above the trading pairs.

BTW, double check BTER's Play allocation!
I am relatively certain that I did not leave any amounts (other than dust) on the exchange both on 11/05 PTS-wise and/or on 12/08 BTS-wise.
Yet, my account shows 'for PlayBTS_S1' in tens of thousands.

[disregard this post if you are using  smaller than 1:1 ratio]

It worked correctly for me.  I got 'for PlayBTS_S1' equal to the amount of BTS I had on bter on 12/8.

Tony, your lovely mug made the Reddit thread:

http://www.reddit.com/r/BitShares/comments/2oyflw/warning_withdraw_your_bitshares_pts_from/

Suggesting 75% for the future social consensuses % for PTS-DPOS, might have helped soften alphaBar's heart.  :)

Just wanted to mention that Poloniex will honor the Dec 14th PTS snapshot.

Will exchanges honor the Sparkles snapshot as well? Would be odd to honor one snapshot but not another happening at the same time.

One issue I see is yPool requires more than 100 confirmations before you can withdraw your funds.
All the PTS BM paid for returning the donated PTS are in their possession ATM and I doubt they will be released until the snapshot.

Oh, the high transaction fees. That's not great... do you know offhand how many blocks it's been since BM returned the funds?

less than 60

EDIT: Actually 50 confirmations are needed for the last block of these transactions.
