The BitShares Hosted Web Wallet is ready...
« on: February 25, 2015, 07:00:33 PM »

The beta web-site wallet is available.  Limit transactions to small amounts only please.

https://wallet.bitshares.org

If you want to grab a account name, it should be quite easy. Accounts are reserved on the public blockchain and are first-come first-serve... I think it will become quite useful to you as there are projects being developed based on BitShares for: voting, gaming, music. Then on the business side, SEC compliant stock offerings for companies (not just the large ones anymore).  Today, BitShares are used as money (market pegged assets), bearer shares (bitshares), and for its user issued assets (users issue there own shares).

You can register accounts with the wallet (if you send it some funds) or you may use the built-in faucet.  In both cases, the account is registered as a public account. 

For the newcomer: use a test transfer from any new source (line an exchange).  The technical explanation is: make sure that anyone sending to a public account is using a recent version of full-wallet (like 0.6.1) or using the light wallet or this hosted-wallet.  Older versions of the full client will send a private TITAN transaction instead of a public transaction.  A full-node will be required to recover the TITAN transaction should this happen.

Source code, bugs, requests, etc.. are hosted at: https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-js and https://github.com/BitShares/web_wallet

Edit: is 0.6.1 checking for public field to evaluate if titan tx should be sent? is there a documentation/discussion somewhere?

Private keys are in the browser encrypted by the password.  The keys can be re-generated from the code in https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-js ...  I'm thinking about the best way to make a off-line recovery tool, either in the Qt wallet or perhaps as a stand-alone.  So please stick to the small amount rule until we have a scalable plan B in place.

UPDATE: I'm working on light-wallet compatible accounts

Yes, it will check the field for registered accounts. But there is still a bug where sending to unregistered accounts may still use TITAN--this will be fixed in 0.6.2.

Will we ever be able to use this without an account? Then we could share links with people to show how liquid our markets are:

i.e. it would be great if this link worked without making an account:

Isn't that what the brain key is for? What role does it play?

Also, this is EPIC. It's so smooth and fast. I can't wait until the markets work :) .

Brain wallets should be a feature in the QT wallet, and you should be able to log in to the web wallet with the same brain key.
