Baby Presents
« on: February 28, 2015, 05:51:00 pm »
I'm at the age where a lot of my friends are having babies. Since I studied finance in school, a lot of my friends are in this field.

Instead of giving them a stupid shirt or shoes that they will never use I thought it would be cool to give them a memory stick storing a prearranged funded wallet.

This would do two things. Give the baby a fun jumping off point for savings (I know it's different than the bonds you're Grandma gives you on your birthday as a kid) and 2. put bitshares on the radar for the parents who have an intimate knowledge of the financial world.Possibly get them involved.

However I think you can only have 1 wallet per computer. I'm not very technical but I don't see a way to do this?

Is it possible?

Paper wallets might do it

On my system (linux) GUI client creates .BitShares/wallet/default wallet.

I know that you can create a new wallet with console
Code: [Select]
wallet_create <wallet_name> <new_passphrase> [brain_key]

Code: [Select]
wallet_name (wallet_name, required): name of the wallet to create
 new_passphrase (new_passphrase, required): a passphrase for encrypting the wallet
  brain_key (brainkey, optional, defaults to ""): a strong passphrase that will be used to generate all private keys, defaults to a large random number

If you do so, you should have .BitShares/wallet/<wallet_name> folder with your new wallet.

Again, from console, close the old wallet with

Code: [Select]

and open the new wallet.

Code: [Select]
wallet_open <wallet_name>

You can choose account_type 'public_account' when register a new account with as in:

Code: [Select]
account_type (string, optional, defaults to "titan_account"): titan_account | public_account - public accounts do not receive memos and all payments are made to the active key

If you do so, you can show the balance in the account with the following command:
(but anyone else can see it if they now the account name).

Code: [Select]
blockchain_get_account_public_balance <account_name>

Don't forget to close the wallet before opening the other.
