Dry Run 3: A Game of Delegates
« on: June 20, 2014, 12:26:19 AM »

In this dry run, all initial delegates start with tons of downvotes. This means any new delegate is automatically ahead of all the initial delegates.

We will start a new thread for when we have the GUI ready for everyone to properly start delegate campaigns. This is a good chance to start positioning yourselves to succeed in the scramble for delegate positions when we launch the real thing. Enterprising technical users might start figuring out how to offer their services to non-technical users.

Let's begin!

* Step 1 **REQUIRED**: Open this in another tab   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-TOHc7I1pc

* Step 2: Wipe all your old data-dirs. Note that you might have both  ~/.BitSharesXTS  and  ~/BitShares\ XTS  - kill them all.

* Step 3: Pull latest and build.

* Optional Step 4:  If you are an initial delegate and a good citizen, do what you did before (import old private keys, make sure to wallet_enable_delegate_block_production). Details are sparse on purpose, since you probably want to skip this and go straight to 5.

* Step 5: Follow this guide: https://github.com/BitShares/bitshares_toolkit/wiki/DPOS-Registering-Names-And-Delegates

You will notice that you need funds to register your name / register as delegate. You have two options:
* import a key with funds
* ask someone nicely

This is the tech support thread. We'll open another related to delegate campaigns in the next day or two.

Edit: Blocks will be reaaaal slow near the start. Initial delegates, get online!

Your delegates were already producing blocks.. You produced blocks 2-4... O.o
Check your get_info

edit: yes you are in genesis block with old keys

You're still in top 101! ;)

Yes, you should make a new delegate if you want to ensure you stay in once lots more people make delegates

Thanks it works. BTW, it should be
wallet_enable_delegate_block_production <delegate name> true

Did the cost to register a delegate double in this dry run?

I only see one in blockchain so nobody validated it... did the wallet allow you to create the transaction and show it in your history?
