What do I do with my PTS?
« on: July 21, 2014, 08:32:56 PM »

Hi, I purchased a few PTS a while ago and let them sit in my wallet. Is there an update that I need to do? How do I acquire bitshares with my current PTS? I've downloaded the bitshares wallet and have my PTS wallet synced.

did you have them on feb. 28th? if so, then you import the wallet into btsx to claim bitshares. bitshares were handed out to people who were holding on that date. future DACs will work that way too (if you choose to hang on to your PTS), just look out for "snapshot dates."

if you were holding them on the last day of may you also got lottoshares out of them.

if you didn't have any pts on feb 28th, then you would have to buy Bitshares from bter.com or trade with somebody to get them, since the product is out now.

Yes, I moved my PTS before that date, so now I just import my PTS from my old wallet to the new bitshares wallet? So what do I do with my original PTS wallet? Do I need it anymore?

yea, keep your original pts wallet. you still get to keep your PTS.

you just have BTSX waiting for you in the new program, your private keys from that wallet prove that they belong to you.

sorry, last question. How to I import my PTS wallet into BTSX? when I select wallet type in the dropdown box I see, Bitcoin Multibit Electrum and Armory.

I haven't done this personally, but from what I've been reading, choose "Bitcoin"

elaboration: the PTS client is based on Bitcoin code.

the other options exist for angelshares donators who donated bitcoin using different kinds of wallets.

A while back I sent a few PTS to:  PaNGELmZgzRQCKeEKM6ifgTqNkC4ceiAWw

I'm not sure what happens with this now?

Since the syncing is really slow (20 weeks behind still), do I wait to receive PTS back? I remember there was something like 2 for 1 program.

Sorry, so many things happening that it's hard to follow.

Did you send your PTS to the angel address before feb. 28th (the date of the BTSX snapshot)?

you need to unlock the wallet first (i think)

try going into btsx console and doing this:

Code: [Select]
walletpassphrase yourpassphrase 120

120 = # of seconds you want the wallet to be unlocked for-

not 100% on this so let me know if it works.
