Cold storage?
« on: July 26, 2014, 06:47:14 AM »

What is the safest way to store BTSX in a cold storage offline? (in terms of how to generate target address, best way to send, etc.)

Very good!!! With exchanges and computers being hacked left and right, it would be great to be able to split up into chunks and store safely offline.

Give it a try:
http://wiki.bitshares.org/index.php/ColdStorage

I generated a key using the command line utility.

I then transferred 2 BTSX to that address.

Now trying to restore it following your instructions, however wallet_resync_blockchain is no longer a valid command.

I did try rescan. In any case, let's work on making this process more robust. I'm here to experiment if you want me to.

Silly me, I suppose the entire blockchain needs to be scanned for the balance...

I just did "info" and I noticed this:

 "wallet_scan_progress": "30.26 %",

I'll wait to make sure it's finished, and will report back here. May be even update the Wiki. (Not sure if I need to be an editor or what there)

Well after rescan, the balance from the cold storage is still not available. Does the account need to be registered before it can import a private key or something?
