Tutorial?
« on: August 10, 2014, 03:54:21 PM »

I donated btc to ags, and now that the donating period is over I came back to see what is going on but cannot figure out how to get the AGS moved to bitsharesx wallet, and don't even know if that's where they go. I downloaded the wallet and made a username but cannot register without it being funded. Can anyone give me a step by step on what to do now?

http://wiki.bitshares.org/index.php/Bitshares-x-how-to#Attempting_a_wallet_import_to_receive_BTSX_from_February_28th_snapshot

The bottom of the list shows how to import a wallet from the gui, but it doesn't go into any detail than what is needed.  Posting where you are having problem would be helpful.

You need to locate where your wallet file is and that depends on the bitcoin software you used to donate to AGS.   (Or did you use PTS donation?)
I speak for myself and only myself.

I'm trying to import MultiBit wallet, I donated all from there. It says to put in exact path, is this the location on my pc such as C:\users\AppData etc etc? When I put a path and hit import nothing happens, it still also says network issues and catching up on the bottom right of bitshares, which I'm not sure if I need to wait for it to sync before attempting anything either.

P.S. thanks again for helping!

I got no clue about AGS but still purchased some, lol. So what can you do with them? I heard somewhere you can't trade it - What exactly are they used for? Should I import them from my blockchain address into my bitshares wallet?

Thanks in advance :D

If you purchased you AGS before Feb 28, 2014, yes import AGS to your BitsharesX wallet to receive your portion of BitsharesX.

Otherwise donate too me  ;D at soniq

No, you will receive shares in all future DACS that honor the BTS/AGS consensous

Why you guys hijack my thread, trying to get help here lol. So am I doing it right? it synced but when I hit import I get no error no nothing, just doesn't work at all.

Edit: Details> I used the path of multibit for C:\Users\MyUsername\AppData\Roaming\MultiBit etc and trying importing with file name included and not included. BitsharesX is fully synced as well.

I had the same problem. I donated using both PTS and AGS before the snapshot date. The wallet import from the PTS client worked just fine and I immediately saw the balance from it in the BitShares X client. But when I tried to import the MultiBit wallet containing my AGS donation address it would just say "imported successfully" but without any change to the balance, although the AGS explorer shows I should get 57K.

To solve this I opened the MultiBit client and selected the wallet I have done the AGS donation from. Then from the MultiBit main menu I selected "Tools" --> "Export Private Keys". From there I did an export and chose not to password protect the export (otherwise the next step won't work), which created a .key file. Then I opened this file with a text editor (I am on Windows and used notepad) and copied the private key from there to the clipboard.
Now in the BitShares X client instead of "Import Wallet" I used "Import Private Key" and pasted the key from the clipboard. I left "[X] Rescan blockchain" checked and after I clicked "Import Key" the balance didn't show up immediately but after some time the transaction scanning has been in progress. It was exactly the 57K as shown on the explorer, so everything was fine now.

I don't know whether I did something wrong or the MultiBit client import is just broken (or not working yet) but either way this is another option of importing from MultiBit. Note that after you finished this process you should immediately delete the .key file again, so you don't have your private key lying around on your disk in unencrypted form.

same goes for armory. just did it yesterday. problem is only with hundreds of private keys, because armory produces a lot of them. hope they fix armory import soon or you can import privat key in a .txt file so no manuel labor is here needed anymore.
