When I was ignorant in all this stuff, I sent my money for my Keyhotee founder id (Brent.Allsop) from coinbase, so do not have the private key for that.
I'd now like to claim the brent-allsop name that I see out there, and start using it, so how can I claim this?
You do NOT NEED the private key for your keyhotee founder ... you need the ADDRESS YOU SEND THE MONEY TO .. that address is you 'founder code'.
in keyhotee you need:
1) your registered name
2) the corresponding founder code (which is a PTS ADDRESS!!!)
Your name (first and last) together with the brainwallet are only used to deterministically generate a private/public key pair for keyhotee. ...
These data you will need to import your keyhotee id into BTSX (or any other snapshot)
alternatively: the latest keyhotee git hub version allows to export the generated private key directly so you only need to wallet_import_private_key in the bitshares_toolkit ..
I'd say: go and try to get your account validated in keyhotee .. once it is in there you can also register in on the btsx blockchain
