how do you transfer from bter to bitsharesx wallet?
I'm having troubles with this too.
I don't have to register a new name do I?
I have had no problems withdrawing to my registered account.
Click on withdraw beside the btsx line in your balance page and then fill out the form. You must enter your withdrawal password NOT your login password.
How do I become registered if I don't have any bitsharesx in the wallet?
Just went through this very thing this morning! See here https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=8572.0
If your account is not registered, and you need to send funds to register, you must send the funds from BTER to your public key rather than your account name.
Think of it as a typical bitcoin transaction (to an address) rather than a TITAN transaction (to a name).
You can copy/paste the public key from one of the tabs in in the client.
