BTSX transfer error
« on: August 21, 2014, 08:52:37 PM »

Trying to register a name 'bter' to a public key address (my bter BTSX wallet) in the bitsharesx client and getting this error"

RPC Server Error: In method 'wallet_add_contact_account': invalid account name (20017)

It's lower case, with no funny characters. What am I doing wrong??

Thanks in advance

bter is already known to the blockchain, no need to add it as a contact :)

FYI... their registered name is "btercom" (please double check from the deposit page). 

The point of TITAN / BTSX is that except for NEW users you never have to use a public key.   BTER should really remove the key from their deposit page and just use the name.

Make sure you enter the correct memo in the memo field as well.

This has confused me greatly! If I simply send it to BTER, how will they know how to credit my account specifically with my bitshares? Surely they need my wallet key?

I wasn't trying to assign a name to the blockchain, merely label an address in the client. This is not what I was going though?

Here's how (very important):

Make sure you enter the correct memo in the memo field as well.

OK I've got it. If I'd read further on BTER instead of just copying the key like I'm used to, I would have gotten this by now :)

Thanks guys
