Muse/SoundDAC / Re: Muse - Claim Balance Button Dimmed

Never mind. When I came back a few hours later the Claim balance button had been enabled.

Muse/SoundDAC / Muse - Claim Balance Button Dimmed
« on: August 08, 2017, 09:06:03 pm »
I am trying to claim my Muse into the I have imported my keys but when I get to the Claim Balances screen it say there are xxxx unclaimed Muse. If I check the box and try to claim them the Claim Balance button is dimmed. Any suggestions on how to proceed?

Thanks a lot svk. That seemed to work fine. I wasn't able to locate the settings until I looked around and found the little symbol next to my account name.

I'm having initialization issues with the latest Muse binary, so I'll keep trying. But if I can get Muse to run, it looks like the same process should allow me to import my Muse holdings.

OK. I managed to get past the initialization issues error for the bitshares2-light wallet by repeatedly hitting retry until it worked. I created a new account in the light wallet and was able to receive some bitshares from Poloniex so that part works.  But I still can't figure out how to import from my old bitshares-x json file. I have been reading, which looks very helpful but it talks about a Wallet Management Console, and I haven't been able to find it. Does anyone know how - is it still available?

Thanks. My internet download speed is pretty good but the only thing available to me is satellite and I have latency issues sometimes. So given that, is there a wallet that I would be able to use?

The last time I used Bitshares (ver. 0.9.3c) was on 11-22-2015. The next time I tried to use it, I had problems syncing the blockchain , so I never used it again.  I have a file called bts_keys.json with the same file date, so I think that is probably my exported wallet.

I want to import my old wallet into the current software, but I’m not sure which would be the easiest wallet to use and backup. I tried running bitshares2-light, but I get an error that says “Application initialization issues”.  If I go here: sometimes I get “Application initialization issues” too (Maybe because of latency – I have a satellite internet connection), but sometimes I am able to get to the account creation page. If I create an account there, will I be able to import my bitshares and NOTES balance from bts_keys.json. Are there instructions anywhere on how to do this? Would there be a better (i.e. easier) wallet choice for me? Thanks for any guidance.

Thanks for looking into it.

Yes. That makes sense. Do you know if there's any chance the MAX_LATENCY setting might be increased in a future version?

Thanks for response. After  several retries I eventually got a connection. I think may be the problem had to do with a slow internet connection as I have a satellite connection.

Technical Support / Web Wallet - Add New Websocket API

I'm trying to migrate my bitshares 1.0 wallet to bitshares 2.0. When I go to the web wallet, it says I am not connected. There is a plus sign  next to wss://bitshares/ If I click on it, I get a message that says: Add new websocket API.  Are there any instructions that explain how to do this?

General Discussion / Re: Bter has re-enabled BTS withdrawals.

The wallet is the worst piece of software I had the misfortune to use in my whole life; and that includes any virus or trojan which made its way onto my computer. I had given up long back and my BTS was lying on Bter when the hack happened. After spending sleepless nights the exchange came back and recently again disabled withdrawals. So I finally decided to give it another try, and it got stuck at 44%. I deleted and tried again and it keeps getting stuck. I restart and it goes a bit again and gets stuck again, and finally its at 57% and not moving forward.

I am done with this junk. Before anyone starts complaining about my hardware I have 4 GB of RAM and I run multiple memory intensive programs without a hitch, but apparently its no good for this. I can't take the risk of exchanges going down and me losing everything, so best to keep BTC. Maybe someday I will get BTS again when I can actually run this thing.

I started a post a couple of days ago about problems I have had with installing the wallet and keeping the blockchain synched. I love Bitshares but the frustration of trying to keep the wallet software running just wasn't worth it anymore.  tbone suggested I try this web wallet, which I did. Much more secure than leaving your coins on an exchange, and so far it's worked fine for me.

IMHO the only motivation to tag it "experimental" is that there are no unit-tests to make sure EVERYTHING works as expected. I would consider it secure assuming your computer is secured :)
I am pretty sure that you will be able to import the "brain key" into 2.0 easily.

FWIW, I’ve been experimenting with it and have made successful transfers and asset purchases. The delegate section doesn’t have any information in it, but that’s probably relatively unimportant to most people. I haven’t figured out if it stores a wallet somewhere on your PC that you can back up or whether you just have to rely on the 16-word recovery key. There’s a certain comfort in being able to physically backup your own wallet file. There’s none of the installation hassles that you have with the main client. Overall, it is very easy to use and an important enhancement to Bitshares. It is definitely what I would recommend to the average user until Bitshares 2.0 is released.

Yes, that is what I was referring to.  It works fine for me, at least for transferring balances.  But perhaps we can find out from one of the devs why it's considered "experimental".  Is it unstable?  Is it not secure?  What functionality does it lack?  And lastly, will balances in this web wallet transfer over to 2.0?  Thanks in advance.

OK. I set up an account there with a small amount of bts. It was easy to set up and looks pretty easy to use. I'll experiment with it. Unfortunately, it says it's a beta release so I'd hesitate to use it for large amounts. But at least for now, it looks like it will serve some of my needs. Thanks.

Maybe I'm missing something here, but I don't understand why this conversation is taking place considering a) there is currently an end-user web wallet available,

I assume you mean this:

From the website, it looks like it might only be experimental but I'll check it out. Thanks for mentioning it. I wasn't aware of it.

Maybe I'm missing something here, but I don't understand why this conversation is taking place considering a) there is currently an end-user web wallet available,

Have you had any experience with it? Do you have a link for this?

b) Bitshares 2.0 will launch with a new web wallet, and c)  Bitshares 2.0 will offer incentives for 3rd parties to create additional end-user wallets with their own value adds, and we know that Bitsapphire among others have already made headway along these lines.

Yes, Xeroc mentioned that above. If and when this happens and it works as advertised, I'll be very happy, but in the meantime I don't have a wallet that I can use without spending hours of time trying to upgrade yet again.

Please feel free to enlighten me if I'm missing something, but making an issue out of end-user wallet availability seems like either being negative for the sake of being negative, or just short-sighted. 

I'm very sorry if I've conveyed that impression. But unless I have wallet software that I can install/upgrade relatively painlessly, then effectively, I don't have a wallet and I can't experiment with many of the great features that are built into Bitshares. I think the frustration with the wallet software is driving away potential users. This has been an ongoing problem for a long time, and I would like to see more emphasis placed on resolving it.
