So I decided to grab most of the BTS finally. I find what I believe was my last wallet. It imported account names but very few BTS. Something is wrong.

Most of my AGS was donated post BTSX sharedrop. They were all out of my PTS wallet. I do have some PTS wallets sitting around, but this is like a days of headaches just to maybe get what isn't all that much $$. Is there any path forward from here ? Previously there was a command to generate forgotten keys. Does that exist in 2.0 ??

Kinda funny.  The DEX seems to work fairly well. At least when I was using it for ETH crowdsale tokens, but I no longer see people pushing BitShares...

Although with these IOU/gateway system, I'm not sure it solves the core problem of exchanges, but more to the point it appears people have more or less given up.


Technical Support / brainkey in wallet is currently broken.
« on: June 01, 2016, 09:43:59 pm »

So at one point I made an account. I guess I didn't "backup" the web-cache because I'd never heard of backing up a cache ever. I thought it would back it up so I didn't rely on the web-service, when it actually backs up my web-cache.

 I think I understand it now.  Your username + password is not sufficient if you clear the web-cache?  Is that true?

Regardless I decided to go with the brainkey.  So after digging the pictures of the brainkey off my phone  I try to restore via brainkey. In both chrome and firefox, windows and linux, I get "key.normalize_brain_key is not a function app.js 102"  That is firefox on windows.

On Chrome I get
vendors.js:2 Uncaught TypeError: key.normalize_brain_key is not a function

It should be real easy to replicate this bug, just go to create account and keep clicking through until you get to the brainkey option at the bottom.

General Discussion / Today is dev Memorial day - Observations on ETH.
« on: June 01, 2016, 01:53:15 am »

For non-Americans who don't know,  yesterday was Memorial day.  A day where we honored the armed forces who "fought for our freedom".

Well a lot of you didn't know today is "developer's Memorial Day" where we give thanks for those devs that fought for our freedom.

Anyway, all jokes aside I downloaded the ETH wallet. I was impressed by the integration of ShapeShift to get people up and going. However other than that, this thing is buggy as fuck. My first attempt was not successful as I got stuck on some block.  (Might have been a sleeping laptop or something did this...)  So I switch from 64bit to 32bit and 32bit won't even run saying it is missing some component.  So I google how to delete the chain data and start over with v64. So I would take that as being 3 attempts. IMO Bitshares .9 was likely better than this.

I just wanted to post something positive and acknowledge the good work that WAS done by the BitShares team. Good job guys.

General Discussion / The DAO price discussion thread.

Thoughts on this project ?

I'm not sure what to make of it. Anyone think it is a bad investment?

General Discussion / Congrats to the no-dilution crowd.

Well we're down to 1 worker and he won't last long as this rate.

I wonder how long the block-explorer will last?  Hopefully for awhile still. Once that is gone, even the service I worked on that integrates a rudimentary Bitshares support will no longer be viable. It is probably worth it for him to keep it running, given that it'd allow him to get a decent job given the professionalism of the site.

Maybe Chinese will get one last pump in for the rubes left ?

Regardless, mission accomplished guys. Excellent job. lol

What is expected of a developer when the blockchain fires him?  Is he supposed to finish up his work for free or just immediately quit and go do something else?  Anyone ever had this discussion?

Technical Support / Public API for BTS ?
« on: March 17, 2016, 05:08:58 am »

If I want to do API requests to a BTS server do I need to install my own client or is there a publicly available API ? (that has longterm expectation of being available...)

General Discussion / How long will bts < 1.0 survive?
« on: October 15, 2015, 06:27:46 am »

I started trying to do this whole migration thing........  so I load up my old wallet and realize poloniex has not actually sent my last withdrawal. It says "ERROR" on their side and a  bts < 1.0 blockchain synched up does not show this balance as having arrived? I'm actually concerned now that I will be the victim of a dead blockchain ... nuts... I just want to make sure poloniex can figure out what the hell happened. Thoughts?

General Discussion / Conveying the essence of bitassets graphically ?
« on: March 03, 2015, 10:42:36 am »

Our most key point is market pegged assets.  How do you convey such an idea using graphics?  Whether animated or static graphics, what is the most intuitive way possible to present the idea itself.  If you can quickly convey the benefits of bitAssets then you can quickly transition the brainspace into the utopian market that we are trying to realize and is key into capturing the passion of new users.

General Discussion / Perpetually confused by LTC.
« on: January 25, 2015, 02:10:56 am »

Does anyone understand this?  This thing has went up 50% in past 24 hours and with a lot of volume.  (if you are to believe it)

Is it being pumped somewhere?  What would there be to pump? Who would buy it?  Anyone have any insight?

General Discussion / How do invalid blocks work?
« on: January 20, 2015, 04:52:36 am »

So if a delegate signs a block that is not valid how is that handled by the rest of the Delegates?  Is the invalid transaction removed and then the valid transactions are just added to a new block.  Then the other Delegates ignore the invalid block?

Not sure about this coinfire site, so don't take this too seriously.

Random Discussion / pimpcash. This is like... strange.

I like it though.  It is that right mix of joke/seriousness that appeals to my humor aesthetic.  Much like Die Antwoord.

It seems possible we might see a black swan event.  If price drops below breakeven on mining wherever these big mining farms are, they could start shutting off the farms.  If this was to happen right after a difficulty adjustment then it could cause enough disruption to further drive the price down. Then once the difficulty goes down farms jump back into mining and we have 2 weeks of fast blocks but then there are just more to sell on the market.............  So many things could possibly happen.  It will be interesting to see. 

At least this time of year home miners can subsidize power consumption by using heat waste to warm a dwelling.

As for me, I was hoping BTC would rally back up but once it hit 280 I sold what I had left.  Sigh.  It seems likely to me it could just go down to 200ish again.  A lot of true believers already bought in some time ago.  I suspect this won't be a big deal for Bitshares and might possibly be a net positive.  I hate to see BTC tank like that because a lot of neat projects are going to be hurting.

General Discussion / Thoughts on naming of the new blockchain paying era ?
« on: December 28, 2014, 11:58:01 pm »

I am going with "The Great Consolidation" but that is because I'm too lazy to sit around and think up a name.  I have been editting the wiki a bit trying to make it at last suggest where we are so people can't be misled. 

I don't know if I am up to creating the same level of content that existed previously, but minor corrections pointing people to our current status would be a useful thing.
