Valentine merged the master branch into stealth branch...  I helped with testing and bug fixes.

Transfer receipt doesn't show up when I make the transaction

I have to type the address in to the From section to see the recent transactions then I can click on receipt and see it

When you send to an account where you have a private key it does not show the receipt by default.  When the Recent Transactions is fixed, you can get that receipt in 1 click if you need it.  We are thinking that your probably just sending to your self and you don't need to copy the receipt.

The two assertion errors (one `in` one for `out`) are fixed...  The JavaScript serialization layer will automatically sort any data-structures containing multi-field operations.   

Trying blind to blind:

Failed to broadcast the transaction:
in[i-1] < in[ i]:

Trying to redeem funds with a receipt from a private-account that I have not as private-contact:

receiveBlindTransfer error --> Error: Missing required field: Label is required unless a private key is provided
    at s (
    at e.h.value (
    at i (
    at l (
    at MutationObserver.f (
This is what is in the receipt:

    {one_time_key: public_key,
    to: optional(public_key),
    encrypted_memo: bytes()}

Just public keys and encrypted data.  You can't do anything with it unless you can decrypt the memo so the wallet does not receive them.  I have added a error notice: "This wallet does not have a private key for this receipt"

Great find.. This would not happen all of the time.  You have more than one input (more than one 20 dollar bill for example) and they happen to be unsorted.  It looks like the witness node is make sure your inputs are sorted (therefore deterministic).  I'm really happy they put this assertion here to catch this bug.  I'll add a sort to fix it.  Thanks...

Thanks for the update.  Rolling out stealth would coincide VERY nicely with the sudden rise in price.  Strike while the iron's hot.

Yes, let's make it happen...  The price timing also coincides with bytemaster revealing how much the company is investing in BitShares.  If you are watching bytemaster, you are a wise investor to stick with your investments.  So, this was an eye opener for me too.

The backups benefit stealth greatly as well as the overall user experience..  We don't want to go back debug out in the field so I want this one running great first.

In the UI, I tend to want the stealth stuff separated though just for the moment as it matures.  Lets see some traction.  I do agree though it should be seamless and inline with everything.  Much can be done when there is a demand for privacy and stealth.  I can perhaps see a private name registration operation  that would keep stealth and public names from colliding...  That would help put things together more as you see it in the UI.

I have added remote backups...  I was able to create Private accounts see them backed up to the server.   The encryption changed so don't expect any old TEST wallets to work.  You should be able to delete your old wallet under Settings -> Wallet Management Console..   If you delete all old wallets you'll get to use the faucet signup again.

Here is a quick video about the server backups:

Be aware, you will not see a transfer receipt if you send to an account in your own wallet; you can however use the "show receipt" link in the history to see it.  However, there are a lot of bug in the transfers.. I could not see the history and found it really hard to test.  That is minor stuff but too annoying to really mess with now.  I think that needs to be fixed up before we spend time on that.

I was able to backup new accounts, transfers, and contacts on the server and as you can see start using the restore feature.  It is easy to get into a conflict with the server if you start testing local backups.  I'll keep working on that, it will be stable soon.

update...refreshing it did not help...restarting (closing and reopening the page) did the trick.  :)

Great!  Yes those errors are being removed and all the refreshing should be unnecessary after the release (I hope).  I think Valentine is making a release now.

Is it only a few keys that you need?  You can copy the WIFs over to production for the moment...

You can actually point the testnet ( to wss:// (under Settings, API Connection, +) ..  After you add the URL you have to re-select it then "Confirm" .. Then you will be on the BTS chain.  I was able to restore a bts_default.bin wallet there.  I had to refresh the wallet before my accounts showed up (fix is on the way).    Were there any errors in the console?

paging @jcalfee1 @valzav and @svk
To me this seems to be an issue with your local database.
It could probably be fixed by making a backup and creating a new wallet from the backup.

I came here, I finally had something cool to share with the community.  But this is the first time I saw this.  I'm on slack and skype ..

This code has been replaced on the testnet.  Unfortunately the testnet will probably not like your backup, it was on a different chain ID.  I'm wondering if it is a good idea to put in a console command that will let you import it anyways.

This will help us see the issue in the backup using the new code.  What do you think, do you want to try and import it on the testnet?

William use to be a stock broker.. He is able to grasp the UIAs reasonably well...

I talked to William Genske at TJP (Truth Justice Peace), a non-profit organization.  William works with Ken (you'll hear all about Ken!).  I spent a hour talking to William and went through BitShares: history, features like voting, and UIA and went into MAS...  William asked around a bit and came back to me:  They are VERY interested in cryptocurrencies especially BitShares!

The first idea that came to my mind is that they could (in their next new donation run), issue a UIA and sell this for donations.  Since they work with other organizations they, some collaboration should be easy to find.  This may lead to share-drop prospects that will add value to TJP's UIA.

Additionally, they should probably use a UIA to pay volunteers and track contributions the same way we use Brownie PTS.

You might want to check them out, see if you like what they are doing.  Their YouTube material does well.  I definitely like what they are doing and I find a great deal of strength and sincerity in their message.  I'm looking forward to hearing what you think.

There is a contact mailbox on the website, also I can contact William via Skype.

If watching Gene Sharp is too boring for you, here is some excitement from a guy who will recommend the book and also remind you "you have to do your homework" ;)

I will be happy to put both money and skin in the game.

You can debate the drunk driving thing till the end of time.  In the end though, remember alcohol is the byproduct of fermentation.  We ferment food for probiotics and to preserve them.  The body can tolerate it but it is really toxic and therefore undesirable.  Consider that over-drinking could easily be a bi-product of our broken humanity.  Don't chase symptoms, go to the root of the problem.

I can't endorse this video in its entirety (though I am giving you the link -  :)...  This is a little something that got me going though and I see the ideas tossed around on social media so I know I'm not the only one that watched it.  I like the logic here, it get me thinking.   This may be offensive...  :o

Statism: The Most Dangerous Religion (feat. Larken Rose)

Now, what is civil disobedience and should or how should we use it?  Some of you get it!!  I'm in the right place...  I have a book, but no one reads a book just because.  So here is a video about the book.  It is already giving me goose bumps.  So, this is the most down-to-earth awesome experience I have ever had.  It changes everything.   The book is in the public domain and an the English reading of the book is on YouTube.  I put the mp3 on my phone so I can give it to my friends or review.  Please enjoy!!!
