I'm not familiar with the GUI, but in the console you can use the wallet_import_bitcoin command to import your old wallet.dat:

Code: [Select]
wallet_import_bitcoin <wallet_filename> <passphrase> <account_name>
You have to create an account first. Then replace <wallet_filename>, <passphrase> and <account_name> with the full pathname of your wallet.dat, your old wallet passphrase and the new account name respectively.

You can do same in GUI here the BitSharesX instruction: http://wiki.bitshares.org/index.php/BitShares/Howto
But for PTS it's will be a same, look to section "Attempting a wallet import to receive BTSX from February 28th snapshot".

Select wallet type Bitcoin and provide old PTS wallet.dat and password if it's protected.

Anyway I can get my 2080 PTS that was proven stolen back in this snapshot?

It is unfortunately the nature of blockchain technology that it is impossible to prove or disprove that a given transaction was made with or without your consent. We cannot appoint ourselves judges in this case and meddle with the snapshot in your favour (or anyone elses).

Quite the opposite. If we did move these coins back to an address under your control, this could be seen as theft. An actual theft that could easily be proved by the owner of the address currently holding your coins. And I'm not even trying to hide my identity here - I would be an easy target. I'm sorry, but I cannot help you there.

And you guys are wanting mainstream adoption at some point?   I had over $30,000 stolen from me using your technology because it isn't very secure, and this response is not very encouraging.
And no one is working adding multi-signature or 2 factor authentication to the wallet?

If you moved the coins back to my address I'm sure the owner will not have a foot to stand on.   I'll give you my personal contact information, because I have nothing to hide.   These funds were stolen from me.  All my Bitshares wallets were hacked.

What are you guys doing to make sure there isn't another victim in the future?   
Bytemaster and Toast are already helping me with my Bitshares wallet ... I'm just asking for help with my Protoshares wallet now.  Any help would be appreciated.   Also accepting donations to recoup losses.

Suppose you walk through a city with a $100 bill in your physical wallet. Back at home, you notice that your wallet is gone, probably stolen by a pickpocket. What do you do?
Ask people on the street to reimburse you for your loss?
Accuse the wallet-maker for not providing you with a theft-proof wallet?
Accuse the FED for not making theft-proof banknotes?
Ask another thief to find the pickpocket and steal your money back?

IMHO I think there is a better analogy.

This technology is focused towards replacing the banking system, investment banking, and brokerage ... not merely physical wallets - am I not correct? 

And your analogy of Fed theft proof bank notes ... come on now.   You telling me accounts that hold money market funds do not have fraud protection?

Better Analogy (Banking):   A cyber criminal gets your checking account information and makes withdrawals from your account.   You call the Banks fraud department.  The bank credits your money back and investigates the stolen funds.  The bank has a way of verifying if the funds were stolen or not.

So my question is where is fraud protection for Bitshares?   Doesn't appear to exist presently but I was hoping someone would be working on it .. but from your response above it's not very encouraging for myself or others that are not a technically savvy.   

I hope you guys could figure this out because I supported Invictus from the start and was on board with the vision ... and if you guys are shooting for mainstream adoption you will have to have a solution for issues that currently exist in the current financial system... otherwise you will not see mainstream adoption.

Also, I really hope you guys could be considerate enough to help me recoup my losses ... I think that shouldn't be too much to ask from one of your original investors and long-time supporters.  And hope to continue supporting, depending how everything goes.  Also realize if I were using the current financial system (banking or brokerage), this would be a non-issue.

The price is low because it had been diluted . Pretty soon it may climb as plans and marketing kick in.

Is it a new Fed or an update? >:D

It's just some guy named "Fed" and he's telling everybody his dollar is a mandatory upgrade.

Can we fork him?

I wish you would.

I think the original PTS (PoW) was the better way. PoS train arrive in Cryptocurrencies.
PoW the beginning and the end
