[HOW-TO] Fund/register accounts
« on: December 22, 2014, 03:56:56 am »
When you launch your PTS client you will be asked to enter an account name. This account will remain 'unregistered' until you fund the account and then optionally register the account. Once you register the account name, you can use the account name to receive funds. Until then, if you want to send money to an 'unregistered' account, you need to do the following:

1) Click 'My Accounts' in the left menu bar
2) Click the name of an existing account on this page (or click "Create New Account" to create a new one)
3) On the next page, under your account name, you will see an 'Account Key' which is a long hash address starting with the letters 'PTS...'. This is your account's public key. You can fund your account by sending PTS to this account key.

Post your questions here.

Hi,

How do I transfer my old PTS here?

There are 2 ways to import. Here is the easy way:

Code: [Select]
wallet_import_bitcoin <wallet_filename> <passphrase> <account_name>
FYI - the "bitcoin" name in the command is there because it refers to Bitcoin-style wallet.dat files, including old PTS.

The second way is to use our new "import by signed message" feature: http://pts.cubeconnex.com/index.php?topic=37.msg421#msg421

The second way does not require you to expose your private keys to the client, but requires you to import each address separately. Let me know if you have any trouble.

I've tried quite a few methods with no luck but I recall having similar issues when importing PTS in the past.  On a Mac the original PTS client kept it's wallet.dat and related files in hidden state and in a different place then all other coin wallets.  For whatever reason this will not allow the wallet to import even after changing various settings.

I continued on with importing by signed message.  It appeared to work offline but my balances still remain at zero now that I've taken my wallet online.  Yes, the PTS addresses that I'm trying to import have had funds for a long time.

Any suggestions?  Does my account name need to be registered officially on the network before it will receive the funds?

The account name does not have to be registered.

Unlike the classic wallet import or private key import, the import by signed message creates a transaction. If you do that while offline, the transaction will expire after a while (like any other transaction). You should be able to simply try the import again and go online before the transaction expires.

This is PTS 0.8.5 to the newest PTS client.  This shouldn't involve my already registered BTS account.  Right?

Right. BM's tutorial is not applicable here because we don't have a similar faucet for PTS.

Post your questions here.

So I just downloaded the new PTS Client. It requires me to register on the Blockchain before I can receive my PTS on my new client.
My new PTS Username is: reiddouthat

Can someone help me figure out how to get funds so I can register on the blockchain and withdrawal my PTS from BTER? I see you say: "I can withdrawal with my 'key' to my account" but that isnt working on BTER... It says: cancelled:PTS account is not registered or memo is too long

I ran into the same problem with my BTS [a long time ago]... and someone from Reddit helped me out, and I sent them their funds back once I could get mine in my wallet. Ill do the same, I promise you.

Or if there is some kind of faucet for getting PTS users registered... Could someone please let me know? Thanks!

I purchased some extra PTS from Cryptsy just to try and register my PTS account and transfer my old PTS wallet funds.  Unfortunately Cryptsy has not allowed PTS withdrawls for days now.  Back to the drawing board.  :(

Did you upgrade your old PTS client to v1.0.0.0 before trying the secure asset import? Others have reported difficulty trying to import from old v0.8.5.0. 

Did you also try this method of importing private keys from your old wallet? 

You can then register your account using the imported PTS.

Where would I find the Mac version of the v1.0.0.0 wallet?
