Video Tutorials of using BitShares wallets

Hi,
thanks for your awesome contribution.

I think the video:
http://www.aboutbts.com/2014/12/video-creat-and-register-your-account-and-sub-account.html
is a bit outdated - there is no "if you need BTS to finish account registration, just post your public key here" thread any more.

Now there is "Account registration faucet for new users!" https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=12687.0
with the link to the faucet
http://faucet.bitshares.org

You probably need to update it.

Thanks for the great work again.

Thanks for your opinion. Actually, I encountered some bug while using faucet to register sub-account.
I had no problem registering my account using faucet. But the faucet did not allow me to register my subaccount, even when I choosed to pay by my self. I will change this video when it is fixed.

Hi guys,

Okay, what numb-nut newbie oversight might I be making here - I have no audio coming through with any of the videos I've tried to watch so far (5 videos so far with no audio coming through).

I've checked everything I can think of on my end, volume level settings, sound system is powered ON (duh), etc. and all is good.
I have no problem hearing audio through my system when I play a Youtube video, music through my Winamp player, etc. I'm just not getting any audio coming through with these Video Tutorials.

Can anyone offer any suggestions of what else I should check?

Thanks for your help.

UPDATE:

There is almost certainly something wrong with the Video Tutorials themselves with regards to audio.

I took the embedded YouTube links from several of the Video Tutorials themselves and went directly to YouTube to watch (and hopefully hear) the videos as they are directly from the YouTube website...

Result: No audio. Video plays beautifully, but there is no audio to be heard. If I click around on YouTube to watch other random videos, I have no problems, - audio is heard loud and clear.

(I'm a newbie here still trying to get comfortable and knowledgeable on the ins-and-outs of this forum, but I'll try to notify the forum's Technical Support and/or Moderators of my experiences.)

If it's not asking too much, after you've had a chance to fix the Video Tutorials' audio, can you please shoot me a PM and/or put a post up letting us know all is good?

Thanks again, your efforts are very much appreciated!

Hello friends,

I am new to crypto and Bitshares and need some advice.  I have a Windows7 and am trading for Bitshares on an exchange.
I would like to secure my Bitshares in a wallet at this time to send and receive Bitshares.
I am wondering when Bitshares 2.0  and the Moonstone lightweight wallet might happen.  Should I wait awhile for this wallet or install the web wallet now?  I understand that the web wallet is experimental software.  Is it secure?

Thanks.

Thanks.
I would not recommend the webwallet as-is for storage.

Instead, go to https://github.com/xeroc/jshares and make yourself a secure paper wallet (offline).
A paper wallet is a single private/public keypair written on a physical piece of paper.
Funds are sent to the public address.
Funds are spent from the private address. Anyone with knowledge of the private key can spend your money - be careful where you put it.

Here are some step by step instructions, the whole process shouldn't take longer than 5 minutes if you know what to do.

On the right-hand-side of that page (in the middle) is 'Download Zip'. Click.
The file will download as a .rar or a .zip file.
This means that you will need the free software WinRar. (http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm)
Once downloaded, the file should open within winrar.
"Extract" the downloaded files to a known location (desktop?)

Now go to your save-location and open the folder, "jshares-master".
In this folder is a file named "paperwallet".
Open this file.
This will open a webpage displaying a public and private key.
A "refresh" button in the top right allows you to calculate a new address.
Be careful, if you refresh the page or press "refresh" the previous keys will be gone forever unless you have written them down.

Now that you see how it works, unplug the device from the internet and DO NOT reconnect until you are 100% sure you have finished.

Now that there is no internet connection (make sure wifi is off too), refresh the paperwallet webpage a few times to make sure.
Now write down the public and private key twice, on two separate pieces of paper
so that any errors can be found easily and you can store the paper wallet in two locations to protect from housefires/floods etc.
Triple check that you have copied the public and private keys correctly.
Store one paper wallet in a safe place at home, and another with a trusted family member or bury it in a secret location.

DO NOT COPY OR SAVE THE PRIVATE KEY ANYWHERE ON YOUR COMPUTER. This includes ctrl+c - do not do that.
The only place that the keys should be written are on the two (or more) pieces of paper.

Make sure that both paper copies are correct and that you have not compromised your keys by writing them in a notepad or something (DONT DO THAT).

Refresh the paperwallet webpage to get rid of your super-secret keys and then shut down your computer.
When you reboot you can turn the internet on again.

Now you're done! You are now 99.9% secure and this is as far as you really need to go to stay safe :)
These paper wallets are way more secure than the both a webwallet and a client wallet.

If you don't yet own any crypto, buy your bts on an exchange such as https://www.ccedk.com/ and then send the bts to the public key of the paper wallet you have just created!

If you already have bitcoin, then go to https://blocktrades.us/ and choose to trade Bitcoin for BitShares (should be default.)
Paste your paper wallet public key into the appropriate field, click OK and then send your btc to the address displayed.
There is no registration and the bts will be in your wallet as soon as you have one btc confirmation (~10mins).

A note on paper wallets: they behave as a piggy-bank would. You can either drop bts into it as often as you like, or you can "smash" it and spend all the funds at once.
There is no partial-withdrawal.
If you want access to only a fraction of the funds on the paper wallet, you must transfer the remaining balance to a NEW paper wallet - NOT THE OLD ONE.
If you access the paper wallet then your private key is no longer 'cold' as it must be revealed to the internet to spend.
BitShares makes all this easy, so there's no need to worry.

To spend the funds on the paper wallet, all you need to do is import the private key to a internet connected wallet.
This is merely typing in the private key and pressing 'import' or 'sweep'.

You may wish to test this process by creating a paper wallet, funding with a tiny amount, and then making sure that when you "import" your private key again the funds are still there.

==============================================

If you're really cautious then you can do the same process as above, but on a machine that has never before been connected to the internet and has a fresh install of the operating system.

You can download and run a free Virtual Machine and install a fresh version of linux onto it. A VM is a way of running a separate operating system within the OS you already have - e.g its a program that runs on windows, but is a separate environment so is not subject to viruses that may be on the windows host machine.

Download and install https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

While you're waiting for that to download, get your hands on a 32bit linux distro.
http://www.linuxmint.com/edition.php?id=171

You will also need a Virtual CD/DVD program, so that you can run your linux file without bothering to burn it to a disc.
http://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/miso-magicdisc-overview.htm

Once installed, run virtual box and choose "New" in the top left corner.
Quote
Name: linux
Type: Linux 123
Version: Ubuntu 32bit
Tick: Do not add a virtual harddrive

Click "Create"

Open MagicDisc (or other Virtual CD drive), and navigate to "Virtual CD/DVD-ROM" > "Mount" > And select the linux 32bit file you downloaded.

Now go back to Virtual Box, choose the "linux 123" virtual machine you just created and click "start". The program will then boot, choose the linux 123 "disc" and it will boot linux as a fresh install.

Follow the paper wallet instructions as before.
REMEMBER TO DISCONNECT FROM THE INTERNET!
Now you have closed the webpage and the paper wallet has dissapeared, close the virtual machine.
You will be asked to 'Save machine state' or 'Power off machine'.
Saving is basically standby, you want to Power-Off to be sure that all your paper wallet info is really gone.

Enjoy your 99.999% security!
DONT LOSE THE PAPER WALLETS OR LEAVE THEM FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO FIND AND COPY!

I hope that helps!

I wanted to check out your videos but it seems the whole site is down.

I might crowdsource ideas and funds and help you guys make a new series, when I'm back from vacation. Let's see if there's any interest for that.

These videos are outdated, in among with many other docs/tutorials. Looks like those people have lost their passions.

Your offer is appreciated anyway. Some other people may have interest. See https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=19228.0 https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,20095.msg261173.html#msg261173

[member=41181]Hypercube[/member] have you thought about making a UIA and sell it so you could earn from the time you would spend on making these tutorial videos? Like the list of videos I've shared with you in another post?

We are in need of that and I think some would buy it

Is an UIA a asset that I'd create ? Perhaps... but to keep it simple and raise the most funds i'd probably just ask for BTS or BTC.
And yes, I think BTS is in need of some professional marketing. I think Bitshares really deserves more attention than it's getting right now.

I'll come up with something and share the plan end of Januari
