Everything is very clear now to me. I will try to claim my MMCs later tonight and see what happens. Thank you very much.

Last questions.
1.When I tip someone how would he know that it is coming from me.
2. Qt wallets have something that says sign message. What is this? how do i sign a message? what is the purpose?

Merry Christmas to all and a happy PTS New Year! I really hope that PTS becomes popular like BTC since I have missed that train...

1, They would either have to know the address you were sending it from, or you would have to tell them the transaction ID of the tip
2, Signing a message is a way of proving that you control a specific address. This is mostly used by merchants to request payments

We will be releasing a version of Keyhotee that will allow you to generate your public/private key.  There will have to be a secondary registration step where you download Keyhotee and generate your ID.   We wanted to have this in your hands earlier, but will just be getting it out this week for Alpha testing.   

The genesis block initialization will be delayed until everyone has an opportunity to send us their public key.

Great staff... I didn't think I could do it and I very happy that I managed to obtain some MMCs with your guidance... Looking forward to Kehotee, bitshares and everything else... I feel very happy that from all the altcoins out there I found about PTS from the beggining...Although unfortunately I did not manage to get many cheap PTS in the beggining...

Final question..Does it matter if i transer all my funds to one adress? Is this safe? Will this affect my original bid for a Kehottee ID? Does this matter in any way?

I will send out some tips for all the help so far...

Transferring all your PTS to one address just means there is now one private key instead of several that control your shares. If you had them all in one wallet before, then it makes no difference security-wise (well, except that it's easier to brute-force all your shares, but that's not something you should be worried about). Since you already got your MMC there's no need to keep your old private keys around, though they will still be in your original wallet in case you want them for some reason.

As far as your bid goes, it makes no difference. As far as I can tell I3 is just associated your email with the PTS address you sent your coins to.

Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

This is correct, we will provide a tool shortly that will allow you to generate your Brainwallet and the resulting Public / Private key for Keyhotee.   Then you can use your PTS address that we gave you in your email to register your public key with your identity.   We will provide detailed instructions.

RE: Claiming MMC

What if I have never used the PTS QT client at all ?

I mined all of my PTS using a couple of RHEL miners and all of the resulting PTS I contributed for my Founder ID went from Ypool to Crypsy and then on to the PTS wallet I was assigned.

How should I attempt to retrieve said MMC please ?

cheers in advance, and happy new year to all

If you never controlled the private keys, you never really owned the PTS and hence never had a stake in MMC. Sorry =[
(I'm not totally sure how Ypool works, but I assume they hold all the PTS and only send them to you when you ask to withdraw)
You *might* be able to contact Ypool and ask if you could pretty please have some MMC in proportion to how much you held at the time =\

I guess I missed some 'key' information on this matter. I have posted a query to YPool about this. That is where I controll the PTS Wallet where my mined PTS were initially deposited.

This tweet from Cryptsy is not encouraging however:

" BigVern @cryptsy

We will not be participating in the PTS -> MemoryCoin conversion. If that is something you want, then withdraw to your local wallet.
