I dont know anything about Ether accounts, but I guess you sell your Ether at an exchange for BTC, and buy BTS? poloniex.com has liquid BTC->ETH/BTS markets.

I guess you would need to convert to BTC first. You can also use

if you don't want to install geth (frontier) and use commands to transfer your ethers
the easiest way is to transfer your ethers to kraken exhange  using this
web-tool  https://www.kraken.com/ether and then selling there your ethers for BTC and moving them to any other exchange you want.... (yep poloniex is brilliant) and buy your bts there and  then transfer them to your bts wallet so you don't miss the snapshot and the sharedrop 1:1 to bts2.0 (graphene) tokens  ;)


PS else you must install frontier and insert on the frontier console a command like this:


geth console (wait the wallet to sync before going to the next step_)
web3.eth.sendTransaction({from: 'yourpresaleaccountaddress', to: 'poloniexdepositetheraddress', value: web3.toWei(1000, 'ether')});


if you want to sent 1000 ethers for example and then you will be asked for your password....

I have tried sending 1 ether to my Poloniex ether account using geth. The transaction went through fine, I can see the balance on the Poloniex account using geth command that it does have 1 ether. However when I go to my Poloniex account it does not show, I have doubled check the account number and it's the same. Is there a minimum amount for it to show on Poloniex, do you know? Or how long before it shows up on my Poloniex account? I have done this about 5 hours ago.

I I remember right there is a minimum. But I am sure you don't loose what you sent,it is just  like pending.Another thing is that you will not have problem sending 5 ethers :D
I did that many times in past to check if the transaction will happen  ;)

Ok I think I know what my problem is, apparently I am sending wei and not ether. The minimum ether to send to Poloniex is 0.05. That is why is not showing up on my Poloniex account.

The command I used to send one wei is:   
Code: [Select]
eth.sendTransaction({from: 'MyEtherAccount', to: 'MyPoloniexAccount', value: 1})

If I go to the blockchain I do see all the transactions in wei (7 wei total, 1 ether is like 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 wei)   ::)

My question now is how do I send ether instead of wei?

Thanks

I think I got it, I just found this:

eth.sendTransaction({from: '0x036a03fc47084741f83938296a1c8ef67f6e34fa', to: '0xa8ade7feab1ece71446bed25fa0cf6745c19c3d5', value: web3.toWei(1, "ether")})

This should work, I will try it now. I will report back once I try it and get the funds in my account.

I hope this will help someone.

Is it true we are going to see a huge bull run in ETH over the next month?


I am very very bullish on ETH over the next little while. I think we may set new ATH records as we see the price of BTC skyrocket this month. This month should be a great month for us all in Bitshares, Bitcoin and Ethereum. These are very exciting times.
