Test Net for Advanced Users

Download this Aug-14 snapshot of BitShares:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_GVo0GoC_v_S3lPOWlUbFJFWTQ

If you have a mac, download the draft version of BitShares 0.9.2 which has a new api call
https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares/releases/tag/untagged-4166986045ff28284dc4

Console>>  wallet_export_keys /tmp/bitshares.json

That file will contain all of your public/private key pairs sorted by account.   You can use that data to import into graphene.  Note: GUI import is still somewhat broken.

You can connect to the test network as:

Code: [Select]
./witness_node --rpc-endpoint "127.0.0.1:8090"  --genesis-json aug-14-test-genesis.json -d test_net -s 104.200.28.117:61705
./cli_wallet -w wallet_name  --chain-id 081401ede64c8fe30b23c91d7ab8750103acb1a39548a866fb562f2edf4627d6

Next week we will provide information for GUI users.

For those of us not running OSX would you suggest we pull and build that version, or is there a reasonable way of pulling those keys manually?

Now that I am looking at it it looks like both import_account_keys and import_accounts require importing from json.  Is that right?  if so building that version of 0.9.2 seems like a good idea.

This download is broken.. showing a 404 page.
Is there a way to build from source? Best if for Ubuntu.

Mines still building.  Ill post instructions in a couple minutes if it works.

edit

On Ubuntu 14.04 this worked to update the client.  This is assuming that you already have the build directory set up.  checking out bitshares breaks the submodules so you have to pull a couple manually.  Works and exports keys into a nice encrypted json.
Code: [Select]
git pull
git checkout bitshares
cd libraries
rm -r fc
git clone https://github.com/cryptonomex/fc.git
cd fc/vendor
rm -r secp256k1-zkp
git clone https://github.com/cryptonomex/secp256k1-zkp.git
cd ../../..
git submodule update --init --recursive
cmake .
make bitshares_client

There needs to be an easier way to import balances.  Perhaps some way to import all private keys held in the wallet.

I manually imported at least a hundred keys and got a total of 6 hits for 3600 CORE.  Unfortunately not even enough to upgrade account.

Setting up another VPN (as same as my current VPS) now. Hopefully I can successfully settle my testnet delegate there :)
