Imported balances disappeared - non 2.0 account?
« on: October 27, 2015, 01:18:55 am »
I used the light wallet to import my keys.json created from 0.9.3c. I then claimed the balances from those keys into the my account, and they showed up in my overview page. However after closing the light wallet and reopening it, no balances are visible and I have nothing.

Is this because the account that I claimed the keys into was pre 2.0 hard-fork? It was one of the accounts imported from the keys.json backup, not one created from the Openledger faucet. (The light wallet doesnt support stealth accounts.)

Is there anything I can do to get these funds back? I tried going into the import keys screen again and it says they have already been claimed (as expected).

If you correctly claimed your BTS1 funds, then they should be visible from the account name. Go to the explorer->accounts search your account and take alook if there are transactions/funds in there.
If not you have not correctly claimed your funds and need to do that procedure again. If you feel there is something wrong with you lightwallet, just send me your account name per PM and I will take a look from here

I have a similar problem, i started 0.9.3c and tried to sync, but the client saying "not connected" so i exported the wallet as described and imported it
in the new 2.0 light client. But now i'm missing my last transactions, maybe because my client was not fully synced (i started the 0.9.3c client today,
last time was months ago) but how can i sync without a connection and additionally can i repeat the migration procedure when the 0.9.3c client is
synced to the last block before the hardfork?

You don't need 0.9.3c to be fully sync in order to move your keys to 2.0 - all your keys are already there, you don't get them over the network.

This is only true if you already see ALL your funds ... if you have sent something to your account and have not catched up with it in your client you may need to sync the whole blockchain (for TITAN accounts)

Why does the "regenerate keys" rescan the blockchain if they are already there? Totally curious.

After reopening the light wallet it showed only the newly created account here.
Went to settings / wallets / and clicked on:  Active Wallet Default => all imported accounts & balances showed up again.
Edit: I see all the accounts & balances, but if I click on them, no reaction  :-\
Edit: "reload button" did the trick  :)

Thanks for answering, yes indeed i sent some transactions which are not catched up in my client, but i have the problem that the 0.9.3c client is not syncing anymore. What can i do or are the transactions finally gone?

Sorry but have anyone an idea how to sync the 0.9.3c wallet, it won't sync for me, or is there a blockchain file somewhere, which i can download?
Thanks.

You don't need to sync 0.9.3c wallet, export keys and import them to BitShares 2.0, more details here: http://docs.bitshares.eu/migration

Say you were 6 months behind the snapshotted final chain. Would any TITAN transactions sent to your account in that time appear in the exported keys?

edit: Just read the guide and that's a no. If anyone needs it I could upload the chain directory somewhere tomorrow morning if that helps and is all that is required. It goes a short time after the final snapshot.

You must scan all Titan transfers before you have the keys in your wallet.

Thanks for uploading the chain, i'm rescanning the titan transactions and hope i can import the additonal keys into the 2.0 wallet.
Will give you feedback then.
best regards

Oh my nerves, rescanning the blockchain in the 0.9.3c client worked well, i exported the keys.json and wanted to import the "updated" keys file (some additional keys)
in the 2.0 light client, but the client says "wallet is already imported", has anyone a idea how to solve this?

thank you in advance

This is exactly what i tried, but i imported the json file also before, but i had some missed transactions because my old client 0.9 was not fully synced,
then ozvic uploaded the fully synced blockchain, i rescanned and exported the keys again and now i tried to import the "updated" keys into the
2.0 client and it does not work, because the client says "wallet is already imported".

You can try to create a new 'wallet' in the webwallet and use this new wallet to import keys.

I'm not sure if it is save to have the same keys into 2 different wallets, usually it should work, but because it is not a usual migration (completly different blockchains), i'm not really sure.

Does anyone know, if it is save, to import "updated" wallet file (already migrated to 2.0 but forgot to sync the wallet, so i have missing transactions with the first trial),
into a completly new 2.0 account, because if i try to import the "updated" wallet file into my usual 2.0 account, the wallet says "wallet is already imported", but there are some
additional keypairs, so it looks like the only option is to import it into a new 2.0 wallet.
Just want to be sure to avoid further complications.
thanks in advance

I have an old Bitshares wallet backup (BitShares X Wallet Backup.json 107kb) from October 29, 2014

I tried importing it to a new installation of 0.93c but it does not accept my password (i'm 99.999% sure it is correct)

I don't know what version it was created on and have no idea what to do
