For people who would like to try to claim funds via CLI wallet,

the steps:
Code: [Select]
set_password
unlock
import_accounts file_name file_password
import_account_keys file_name file_password account_in_file account_on_chain
where "file_name" is the json file exported from the 0.9.3c wallet.

If the "account_on_chain" is not in the file, E.G. a newly registered account, need to import its key with
Code: [Select]
import_key account_on_chain private_key

Hi guys,

after hours and hours i finally managed to recover my funds! yeah.

Just a quick question: Is it possible, that 5.5 PTS translate into 750 BTS or are there missing funds?

If anyone would like 1-on-1 help over voice (with or without screen share), I will guide you through the process of claiming your funds for a fee of 10% of successfully recovered assets. As the OP suggests, it is very easy to accidentally not claim all your funds. I will make sure that you every single share you are entitled to is claimed.

In addition to normal circumstances, I can also help recover funds when things appear to have gone wrong- balances not showing, passwords not working, etc.

If interested, PM me, or directly add me to Skype at fluxanomaly627 and we'll get your funds sorted out.

HUGE thanks due to fluxer555, a true gent. He helped me recover funds I didn;t even know I had.


Absolutely delighted right now, if you have coins still to recover send him a pm and he'll walk you though everything step by step.

Eternally thankful for this assistance.

It would help if someone has the 0.9.3c blockchain before the snapshot and posts a bootstrap so others can rescan and get their wallet's exported

What folder do we put this file in to sync blockchain?

And forgive me for thinking keeping backups of my priv keys and wallets would be enough to be able to access my funds.

I think this could be made a lot easier if the network for 0.9.3c was live, any chance of that happening?
That I have priv keys, a wallet backup AND passwords yet still cannot access my funds is beyond a joke.
I've tried literally everything I have found online and NOTHING works.

Is it even possible to look at balance on a block explorer? This is starting to look pretty shady imo.

what's funny is that you did not bother to follow your investment for almost 3 years. so if you want help you better calm down a bit


I've been hodling and otherwise occupied, surely that's kind of the point in long term investments no?

I'm glad you find it funny...

I followed the instructions here step by step and I was only able to get 5% of my balance into the new Bitshares 2.0 wallet.

If there are any other people having the same issue, please post here.   
Also vote up my post on steemit here -  https://steemit.com/bitshares/@educatedwarrior/my-experience-upgrading-for-bitshares-x-version-0-4-23-1-to-bitshares-2-0-instructions-included

Some original Invictus investors I have spoken to are getting frustrated trying for months to get their funds transferred.   I suggest the dev team set up a more organize method of helping resolving people's issues.

Me personally, I have my balance displayed in 0.9.3c on the screen teasing me...   "Here I am, but you can't have me"

One step in the instructions I saw was to transfer the BTS back to yourself.  Can't do that if the old blockchain is down.  Correct?

If it reports "password error" when trying to restore your backup to 0.9.3c, perhaps your wallet is backed up with an old version. Try to import to 0.5.3, then upgrade to 0.9.3c.

Task 1: Upgrade old BitShares Client to 0.9.3c
1. Download the client version 0.9.3c from https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-0.x/releases/download/bts%2F0.9.3c/BitShares-v0.9.3c.exe
2. Run installation and perform the Upgrade
3. Run the UI client and enter wallet key (if the application screaming about some RESET, press the RESET!)
4. Wait till your block chain is fully synced (the last block number in OLD block chain is 3832292)


Now I downloaded and launch 0.9.3c, but the status is not connected.
Can I synce block chain though?

Yes, good post.
In addition, if some fund is still missing after tried this, need to try the "wallet_regenerate_keys" trick.

By the way, why not move this post to "Help & Technical Support" board?

Good writeup, thanks.

About the second account: most likely it had a higher balance because of the vesting balances from the merger, the balance lookup tool in the BTS 2 wallet includes that balance when you import balances.

Hello,

I would like to share my experience and solution how to migrate from Windows Client BitShares 0.X.X to BitShares 2.0.

In my case, once I performed the steps provided by official BitShares site (http://docs.bitshares.eu/migration/howto-exporting-wallet.html), I found that one from my 3 accounts is missing balances(0 BTS!), and another account contains only 30% from the expected balance. I tried to explain my problem on this forum, and all I got from "experts" is the same solutions provided by the site, which was retried several times without any result.

It looks like the official guide is working only for perfect worked BitShares client, which is never crashed, never uninstalled, never restored.
So, if you did restore your wallet from backup and other dirty stuffs, especially after you did any transactions, you may experience the incorrect balances issue during migration, and below I will explain how to migrate in the right way, which worked for me.


Task 1: Upgrade old BitShares Client to 0.9.3c

1. Download the client version 0.9.3c from https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-0.x/releases/download/bts%2F0.9.3c/BitShares-v0.9.3c.exe
2. Run installation and perform the Upgrade
3. Run the UI client and enter wallet key (if the application screaming about some RESET, press the RESET!)
4. Wait till your block chain is fully synced (the last block number in OLD block chain is 3832292)

Task 2: Re-scan block chain via console client of 0.9.3.c (Actually, this is the missing step in official guide!)
5. Shutdown the BitShares UI client (Although you closed the window, the process may still run, and you should wait till it will really exit - check it via Task Manager)
6. Run the console client (c:\Program Files\BitShares\bin\bitshares_client.exe)
7. Enter: wallet_open default

8. Enter: wallet_unlock 324324244
9. Now it will ask you for a password of your wallet. You should enter the same password you are using to enter UI wallet, enter the password and press ENTER.
....NOTE! When you type your password it will not be displayed, so do not be confused, just keep typing!....

10. Enter balance to check the balances for all your accounts. It will show the "bad" balances or nothing.
11. Enter wallet_rescan_blockchain 0 3832292 false and press ENTER. This will re-scan all transactions, and may take several hours(or DAYS!), but you must wait till it complete!!!
.......after a lot of time you should see this.....

12. Enter balance  again. At this step I got this:


Task 3: Export wallet
13. Enter: wallet_export_keys full_balances_0.9.3c.json
...this will save the wallet keys in full_balances_0.9.3c.json located in c:\Program Files\BitShares\bin\ folder....
...you should import it to BitShares 2.0....

Task 4: Install BitShares 2.0 and continue with official guide
14. Download and Install the latest client from https://bitshares.org/download/
15. Open official "Migration guide - Import wallet" - http://docs.bitshares.eu/migration/howto-importing-wallet.html
16. Import keys (as described there)
17. Claim balances (as described there)
18. And finally in Dashboard!
....LOL! For 2nd account I got more BTS, than it was in console before migration...161K(after) vs 143K(before) !....(Thanks God)


BitShares team should be more responsible for what they do, because many people did invest real money for them!

I am not sure that it restored ALL of my money, but I'm sure that it restored most of them.
Hope it will help somebody else!
