BTS still stuck on old blockchain
« on: March 18, 2016, 04:42:14 pm »
I still have about 80,000 BTS on the old chain that I cannot transfer because my client WILL NOT synch past block 2605505.  Is there another way to remove those BTS from the old wallet to my 2.0 wallet.  I'm a technical idiot so it should not be too difficult a process or I get lost and frustrated.  Have managed to move all my BTS that was purchased prior to block 2605505.  Any suggestions.  I have tried numerous times to delete and reboot but it still stops synching at same block.

Make sure you are on 0.9.3c client so you have access to the wallet_export_keys command. If the wallet file is a recent backup you may not need to sync the whole chain as your wallet would contain all the keys.

Code: [Select]
wallet_export_keys <json_filename>                Exports encrypted keys to a JSON file
Exports encrypted keys to a JSON file

Parameters:
  json_filename (filename, required): the full path and filename of JSON file to generate

I transferred the BTS to my .9.3 wallet after the last block i was able to synch so those most recent BTS are not showing in the client and i just cannot seem to get past that block.  It shows severe network problems with low delegate participation rate which is what it has been telling me for the last 301 days.  Any other way to download just the blocks I need to get the BTS onto the old wallet so that I can access and transfer?

I believe someone has a full blockchain available for download so you don't have to sync the old chain.

Thanks for the suggestions and help. As suggested above I have now downloaded the blockchain file into a  MEGA cloud account that I set up.  Not sure what I'm doing but how do I connect my old client to this blockchain file to access the remaining BTS?

Your raw blockchain data is stored in %APPDATA%\Roaming\Bitshares .. just replace the 'chain' or the 'raw_chain' folder in there with the downloaded folder
