Judging from the posts where he apparently forgot to change accounts I would say so too ;)

If one were to buy steem.....is it currently possible to vest the steem if you are NOT technically proficient?  Is there a windows wallet yet?

If you cannot vest, then is it true that you would be at a significant disadvantage so there would be very little point in holding for the long term?

Yea there's no windows wallet yet so you'd be unable to vest your Steem. That leaves you vulnerable to inflation in the long term so just holding is probably not a great idea.

I believe there's a docker image you could use though to setup a personal node, shouldn't be too hard.

Thank you SVK.  I googled 'docker image' and i'm ashamed to say i suspect setting up a personal node would indeed be too hard. 

It's a shame because I'm very keen on MAS.  I thought BitShares was going to adapt to make it easier for communities to utilise BitShares.....but it now seems, as i feared, that the community that forms the basis of the network is fragmenting and those who are either technically insecure or have run out of capital are in danger of being left behind.  The only means of preventing that are sharedrops, but I accept that capital is scarce and awarding people appropriately is a challenge.

I hope Stan finds his whale and we can all just get on with the business of making BitShares what it could be......either that or more blood, sweat & tears  ;D

Do you have access to a linux or osx machine?  If you can generate a public private key pair, and give me the public key I can get an account registered for you.


edit.  Even without access to a linux or osx machine its possible.  would just have to reuse a bts private key

Hiya puppies, that's incredibly kind of you.  I'm afraid I only have a Windows laptop.  I've bought a small amount of Steem and I'm happy with that for now. Thank you so much for your offer to help!

If you change your mind it should be pretty easy to get you up and running in a secure way.  If you pick an existing bts public key from your bts wallet, all you need to do is to give that public key to someone running the steem cli that can register that account for you.  I think it requires 100 steem to be vested in the account, and they should be able to register the account by replacing the BTS at the beginning with STM.

From there you can export the private key from the bts gui and import it into the steem webwallet.  You will be able to transfer, transfer to vesting, and withdraw from vesting all from the steem webwallet.  If your goal is to purchase steem, transfer to your wallet and vest, then that should be well served by this method.

bot syntax has been changed.

To make it easier for non cli users to register accounts on the steem network I set up a bot that will register accounts for you.  If you send at least 100STEEM to the steem account register with the memo "STEEMPUBLICKEY;requestedaccountname" it will attempt to register requestedaccountname with a public key of STEEMPUBLICKEY.  If you do not have a steem public key you can reuse a bts public private key pair by replacing the BTS at the beginning with STM.  Just make sure you have the private key. 

It is a really simple bot that I whipped up really quick, and it may run into issues.  I would suggest looking at steemit.com/@register look at the transactions and see if the bot looks like its up.  The memo will need to be a working steem public key followed by a : and then a viable steem name.  All lowercase starts with a letter not a number etc.

Sadly this bot is almost entirely worthless due to the only exchange that currently lists steem having way too short of a memo field.  its not even long enough for a public key let alone a public key and an account name.  I don't know if you will be able to use memos from openledger when the gui is updated.

Ok puppies, you've convinced me to try :)  I have some Steem (in bittrex)  i'd like to vest.  So I need a BitShares 2.0 public key (for which I know the private key.)  Sounds silly but from where in wallet do i get the public key?  I'd like to give you the public key, if you are willing to hand hold me through this?  Also, is your bts account 'puppies' ?  I'll send over some bts to say thank you.
