If I make this tutorial video, do I assume that the user already has a BitShares accounts?
Or does it need to include instructions on how to set that up first?
For me it would make sense separating the two, maybe titled
1) Wallet install and set up
2) Funding your BTS Wallet

I agree these should be two separate tutorials.

# First Steps for End-Users

This guide gives a quick introduction on how to trade STEEM:BTC in BitShares.

## Choose your wallet

To interact with the BitShares ecosystem, you can either

* [download the official Light Wallet](https://bitshares.org/download)
* or access the network in the browsers via one of our partners:
  * https://openledger.info
  * https://secure.freedomledger.com
  * https://bitshares.org/wallet

## Create an account

In order to use BitShares, you will need to register an account.  All you need
to provide is

* an account name
* a password

The identicon at the top cn be used to verify your account name to third
parties. It is derived from your acocunt name and gives a second verification
factor. And this is how you register your account:

![Create a new account](http://docs.bitshares.org/_images/create-account.png)

Note that, in contrast to any other platform you have ever used:

    Creating an account at one of our partners will make your account
    available at all the other partners as well.**

Hence, your account name can be seen similar to a mail address in such that it
is **unique** and every participant in the BitShares network can interact with
you independent of the actual partner providing the wallet.

## Backup your account

Since you are the only individual that has access to your account and funds, it
is **your responsibility** to make a secure backup of your registered account.

After creating your account, follow these steps:

1. Click the *Backup required* link in the footer
![Backup required footer](http://i.imgur.com/WMI04fc.png)
2. Click "Create Backup"
3. Click "Download" and store the file safely. Make sure to **remember the passphrase** you provided when you created your wallet (above) as the downloaded file is encrypted with it.
4. (optionally but recommended) Note the `xxxxxx * SHA1` checksum to verify the backup

## Depositing Bitcoin

1. Click on **Account** in the top navigation bar to open up your account overview
2. Make sure it states `(Your Account)` below your account name
3. Click **Deposit/Withdraw** to open the corresponding page
4. Enable the *gateway* **CCEDK** which provide the most liquid `OPEN.BTC` IOU

   Note: OPEN.BTC is an *I owe you* (IOU) provided by CCEDK. This means that they back every `OPEN.BTC` token with 100% reserves!

5. Identify the `OPEN.BTC` row and use the provided Bitcoin address to fund your account with BTC
6. After reception and confirmation of your transfer, you will be automatically credited with `OPEN.BTC`

## Trading OPEN.BTC for STEEM

1. Clicking the **Trade** link in the top navigation bar will open the decentralized exchange of BitShares
2. Since any two assets can be traded, we first need to search for our `STEEM:OPEN.BTC` pair by clicking **Find Markets**
3. Search for `STEEM:OPEN.BTC` to trade `STEEM` for `OPEN.BTC` (the tokens you have received for depositing `BTC`)
4. Click on the search result below to open the market page

![Identify the STEEM:OPEN.BTC market](http://i.imgur.com/DE4USPk.png)

5. Similar to other exchanges, you can now place buy and sell orders at your price.

   **Note:** In BitShares, placing an order costs a very small fee (sub-$cent) which get a 90% refund on cancellation. This fee can be payed in almost any asset including `OPEN.BTC`, `BTS` or `STEEM` and it is up to you to decide which asset to use to pay for the fee. Further percentage fees on filled orders may apply.

6. Once your order is matched, the corresponding asset will automatically be credited in your account.

I am looking for someone to create a step-by-step guide with screenshots on how to deposit OPEN.BTC into your BitShares account.

These instructions will be used as part of a marketing push for STEEM that will direct users to BitShares which will start out as the exclusive exchange where STEEM is traded. 

If we play this right BitShares can ride the STEEM publicity and we can get some new traders into the exchange.

Having exclusive assets that people want to trade is one of the best ways of bootstrapping BitShares.

Ideally the guide would be done in MARKDOWN.

This will be great to have in place so we can be ready for LISK traders as well.  LISK launches next Monday.

Ronny (@ccedk): will we have LISK trading on the DEX when it launches?

Have asked Max for an update via skype.

Have already sent the link to Hypercube studios
I think we can squeeze this into the making, but how quick I will have to ask
