I have downloaded and installed something that is called "Bitshares 2 light". It seems to me it is a wallet with an integrated marketplace.

Is this the main software you are using? if this is "Bitshares 2 light" is there some version that is "non-light"?

There are also web wallets and the mobile wallet as in above post.

Hei og velkommen :)

In addition to the resources listed above, you can also find a rich list here: http://richlist.btsgame.org/#/richlist/bts which can help answer your questions about centralization.

Most of the top 10 holders are centralized exchanges,  bitcoinfan has recently sent all his BTS to Poloniex so he should be out of that list. The account alohacs currently has just under 20 million BTS as the biggest non-exchange holder. That means the biggest individual account that's not an exchange holds ~0.8% of total supply.

In terms of development Cryptonomex (CNX) has been the main driver and most of their proposals have been implemented, but they're currently focused on the new project STEEM.

Hello & Welcome,

Please start reading up a bit at bitshares.org to get an overview.
You can download your first wallet software from the same site.
There are also introductory youtube videos about BTS 2.0 wallets

Test with tiny amounts while you make your first steps using them

These guys also have mobile wallets: http://www.bitshares-munich.de/#wallets

I am from Sweden I am new to Bitshares. I have some questions:

  • Can I download a wallet for my laptop/mobilephone to send Bitshares to? Which wallet would you reccomend?
  • Which manuals are there that could expain the bitshare concept for a person that knows nothing about it?
  • Which possibilities are the in bitshares to get rewards from doing "mining" or from running server nodes that process transactions?
  • How decentralised is the bitshare-network? Is there a small elite/company holding majority of bitshares and doing all the descisions or is it the opposite?

Thank you for any help.
