Insufficient BTS funds
« on: January 06, 2018, 04:52:41 am »
I'm trying to withdraw BTC from my wallet and can't because I need to pay a fee in BTS.
But I don't have BTS and can't trade them for BTC, how can I get out of this loophole?

Make sure to keep 5-10 bts to cover fees.

Usually the asset owner (open.btc?) should keep the assets' fee pool filled, which would allow you to pay the transaction fee in btc...

What's your bts id? I'll send you some

With the risk of sounding like a beggar, can you lend me 1 BTS?

I ended up at this post by googling/searching for a solution to a problem similar to the one OP posted. I transferred BTC into BitShares DEX to get something called Open.BTC with huge transfer fee only to find that I can't trade it to BTS... because I don't have BTS (what?). So now it seems I need to buy other BTC and send it with the cost of another high fee to buy BTS from some other place and have that transferred to my BitShares wallet.

I honestly don't get it. Is not BTS bitshares.org's own coin? I mean can't the BTS fee be retained from the exchanges made to BTS? I don't know maybe I'm too new at this, just asking.

Anyway, I would appreciate your help. Scouts honor I would give it back immediately! :)

Thanks

I am brand new to this and it took me hours just to figure out after finding and reading this that it probably wasn't something I was doing wrong when it kept saying I had insufficient funds for the fee to buy BTS from the BTC I sent it from coinbase.  But, all I want is to buy some BTS and it is so difficult. How do I get BTS to pay the fee to buy BTS?  Help!

No need to share BTS.  Here is the solution:
Convert a small amount of your open.BTC to BTS to cover trading fees.  In the Bitshares wallet app, go to Withdraw and scroll down to INTERNAL CONVERSION.  Set the "from" currency to open.BTC and the target to BTS, then set the amounts.  Note that the "Insufficient funds" message highlighted in red on the right side immediately disappears.  Submit the request, then go to Dashboard to check your assets.  You should see a non-zero quantiy (what you requested) for BTS.  Now you can successfully submit trades to buy BTS with your open.BTC.

Hi. I have made a trade in the DEX and I have converted all my funds to BitUSD I try to exchange I get an "Insufficient funds to pay fees" error for not having any BTS  :'(

Can someone send me 0.1 BTS to get out of this problem? my count is sertorius25

I can not convert my BitUSD with BlockTrades either. The DEX should avoid these situations by preventing the entire rate from being spent. Sometimes in trading you act quickly and you do not realize.

Well, I send 10 bts to who send me 0.1 bts. Please Help me!

i am in this same situation. But i just deposited about 20 bucks worth of btc into my account through the openledger gateway, and it STILL says insufficient funds!? i dont understand how i cant now place a single sell trade. Would anyone be willing to send me a tiny amt of BTS to  . This needs a fix!

okay i just bought BTS using BTC through blocktrades, on the platform. i went to open.BTC/BTS on the exchange and used the blue link "buy BTS".

It would still be preferable to have a workaround somehow.
