did i get it right, that the 28th of february is NOT a test of the bitshare-system with all the pts and ags around it?
is it the real launch-date for bitshares?

Not launch date, but snapshot date.  You won't get the BitSharesX software then, but you need to have all your AGS donations in and all your PTS in a wallet you control by then in order to get BTS from them when the launch occurs.

Do current users of the older Protoshares QT wallet need to update to this newer wallet before the end of the month to gain access to Bitshares? I tried to update but the new client is unstable for me.

No, you can keep using ProtoShares QT, BitShares-PTS it's an only new version of ProtoShares client.
Which problems do you have with BitShares-PTS? Crashes, not sync?
I get this issue, it then closes the wallet. Any suggestions?


I will check it and reply you here.

o.k. snapshot-date = 2014-02-28
for PTS and AGS?
what about the PTS mined after the 28th of february?
that PTS will only count for the next DAC - with a new snapshot-date?
is the AGS-generation closed at this date - though the donations to get AGS?

Correct.  PTS mined after the snapshot and AGS for donations after the snapshot will be relevant for future DACs released after BitSharesX.

I test BitShares-PTS in Windows 8 x64, its works without any problems.
Looks like you familiar with wallet files and to save time, move/copy ProtoShares files to BitShares-PTS folder. Please try to delete these files and sync wallet from scratch. After this everything should work fine.
Please don't forget to backup wallet.dat file before any changes!!!

Let's us know about results.

OK, I deleted the folders in the >Roaming>Bitshares-PTS folders (i.e. those named database, chainstate, blocks), and then it loads just fine. Thanks, seems just fine now, fully synced.

well, I am afraid I may have lost my PTS. I elected to send them from the old client to the address of my new one. Seeing as how there's "0 active connections to the network" on my old client and displays the outbound transfer with an account balance of zero, it feels like my PTS may have vanished into "space"

any insights?

Thanks for the direction!

I decided to run both wallets simultaneously on two separate computers. PTS have been sent and received. Next time I'll just copy paste the wallet dat and make sure to backup before the upgrade

I wrote a quick set of instructions for OS X users to help them migrate from the old Protoshares client to the new Bitshares-PTS wallet. Hope this helps people.

I installed the Windows version with Wine.

When I go here: /.wine/drive_c/Program Files/BitShares-PTS, I can see:
bitshares-ptsd.exe  BitShares-PTS.exe  and uninstall.exe

My question is, where do I have to copy the wallet file?

Edit: In case I want to build it, could someone post the lines for the terminal please?
(I already build the PTSMiner so I guess I have all dependencies)

Run BitShares-PTS.exe its will create folder under /.wine/drive_c/users/<yourname>/Application Data with new wallet.dat
Close BitShares-PTS
Override wallet.dat with your wallet.dat
Please don't forget to backup wallet.dat file before any changes!!!
