How can one get started in BitShares X?
« on: July 19, 2014, 11:37:46 pm »
I downloaded the executable, and I have a friend who is willing to send me some BTSX to try it out. However I can not register my name until he sends me some BTSX, and he can not send me BTSX until I register my name. Interesting deadlock.

Forgive the ignorance, but since this seems very different from Bitcoin, and I don't want to mess anything up.

Also I noticed there is account owner key, but then there is also account address. Which is very confusing. I had him try send to both of these, but no transaction is generated.

What gives?

Thank you!

He needs to add you as a local address before he can send to you.   I'm at work at the moment and can't look up the command.

Another option is to import a private key from a PTS wallet if you have one.

Click on Console link in the wallet and type:

Code: [Select]
>> wallet_list_my_accounts

NAME (* delegate)                  KEY                                                             REGISTERED            FAVORITE       APPROVED       BLOCK PRODUCTION ENABLED
bitcoiners *                       BTSX5rq5GS4q1a3TRMMekFtTf9DkKfA8urJTQPuk7Dje9HvkCALfUB          2014-07-19T19:49:50   YES            1              NO                       

You will see something similar. Give your friend address that looks like this
BTSX5rq5GS4q1a3TRMMekFtTf9DkKfA8urJTQPuk7Dje9HvkCALfUB
and have him add you to his contacts in
Directory -> Unregistered -> Add Contact
>>> approve bitcoiners

It worked as you said - other person had to add me to unregistered before they can send to me. That part could probably be improved but with enough documentation, I think newcomers will be fine.

I do not know anyone who uses BTSX and as such am in the catch 22.

Hello, 

I am new to Bitshares X.  I downloaded the wallet account and it is working and I need to register it but I need enough BTSX to fund my account in order to register my account.

Can someone fund my account to get it going?  Here is the following information:

Name:  cryptofreakoutlaw31

Key:   BTSX8QTeRxHW36EegwhifHpsF6iUFZBNJtiYZS2E7u6MBbRdorC9eA

Thank you.

I tried the web wallet but it did not work for me.  I tried it several time.  It must be my internet explorer.  It pulled up the demo but it would not let me select the "transfer" option.

Sent.  Its possible that the error was on the wallet side.  There is a very very stupid person that keeps registering names from within the web wallet.  This may have been leading to instability for you.

I just got the 1 BTCX a few seconds ago.  I just registered and it cost me 0.1 BTCX to register.  I was going to go ahead and pay you back the 1 BTCX you gave me since I already purchased some BTCX on BTER a while ago.  Thanks again for getting me started.  :)

I did get the BTSX that you sent me and I was able to register.  I was also able to withdraw my BTSX from Bter earlier this morning and I paid you back the BTSX you sent me.  I sent the BTSX back to the account name that was used to send the initial BTSX to me.  Thank you for your help and getting me started.  :)

No account registered... you can create an account of your own name / key.  Then import your BTC / PTS wallet into that account.
