This screen-shot shows price feeds for BTC:

I guess all witnesses are using the same python script created by xeroc to fetch the price feeds.
So why do we have so big discrepancies in feed prices among different witnesses, especially among those who have updated the feed within the last hour?
In this case, the prices are ranging from 0.00000887 to 0.00001278 even though they have more or less the same timestamp.

Will I be able to follow this path to integrate my PTS from my old Bitshares-PTS wallet (beta!) into my Bitshares 2.0 new account?

Settings -> Wallets -> Key Import Tool - Import your latest .json -> Create Account -> Balance Claims -> Lookup Balances -> Settings -> Wallets -> Create Backup
No, the key import tool cannot import old PTS wallets.

You'll either have to manually dump the private keys from the PTS wallet using the old PTS client, or use the BitShares-0.9.3c client to import the old PTS wallet and create a JSON export which can be imported into BTS-2.0.

I created my own user issued asset UBICOIN for fun but it costs 400 ubicoin to transfer 1 ubicoin to someone else. why so crazy high? and who gets these ubicoin? they would be useless to the reserve pool as they are worthless

I hear ya man, I created one and paid 2,000 to send a few lol.

I then stopped to ask wtf and it was fixed in next release of light wallet (or wherever they fix things these days). ;)

Now I pay a few BTS to send. I'm not sure if someone fixed my UIA, which must currently be done via the CLI or if it was an adjustment to the entire network.

Are you using the latest light wallet or OpenLedger?

I've just received the mail about the Official MUSE Launch
According to the mail I'm in the B Section : "For those that never claimed their Notes and decided to wait until the real blockchain came out"

All I have to do is : "to import your Bitcoin Private Keys (the wallet file) into the MUSE wallet"

My stupid question is : Where can I download the "MUSE wallet" ?

No link where provided in the mail, it should be obvious...

Can someone explain me the whole thing about deleting your browsing history and using the hosted wallet?

If I download the light client, can I delete it safely without having to worry?

Here's my stupid question, there are 2 parts, the first is essentially a basic unix question
part1:
Is there a way to run the current light client on Linux/Ubuntu without fully installing/embedding it into my system? 
With various QT wallets I prefer to just call the bin files directly rather than installing .deb files with dpkg.  Is this actually even any different or could I just move the binary file from /usr/bin to somewhere else and have it work the same after building?
part2:
As a work around till I figured this out I have been running the web-wallet locally (so I don't have to constantly call JavaScript from a server somewhere) downloaded from https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-2-ui/releases but it is released very infrequently and there have been many changes to the UI lately.  Is this release going to be maintained going forward or is the assumption that people are just going to be using the light wallet?
Thanks

How do I import my keys from my AGS donations into Openledger? Doesn't seem to work for me. What's the best way to do this?
I guess you need to do it in two steps: first you need to import your AGS keys into the 0.9.3c GUI and then export the keys from there and import them to the 2.0 GUI as it's described here:
http://docs.bitshares.eu/migration/index.html
But I've never done it this way, so this is only me guessing.

Is this the "best practices" way of importing keys from AGS donations?  Or is there a way to import directly into the 2.0 GUI?

Depends ... if you are tech savvy enough to export the required WIF private keys (from the donation) from your BTC wallet yourself .. then you can also import them directly into the wallet ..

So if I start from 0.9.3c to get to 2.0, can I even register my new account in 0.9.3c?  My guess is no because of the blockchain fork.  Or should/can I migrate to 2.0 and then register?

And is there documentation on registering in 2.0?

[EDIT]  Ignore this question, problem solved   https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,19557.0.html


get_vesting_balances <account_name>  returns [ ]  (BitShares 2.0 CLI) is this normal? I can't remember if vesting balances was supposed to work right away or at some point in the future.

I tried to import the json in gui unsuccesfully(lots of keys, known issues).

I used CLI to import/migrate from 0.9.3c succesfully.

Then I imported in GUI the dumped private key from my BTS key, it worked but I can't see any vesting balances in GUI or CLI, also the backup I created from GUI is really small compared to another account I have, I would expect to be much bigger because I used this account much more and it had more keys in the json.

Where can I download the bitshares blockchain. not the light client but the actual full client and blockchain?
https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-2/releases

Download the cli_tools, it should contain the witness_node. Run the witness_node, it will download the blockchain. The witness_node is also the backend for the light client. I think.

Just tried to buy some TRADE.BTC on internal exchange by clicking first available offer. Instead of purchasing it at the price specified it did this instead and did not initiate the trade.



Why did this happen? Why didn't it just purchase the TRADE.BTC at the set price when I clicked it?

So I guess I just lost 30 BTS trying to do a trade for 30 BTS that did not complete.  :-\
