ahh .. ok

try this:

1) console: "close"
2) console: "wallet_create new" ... type some new password
3) console: importprivkey PRIVKEY mytempaccountnamefrombter true true   
check if a new account pops up (really should now)


issue is, once the pubkey to the key is known to the wallet and belongs to an other address .. the wallet won't let you create a new account. However.. you need to create a new account with THAT PARTICULAT key as master account key ...

I have another wallet with old accounts... isn't it better to create it there?

wallet_dump_private_key BTSX5e9S3uTdhLsKg7JwPFp79p4VscPAyrPHb4oUzy6kW9FzcirpEf

 rescan found nothing..

Code: [Select]

Code: [Select]
wallet_account_list_public_keys <account_name>   
wow .. that explains a lot ...

you 'real public key' is listed in "wallet_list_my_accounts"

but I think we can fix this:

1) take the pubkey you told BTER to send it it (NOT the one in the transaction) ..
2) console --> wallet_account_list_public_keys THEPUBKEY

Are you sure *_list_public_keys  should return private key?
Anyway I get:

Code: [Select]
>> wallet_account_list_public_keys "BTSX5e9S3uTdhLsKg7JwPFp79p4VscPAyrPHb4oUzy6kW9FzcirpEf"

20006 unknown_account: unknown account
Unknown account name!
    {}

    {}
    bitshares  common_api_client.cpp:1475 bts::rpc_stubs::common_api_client::wallet_account_list_public_keys

    {"command":"wallet_account_list_public_keys"}

2) console --> wallet_account_list_public_keys THEPUBKEY
3) you should get a private key as result ... starting with 5... !!! DO NOT SHARE!!!
4) console: importprivkey PRIVKEY mytempaccountnamefrombter true true          -- do it exactly like this .. replace your privkey
5) see your funds popup in your new account "mytempaccountnamefrombter" (local account)
6) move the funds to your 'real' account or what ever!

Good luck

edit: step 4 initiates a rescan .. and might take some minutes before complete .. you can check the progress with "getinfo"

This is continuation of my questions started here https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=8390.msg131776#msg131776, which is several post before this one.

Ok This has a chance to be on the lead, as far as stupid questions go. Brace yourselves!

1.After figuring out, by their own admission, that even BTER.com does not know to what public key the funds are actually send, when the customer inputs a public key instead of registered account.

2. And seeing that the public key listed in the GUI is not the one I have given bter - I just gave them the one on the top of the list returned by the console.
which command did you issue to get the key "on the top of the list returned by the console"?!

Code: [Select]
wallet_account_list_public_keys <account_name>

I want to try:

Code: [Select]
wallet_account_update_active_key <account_to_update> <pay_from_account> [new_active_key] 
Using as a new_active_key the private key of the public key I gave bter.

Am I going to screw everything big time or am I gona find my missing funds?
That command will definitly not help you! It's doing something competely different.

Ask him to join the the dev hangout tomorrow and talk to Dan himself. Most likely Dan might agree some standards could have been better followed.

Also even if your friend just wants to listen in it would give a much better feel for what the project all about right from the horse's mouth. A $50MM market cap, the fourth highest crypto on the planet, indicates that his opinion of it being "such , such a bad idea" is in the minority.

Come join us on tomorrow's dev chat. Come talk with us. The water's fine :) .

Great! Thanks... I will... when exactly?

Where? the chat here, or is this a video chat?

thanks...
and btw there are no red letters next to the box. Now, it simply says "Must be registered account on the blockchain or unregistered account KEY. "



Yes, I believe the "red message" is on btc38.com
