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.

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.

The script has some parameters that can be setted by the witness and that can change a little bit the resulted value for the pricefeed.
Anyway, the main reason is that there was really a lot of movement on poloniex, with price that keeped jumping up and down, in a very short time...
Let's see if they start to stabilize as soon as btc value stabilizes too

That's explains it a little bit but not fully. Volatility will always be in those markets so we need to live with it and have precise feeds even when volatility increases.
Also, Poloniex was bumpy 24 hours ago, now is quite stable.
[member=120]xeroc[/member], could you confirm that those huge differences can be explained by using different parameter values in the script?

How long ago was your screenshot taked?
Plus, the resulted feed for the asset is the median of all the published price feed by the witnesses... So the resulted price should be more stable even in these situations.

The screen-shot was taken just before I published the post.
But even now you can see that mr.agsexplorer quotes 0.00001265 whereas verbaltech2 quotes 0.00000899 and both feeds are time-stamped very recently.

yes, who is publishing on 1200ish should check (and probably update) their script...

If I download the light client do I need to worry about clearing my browser history?

No.

That will probably get the award for most stupid question but I had to be sure  :P

So the only difference between light client and OpenLedger is with LC I need to do the backups manually but I can access my wallet anytime while with OpenLedger I get updates done automatically but each time I clear my browser history, instead of just using the passphrase to unlock the wallet, I also need to import the file with keys, each time right? Did I miss anything?

Clearing just the browser history should not affect your saved wallet file.

Why 3 processes when on Processes with Network Activity I only get 1 process with 1 PID? Each process should have its own PID but it only shows one.
