So I have my delegate almost ready. 

I set the pay rate and registered it...

then I type "wallet_delegate_set_block_production bbx-dns true" and this is what it returns: 

bbx-dns (unlocked) >>> wallet_delegate_set_block_production bbx-dns true
10 assert_exception: Assert Exception
delegate_record.is_delegate(): bbx-dns is not a delegate.
    {"name":"bbx-dns"}
    th_a  wallet.cpp:3018 set_delegate_block_production

    {}
    th_a  common_api_client.cpp:1699 wallet_delegate_set_block_production

    {"command":"wallet_delegate_set_block_production"}
    th_a  cli.cpp:556 execute_command



So I was like..."hm..." and went back and tried to register the delegate again:

wallet_account_register bbx-dns bbx-dns {} 1

and it returns:

bbx-dns (unlocked) >>> wallet_account_register bbx-dns bbx-dns {} 1
20025 duplicate_account_name: duplicate account name
This account name has already been registered!
    {}
    th_a  wallet.cpp:4224 register_account

    {"account_to_register":"bbx-dns","public_data":{},"pay_with_account_name":"bbx-dns","delegate_pay_rate":1}
    th_a  wallet.cpp:4288 register_account

    {"account_name":"bbx-dns","data":{}}
    th_a  client.cpp:3240 wallet_account_register

    {}
    th_a  common_api_client.cpp:1171 wallet_account_register

    {"command":"wallet_account_register"}
    th_a  cli.cpp:556 execute_command



Can someone give some ideas as to what the problem is?

Not a delegate.

your name is already registered on the blockchain ... but NOT as a delegate.

you need to update your registration:
Code: [Select]
help wallet_account_update_registration
Usage:
wallet_account_update_registration <account_name> <pay_from_account> [public_data] [delegate_pay_rate]   Updates the data published about a given account

for a payrate of 1%:
wallet_account_update_registration bbx-dns bbx-dns {} 1

How are user created assets initially distributed? Like free, fund and star?
nope ... the creator of the asset can issue ALL or just part of the assets directly to one of his accounts ...
and sell them at the exchange

That's what allows an IPO/pre-sale on the network .. you define a cap of 1B shares .. create a new share with 1B shares and start issuing and selling them in parts ..
would it be possible to apply a snapshot of a blockchain as the share drop for an user created asset?

So OS X Yosemite is coming very soon.  Typically, when a new OS X comes out, I back up all of my data and do a clean install to get rid of any lingering bugs.  If I do this, is there going to be a problem recovering my wallet, assuming that I have been backing it up regularly?

nope .. all should be fine ... just have AT LEAST the backup you created in-app (jsonBACKUP file) ..
additionally you should store the "wallets" folder which is located somewhere in /Library .. or so ..

Unless you're in the top 101 you can't enable block production.

Did you use a dot in the account you tried to register?
Lack of arbitrage is the problem, isn't it. And this 'should' solves it.

yes you can, but your client/delegate will not be allowed to produce blocks ...
Imho you can also publish a feed ... which will not be counted in the market though

If you want to register a subaccount .. i.e. foo.bar ... you need to own the name "bar" too ..

Hi ya'll, I'm very new to Bitshares, I just started looking into it a few days ago so forgive my ignorance

Anyway, I just came across an article that says BitShares charges $5,700 to create and asset on the exchange  :o

blog.coinprism.com/2014/10/13/assets-on-colored-coins-exchange

Is that for real?? If not we need to contact author and get them to change the article.

Asset registration fee is currently @ "asset_reg_fee": "257,238.37440 BTSX", or about $7000, so the author is more or less correct.
