How big is the bitshares blockchain in Gigabytes? and how big will it be in a year?

Also if I send a transaction and write some text in the memo does that text get stored in the blockchain?

At this time the blockchain has ~1.69 million blocks and ~236 megabytes when stored on disk (not counting the index and the object database).

The memo is stored in the blockchain, but it's encrypted with the recipient's memo key.

Is it possible to pick and choose proposals/committee members/witnesses and then cede whatever voting power you didn't overwrite on to a proxy?

if not that's an idea.

It's not possible, simply because you cannot use only a part of your voting power (unless you split your funds over several accounts of course).

Thanks guys.  I have a lifetime membership but it is still charging me 30bts for a transfer.  Is this part of the cashback program or is there something I am missing?

It's part of the cashback program, yes. Fees over 100 BTS vest for 90 days, but smaller fees are available to withdraw right away (or at least after hourly maintenance?)

Is there a way to check who and what proxies are voting for?
I saw a preview of such a feature on cryptofresh.com (@roadscape: when would this feature be public?)

It's public, but I don't have links to it yet on the site itself..

Offline well.attenuated

an account has lots parts

account name
account password
account back up
account brain key

which bits are need to fully restore a account?

My understanding:
wallet backup is needed to restore the current accounts in the wallet
password are needed to unlock wallet to send funds from accounts
There is no account brainkey per-se, but
wallet brainkey allows for restoration of accounts CREATED IN THAT WALLET but not imported accounts.
username is just tied to the account and would be included in the backup

We've had this nice thread: Payment business: comparison between Bitshares and it's competitors.
Does anyone remember a forum thread offering a similar comparison but regrading the exchange business?

Was it a comparison of DEX vs. centralized exchanges?

an account has lots parts

account name
account password
account back up
account brain key

which bits are need to fully restore a account?

My understanding is that we have the two recovery methods:

1. Wallet backup + wallet password. The surest way to recover everything including unclaimed balances (and in the future probably stealth balance addresses/history)
2. Brain key. The brain key alone should be enough to recover the wallet and the accounts created within it. Unclaimed balances will need to be re-imported. Also, I'm not sure if it will recover keys that were imported manually.

Could someone clarify what the brain keys recover (or don't)?
Do the wallets continue to use deterministic keys, and is that how multiple accounts are recovered?

fake edit: .. ok, I tried importing my brain key into a new wallet (New Wallet > Custom brainkey) but nothing showed up. Wasn't there was a separate "Import Brainkey" feature somewhere?

Could some Dev update the BitShares annoucements thread with the latest release? It already missed 2 at least since last post was from 13 Oct. I would post it but since all posts were made by BM..
