its in the genesis block:
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/keyid/keyid/master/libraries/blockchain/genesis_keyid.json
Code: [Select]
        [
            "1NEnwHhqPg5UBAWUbedgcZXUXQSETWxq6Y",
            357935353000
        ],

It should work pretty much the same way as with btsx
see here:
http://wiki.bitshares.org/index.php/Bitshares-x-how-to#Attempting_a_wallet_import_to_receive_BTSX_from_February_28th_snapshot

alternatively .. open you PTS wallet and dump the private key via the debug console:
Code: [Select]
dumpprivkey 1NEnwHhqPg5UBAWUbedgcZXUXQSETWxq6Y
.. and import that one manually in the keyid client

Now theres another problem when I try to export my PTS private key.   Private key for address ....... is not known (code -4)

I just sent some fund to the above Free KeyID faucet.  But the fund is running out fast because the registration fee has gone up a lot to 500DNS.  We need donors! Please help to contribute to the faucet by sending your DNS to ID : bitcube.  Many thanks!

Hi

I don't quite get the procedure yet, it seems…
I got the message that I was successfully registered.
After opening Keyid again and resetting the database, I entered my passphrase.
Now it asks me again to register on the blockchain?

Ok it seems I had to press open GUI legacy…
Now how do I import my PTS wallet to claim my DNS?
I am running the keyid on osx

Best regards

I would help by PTS client not allowing me to dump my private key ... so I can't verify what Xeroc said earlier works.   Does anyone know if there are issues with Bitshares-PTS client

You need to be sure that you have this address "1NEnwHhqPg5UBAWUbedgcZXUXQSETWxq6Y" in your wallet.  The error message is saying you do not have this address in the wallet.

Try the steps as suggested by xeroc - first dump the private address in the PTS wallet and later import it in the KeyID wallet.

How do you dump a private address in the PTS wallet?

Cube, thanks for your reply.   My Protoshares address is in my wallet, but I still cannot get my private key.  When I import the PTS wallet through KeyID client, I only get rewarded for the PTS I donated to AGS, but not the PTS I owned when the snapshot was taken.

I'm wondering if there is an issue with the PTS client not allowing my private key to be retrieved, therefore my PTS donations are not being honored.

How do you dump a private address in the PTS wallet?

back up the account to a .dat file?
that worked
now importing it into the keyid client… seems import wallet in the tabs does not work?
does the complete blockchain has to be downloaded first before I can import?

best regards

An error can occur on attempting to dumpprivkey, which does not explain that you need to first unlock your wallet. To unlock your PTS wallet for a bit, you can use this command in the console / debug window:

walletpassphrase <your_password> 9999999 true

Then you can try dumpprivkey.

On second thought, it is easier for a new user to import the PTS wallet.dat (ie ignore the dump-pts-key step).  You do not need to wait for the blockchain to sync before importing. The balance will show up after the blockchain is synced.
