Looking forward for Blockstack to become a popular user platform in the future. And perhaps artists can create their own pages and forums, as well as stores online without security compromises.

@procket34 nice article. just found this through link in folding coin.net is folding coin wallet is same with LTB coin ? thanks
Not really knowledgeable on folding coin, but I believe both folding coin and LTBcoin are counterparty tokens, held in your counterparty wallet. Maybe someone else can better explain it?

@bitsol I am going to sticky this post!!! Take that as a compliment. Thanks ~//~Posted on October 16, 2014 at 12:33 AM
So for those of you who want to "Sign a Message" instead of "Make a Small Donation" I am going to attempt to make this guide as easy as possible. I will be importing your BTC counterwallet address to blockchain.info as counter party still produces "invalid" signatures.
I will assume you already have a bitcoin wallet with https://blockchain.info/wallet/ If not, go create that now and come back to this guide remember: save your private keys and passwords in a responsible manner (pretend they are real wallets, full of real money and don't carelessly leave them laying around for anyone to pick up)
So you have created a blockchain wallet, and a counterwallet and your at the LTB home page logged in to your account and are at the "Dashboard" page. Should look like this:
Step 1: Click on the "Address Manager" tab on left down toward bottom. You should see something like this (obviously your address will be different):
So Click on "Sign a Message" and you should be here (again your message will be different):
Step 2: Leave this page open and in another tab on your browser go log into your counterwallet which should put you somewhere like this:
Click on "Address Actions" and then "Show Private Key"" which should bring up this warning screen:
Assuming no one is looking over your shoulder with a camera to snap shot your private key, Click on "Show Private Keys" again and you should see this: (your key will be different of course and this one is an empty wallet)
Step 3: Now leaving this tab also open and in another (3rd) tab open www.blockchain.info and log into your blocckchaiin wallet you should see this:
Now Click on "import / export" and you will get this warning:
Click on "I Understand" (even if you don't) and your brought to here:
Enter your Blockchain wallet password and Click "continue" now you should see this: (sorry I didn't realize I had left a BTC Address in the top field, the fields will all be blank)
Step 4: Now return to the tab with your cocunterwallet open in it and highlight and copy (ctrl + C) the "private key should look like this:
Step 5: Now move over to the tab with your blockchaiin wallet open in it and paste (ctrl +V) that private key in the field labeled "Import Private Key" as you can see I have done here:
Now click "Add Private Key" and your taken to here:
Now here your given two choices, but for this guide we are just going to choose "Import Directly" which means any BTC paid to this address will be kept in this address.So if you haven't yet, Click "Import Directly" and you land here:
Click "Import Directly" once again and you should see something flash up in the right telling you it was imported correctly and land back at your wallet home page, if you now Click on "Receive Money" you should see two addresses like this:
The lower one is the one you just imported. So to the right of that address Click "Address Actions" and then "Sign Message" you should see this:
Step 6: Now return to the tab with your LTB wallet open (1st Tab) and under "Sign Message" you will see a unique set of 12 alphanumeric characters, this is the "message" you are trying to sign. So highlight and copy those (Ctrl +C). Below you see mine highlighted:
Step 7: Now back to the tab with your blockchaini wallet (3rd Tab) and we are going to paste this in the field labeled "Message" where it says "enter the message you wish to sign". (Click inside the box and hit Ctrl + V). When that is done Click "Sign Message" and you should see this:
Now highlight and copy (Ctrl + C) that long alphanumeric "signature" Once that is done return to the tab with your LTB wallet in it (1st Tab). Under where it says "Sign Message" there is a box to paste the "signature" You can see mine is pasted in that box below:
Step 8: Last step is to just Click "verify"! Now if everything was done correctly (and I made this guide correctly) You should see this:
See a Green "Verified!" ?? well there you have it! Your ready to collect LTBCoins for your participation in Adam's brilliant little experiment (not saying he did it all by himself mind you, but I think of him as the Chief Creative Officer) and it is brilliant!
Hope this guide helps some of you with no BTC to donate! Oh you can now go log out of all your wallets open in those three tabs and close the tabs. Hope you recorded all your private keys and passwords securely and FYI: For anyone thinking I exposed my private keys making this guide, all the keys and accounts shown in this guide are empty and created only to create this guide. . .there is no money to steal so go earn it producing something of value!

Jack Taylor here, I have been working toward the change that is upon us for decades. Live debt free, own my own house(s) and a commercial shop, which is about 6 acres to mow. I garden, compost, rebuild old Honda Civics, fix and build things (including the houses), and write occasionally on whatalmostis.wordpress.org among other things. I like to think I can fix about anything but a broken heart and a bowling ball.
I first heard about bitcoins in 2009 while trading on the commodities and options exchanges, but was to busy to research enough to understand it (I am not a geek) and so it was 2013 before I dug in enough for the light bulb to go off. I built a few mining rigs to learn more, bought and sold and traded coins, and found a few good people like Chis Ellis, Adam Levine, and of course Andreas Antonopolous to listen to and read and learn from and I have been a supporter ever since.
I do not believe the psychopaths in charge of running the world (and banks) will ever willingly stop their insanity short of blowing up the planet, but I also believe they derive every single once of power they use from the rest of us and we need to stop feeding that beast our creative energy to destroy with. The change has already happened, it is the effects of that change we are now experiencing.
I think Adam's LTBCoin experiment is brilliant, I am full on behind it and vs 2 when this one succeeds. Only wish I understood it as deeply as Adam does. . .working on that.
peace all, JT ~//~.Posted on August 9, 2014 at 9:34 AM
Okay so it took me a while to get this whole process, which is super easy, figured out so I could begin entering the "magic words" and receive LTBCoin and I figured after assisting two other people (to be sure my method worked) I would create a simple step by step guide on how to get it up and running for those NOT so geeky people (like me), who want to participate in this incredible experiment of Adam's called LTBCoin.
Step 1: go to https://www.counterwallet.co/
You should see this:
Click on "Create New Wallet" you should now see something like this:
The 12 word phrase will of course be different then in this picture because it is your private key. (this is the way you access your wallet, also the thing you keep to yourself, because if someone else gets it they can empty your wallet, NOT FUN!) If for whatever reason you don't like any of the 12 words, just click the little refresh box to the right of them until you find a set you like. Now I will assume you found a set of words you like? So copy and paste them somewhere (say an encrypted file?), print a copy and hide it, put that encrypted file on a flash drive, or all of the above. IMPORTANT: if you lose this 12 word phrase, you lose your LTBCoins, remember that is why we are doing this, to get LTBCoins!
Step 4: Check the box that says you have copied the 12 words (your private key) then click "Continue" you should now see this:
Step 5: This is where you can enter something a bit easier to remember when accessing your counterwallet, but this is the "Easy Guide" so we will skip this. Click on "Create Wallet"
Step 6: Accept the terms, I read them all first, even though there is only one choice. . .Accept or go away! Now you should be here:
That is all there is to creating a counterparty wallet. This wallet will hold multiple different crypto currency, notice you have BTC (Bitcoins) and XCP (Counterparty Tokens)? Did you happen to notice there is no LTB? This is because Counterparty will not create a sub wallet for every conceivable coin this wallet can hold. When you are sent your first LTBCoins (or whatever coins) it will automatically generate an LTB sub wallet at that time. So don't fear you have done everything right up to this point.
Step 7: Leaving the Counterwallet.co page open and in another tab go on over to the lets talk bitcoin site here: http://letstalkbitcoin.com/account Click on the "Login/ Register" in the upper right Corner. (I will assume you can register if you haven't already to create an LTB account and that you will also record your user name and password in a safe place). So assuming that you should now be logged in to your LTB account and see this:
Obviously your account will not be "jti8899" because that is me.You should see "Dashboard" on the left with "Menu" under that, you need to click on "Account Settings" to get to here:
Step 8: If you followed my instructions in Step 7 you should have the counterwallet open in another tab, go back to that tab:
Now copy (hold down Ctrl key and hit C) the BTC address (26 alpha numeric address to the right of "My Address #1" in this picture it is 1LvxRscg7JzrK6A2gBmVi83hbrEwE8WBkL)
Step 9: Now go back to the tab with LTB site and paste that address in the 4th field from the top, marked "LTBcoin Compatible Address" like This:
If you were referred by someone enter their user name in the "Referred By" field, -or- if you feel this Guide was helpful, feel free to place my user name (jti8899) in the "Referred By" field. Last enter your LTB password in the "Enter current password to complete changes" field and click on "submit" You should see this:
This is where you have to decide to sign a note or "Make a Small Donation", since this is a good cause we are going to "Make a Small Donation" so click that and you should be here: (To sign a message see this guide I made: http://letstalkbitcoin.com/forum/post/easy-guide-to-sign-a-message-to-verify-your-ltb-address )
Send a small Donation of a couple $$ to that bitcoin address and support LTB Network and all the great hosts. Okay we still have one more step
Step 10: You should still be on the LTB Account page. On left under "LTBCoin" you will see "Magic Words" and "Address Manager" if you Click on "Address Manager" and scroll to bottom of page you should see this:
You are now set up to receive LTBCoins. If you listen to a new podcast and hear a magic word, just come back here, login, and click on "Magic Words" you will see this:
Enter the magic word and after the next Saturday, check your counter party wallet! You will now see an LTB Sub wallet like this:
There are many more ways to earn LTBCoins and participate in the experiment, but at least now your registered and ready to go.
Hope this guide helps

@jti8899 Belltone, I have a few questions: 1) When I created my counterwallet it only generated (1) address, is this right? 2) When I added my address to LTB (which shows up in the "address manager") it did not add any LTB wallet to my counterwallet address I still only see BTC and XCP. 3) When I sent the BTC to my counter party wallet, it worked, when I sent the BTC to LTB to verify address it seemed to work, but in my "dashboard" it says "It looks like you have not yet registered for the LTBcoin Rewards Program! " so am I still not in?
thanks, JT ~//~
For point #2, you wont see any actual LTBcoin in your acount until you receive a payment from it (payments are sending out tomorrow)
Point #3 kind of sounds like a possible bug. I will look into it!
Thanks for the answer to question #2. This should be included information in every guide! Though it may be self evident to some, it will not be to many.
