New Tool from Busy.org - Create New Steem Blockchain Accounts with SteemConnect!

in news •  7 months ago

The community is recruiting tons of new people to the platform, but not everybody is able to signup for an account. It is not good for growth when new users cannot create an account. Anyone who is a legitimate user and wants an account should be able to signup and get started!

Steemit.com Signups

Steemit.com is currently the main on-boarding tool. Most users are able to successfully create an account via Steemit.com, but it does not work for 100% of new users. Not everybody wants to supply their personal information. The site does not accept phone numbers from certain area codes. There have even been some technical difficulties with certain accounts. Plus, even if everything works - there is still a ~1-3 business day waiting period. Not everyone wants to wait :)

AnonSteem

Users also have the option to create accounts via AnonSteem. This has been extremely helpful, since it has pretty much been the only option if Steemit.com doesn't work. Not everybody is comfortable using this though. It requires some crypto knowledge to transfer BTC/LTC to a third-party wallet, and there are extra fees to use the service.

Blockchain API

For anyone who knows how to use the blockchain API with tools like cli_wallet, they are able to create new accounts for themselves and friends. This is pretty much restricted to the 'techie nerds' though. The vast majority of users are not able to use this option.

Introducing SteemConnect! (NEW)

Now anyone with a Steem account can create new accounts on the blockchain using the SteemConnect tool from Busy.org! If you want to create an account for you or your friends, you just need to pay/delegate the account creation fee to open the new account. That is it! The steps are really easy. (Explained below.)

Simple Instructions - Pay the account creation fee (no delegation)

  1. Go to https://v2.steemconnect.com/accounts/create
  2. Enter the account name for the new account you want to create. The box will be green if the name is available; red if it is already in use.
  3. Save and backup the password. It is extremely important that this does not get lost (including due to hard drive failures, fires, etc). If the key is lost, the account is lost. There is NO WAY to get back into the account without the key. Make sure it is safe!
  4. Go to https://steemd.com/ and find the current value for account_creation_fee. Multiply the value by 30. Put this amount in for STEEM. (At the time of writing this post, the account creation fee is 0.5 STEEM, so "15.000 STEEM" goes into that field.)
  5. Make sure you have at least that amount of STEEM in your account. (It should be liquid STEEM, not SP.)
  6. Click "Continue".
  7. Sign the transaction with your account and private active key.
  8. That's it! The account is created. You can verify at https://steemd.com/@accountname.

Advanced Instructions - Setup the account using delegated SP

  1. Go to https://v2.steemconnect.com/accounts/create
  2. Enter the account name for the new account you want to create. The box will be green if the name is available; red if it is already in use.
  3. Save and backup the password. It is extremely important that this does not get lost (including due to hard drive failures, fires, etc). If the key is lost, the account is lost. There is NO WAY to get back into the account without the key. Make sure it is safe!
  4. Go to https://steemd.com/ and find the current value for account_creation_fee. Put this amount in for STEEM. (At the time of writing this post, the account creation fee is 0.5 STEEM, so "0.500 STEEM" goes into that field.)
  5. Make sure you have at least that amount of STEEM in your account. (It should be liquid STEEM, not SP.)
  6. Back on steemd.com, find the value for steem_per_mvests. Calculate 5 * (1,000,000 / steem_per_mvests) * (account_creation_fee * 29.5). Remove the commas and round up slightly. Put this number in for the "Vests" value. (At the time of writing this post, the steem per mvests is 482.485, so "153000.000000 VESTS" goes into that field.)
  7. Make sure you have at least that amount of SP in your account. (It should be SP, not liquid STEEM.)
  8. Click "Continue".
  9. Sign the transaction with your account and private active key.
  10. That's it! The account is created. You can verify at https://steemd.com/@accountname.

Some Extra Notes

  1. If you are creating an account for a friend, make sure they understand how important it is for them to save and backup their password. It is between you and your friend, but is usually a good idea for them to change their password so that only they have access to their account. Their account will not be fully secure until 30 days after they change their password, since you still have the original owner password which gives you the ability to change their keys and even steal their account via the "account recovery" process.
  2. For any accounts that you create, you are designated as the "Recovery Account". This means if the account is hacked, you will need to assist with recovering your account. Contact the Busy.org team if you end up needing to do this.
  3. Be very careful when typing in the numbers. If you accidentally put in too much, it will transfer/delegate whatever amounts you put into the new account.
  4. If you are delegating SP, currently the only option to un-delegate is with the blockchain API. If you do not know how to use this, then you likely will not be able to get this SP back unless/until a third-party tool is developed that allows you to un-delegate.
  5. You can transfer or delegate more than the account creation fee. This may be useful if you want your friend to start out with an extra boost.
  6. Official support for the tool is provided by the Busy.org team. If you run into issues though, you can reply to this post and I'll do my best to help out.

Thanks to everyone in the Busy.org team for providing us with this awesome tool!

You say CLI is for 'techie nerds', but I feel like you are dismissing something that is a hidden gem of sorts. Let me show you the power of CLI.

With steempy, you can just do this:
steempy newaccount throwaway777 --account furion
It will ask you for a password (pick something secure), generate your keys and save them in a BIP38 encrypted wallet. Thats it.

Ok, how about delegation?
steempy newaccount throwaway777 --account furion --fee "9 STEEM"
In this example, you are only paying 9 STEEM in fee, and delegating the rest of the cost. steempy will calculate that for you, and do all the things required.

·

I just tested it and it works great :)
Anyway when I use the "--fee 9 STEEM" option I end up with an error. Tested it with STEEM, without & "-fee 9STEEM".... always end up in the same error, any idea? Will later try it again and post the error.

Thanks for an answer!

·
·

You're right, there is an error. Try wrapping amount in quotes, like so:

steempy --no-broadcast newaccount skdfhkshjdflshdf --fee "9 STEEM"
·
·
·

Awesome! You are the best :)
I am learning around coding since a few days. Anyway when need a new topic for an article.... I am wondering now how they make the recovery process - lol. Thanks a lot!

·

Thats awesome info - it would be great if there would be some more tutorials about it.... will try :)

·

THANK YOu i was JUSt about to ask this! You deserve every dollar youre getting right now! from comments and pposts!
I am literally crying right now because i have been asking if there is a backup account creation, or if there was a way i could just PAy the initial account creation fee of the free fw dollars in steem the new accounts get! And I wanted to make sure I could use steemit if steemitcom was down! Now i see that with blockchain API That is possible rigt if steemit.com was down I could still initiate a powerdown and powerdown and claim my steem and spend it right?

God this is HUGEnews i am glad we are all realizing how big this is this is EXACTLy what SO MANy of s were asking for! I cant believe i hadnt seen this for 12 days!

·
·

@ackza , how to power down without steemit? there is not the option on busy.org ....

·
·
·

Now we have Vessel by @jesta and also i believe we do have power down option on vessel yup we do! @jesta click that find his latest posts!

·

Great comment - appreciate the insight into the power of CLI :)

·

I keep getting error "egg_info". Trying to install it on Kali Linux following the directions from steempy. Is this common?
linux-fail.jpg

Also do you have to have an account to use "newaccount"? Or can I use a Bitshares trading account?

·

Hi, does your steempy support the 'update_account' command to change all your keys?
Are there light CLI wallets (with a remote node) you know about?

·

That's awesome. How does someone get steempy up and running though? Is it something that someone with little to no computer knowledge can do?

·
·

little to no computer knowledge can do

This depends on whether it runs on Windows (which is what most people have). I don't use that platform, so I don't know, but PR's are welcome.

The installation is as simple as pip install steem. Additionally, if on OSX, you might have to install Python 3.5+ (brew install python)

·

Thanks for the advice!

But I always have error:

Please help me

·

Could you please explain more about creation fee? Is it fix value or can change? Thank you so much!

·

Thanks @furion just tried it. This is awesome.

·

This was incredibly helpful!

The method outlined in the post sounded like it would be a bit costly for me to get my family's accounts made, but this method looks awesome. I'll get to it :)


I've written a post on the late, great Chuck Berry's music. It's pretty musical. :)

·

steempy is the best thing ever. I use it often in managing my witness servers. The documentation is a lacking a bit though, one needs to look at the cli.py code to figure what parameters to use.

Thanks for the link that's a pretty cool tool and definitely would be easier if i wanted to get my parents on here.

·

Wow! This is so impressive! This is so awesome. I love it so much. I'll be checking this out later this week.

Great tool, thank you. up voted and followed you.

And for

If you are delegating SP, currently the only option to un-delegate is with the blockchain API. If you do not know how to use this, then you likely will not be able to get this SP back unless/until a third-party tool is developed that allows you to un-delegate.

There is a easy way to do it with official STEEM library for Python

Just delegate 0 vesting_shares to delegatee!

For example:

from steem import Steem
steem = Steem()
steem.delegate_vesting_shares('user1', '0 VESTS', chinadaily)
·

Cool, thanks for the tip!

·
·

Nice post and smart method. How about the security of this method? As the active key is handled to a third-party website.

·
·
·

Very glad you replied me. Thanks, I am going to have a look.

First thanks, did get this to work multiple times after many failed attempts.
The "simple Instructions . . ." should clearly state that the "vests" field should just be left all zeros. This one step left out left me scratching my head and attempting to use the "Advanced Instructions . . ." which no matter how I tried could not create an account with, error this, error that. . .
As a last ditch effort I decided to try the "Simple Instructions. . ." and just leave the "vests" field populated with zeros. The cost was 6 STEEM (currently @ $1.56USD so $9.36USD) and it worked every time.
Well worth the $9.36 to avoid the headaches, hardest part of this was that I had to learn to deposit steem into my account to pay for it with, but I figured this out too. Using Changelly I just swapped some ETH (could be anything really) to STEEM and when asked for deposit address just put Steemit user name in "user name" field, memo address (to get this click on your wallet, then click on "permissions" and scroll down) in "memo" field, and finish the transaction. Within a few minutes you will have Steem in your steemit wallet and can use it to create accounts for others.
So to recap if possible to edit this post it would be really awesome to add "leave vests field populated with zeros" to the simple instructions.
Thanks again for a great post. Now to learn how to upvote it. . .

·

Thanks :)
It doesn't let me edit unfortunately, but I upvoted your comment so that hopefully more people will read it if they have similar issues. Glad you got it figured out :)

·

Glad to! Thank you and the Busy.org team so much for making the process so easy. This tool is a game-changer!

·
·

Pulling through as a leader every time. Thank you!

That's what I was waiting for. Thanks.

Now I can give an account. Nice.

I don't know how many times I've told people to follow @timcliff for his latest news and updates... I've run out of fingers.

...but it is posts like this.. that he brings to us... and I just sit astonished.

THANK YOU @timcliff

P.S, anyone with a steemit account can vote for timcliff as a witness. I did. Just login with your ACTIVE key and then go to https://steemit.com/~witnesses

·

Thanks @intelliguy :) I always appreciate your kind words/support!

Great bunch of guys over at busy! :) Thanks for the post @timcliff! :)

·

Agree 100% :) Welcome.

Oh wow this is great! 😎
So the account is created instantly? This would have come in handy when my brother had to wait over a week for his account to be created.

·

Yes. It takes only a few seconds after you have entered all the information and click the button to create the account.

I say again, these are the reasons I voted for your witness long ago, and I encourage others to follow this post and consider doing the same, (end of post = witness instructions)

You put so much work into this place man.

The good advice by @furion here is a beauty nugget also.

Have a good week Tim.

·

Thanks @barrydutton - same to you! :)

·
·

I feel barely well-informed to make witness decisions, but articles like this are moving me in that direction.

·
·
·

This is critical for the platform to decenteralize away from Steemit inc. Great work busy

Very cool!

I wonder if this will cause a spike in account creations as non-tech savvy people begin to account squat. Previously that was a little more difficult to do.

·

Well now that you have given them the idea they will ;)

·
·

Security by obfuscation is no security at all. Heheh.

·
·
·

Hehe, true. Yes, you are right. It probably will increase to some extent. It isn't super cheap though, which will likely help prevent it to some extent. It currently costs 15 STEEM or .5 STEEM + 72.5 delegated.

·
·
·
·

Yeah, not too far off from buying a real domain and squatting on it, and people still do that. It's a tough situation. On one hand, I'm all for the early adopters who take risks and are rewarded for it. On the other hand I'm like, "Really? Did you actually provide value to anyone or are you more like an ambulance chasing lawyer trying to make a quick buck?" I don't know that regulations are needed other than social shaming maybe? So far, it seems, it hasn't yet been a big problem here. Maybe in the future, when the stakes are higher, it will be. Maybe by the we'll have some version of ICANN running on EOS to manage disputes for us. :)

·
·
·
·
·

I share the exact same thoughts. Then again, I feel like the community will explode with activities as more members join...

Can't stop the account squatting.

This is huge , thanks for your hard work @busy team!

If you are delegating SP, currently the only option to un-delegate is with the blockchain API. If you do not know how to use this, then you likely will not be able to get this SP back unless/until a third-party tool is developed that allows you to un-delegate.

Vessel

·

Thanks! I did talk to @jesta about it too. Since it is still in alpha/beta stage, I didn't want to list it as "the way to do it", but that is what I had in mind when I wrote "unless/until a third-party tool is developed" :)

Let me see if i understand this right, i can create a new account for someone like a friend with this?, i just need to give 15 steems?

·

That is correct. The registration fee (set by the witnesses) can go up or down, but currently it costs 15 STEEM to create a new account. With this new tool, you can create a new account for your friends just by paying the 15 STEEM. Also, the 15 STEEM just goes into their account, so it is not really 'lost'. It is just given to your friend :)

·
·

Uhmmm seems interesting, this new account is created instantly?... Is the traditional way on steemit.com still working?

·
·
·

Pretty much instantly. It only takes a few seconds.

The traditional way on Steemit.com does still work, but since Steemit, Inc. is paying the account creation fee - they are reviewing the accounts to prevent abuse. It is a manual process, and users may be in the waiting list 1-3 business days before their account is approved.

·
·
·
·

yes i know... i waited 3 days for mine... :)

Can you undelegate after they have achieved enough SP to vote and/or post? If so, after cooldown, can that SP be redelegated to help more of my local friends who don't have emails or phones?

·

Yes. If you delegate 0 SP to a user, it will remove the delegation. After the cool-down period, it will return to your account and you can reuse again.

Here is a link with instructions on how to do delegations:
https://steemit.com/delegation/@timcliff/tutorial-how-to-delegate-sp-to-another-user-using-the-steemconnect-tool-from-busy-org

·
·

Awesome! Thx for the 411 :)

Wow! Great news. Signing up was just hellish. Great work by the busy team. Thanks for the instructions tim... definately an account worth following

·

wow, this is a life saver. Thank you for this important update.

Nice contribution @timcliff
lovely!
point 4. and 6. not really KISS, we are improving it for sure ;)

·

It works great for iteration 1! I think the users can do some basic math :) We at least have an interface to do it now, which we didn't have before. As I said to @fabian, this is really a game-changer :) The additional enhancements such as auto-calculating the fees are nice to have, but nothing wrong with adding them later in 'iteration 2'.

Thank you for the detailed instructions, Tim and great work by the busy team. They surely have been quite busy at busy :D

·

Indeed :)

Careful using Steemconnect cause if you don't log the password in the beginning then you're done. Believe me, you feel like a jackass after you do that.

Good one, congrats Busy for the implementation and @timcliff for the tutorial.

Amazing news! Let's hope this brings in some new people to Steemit/busy.org :)


Ive been asking for thisa long time! and its finally here! how did i not catch this 12 ddays ago This is HUGE news! the ability to create new accounts on our own is AMAZING news!

Now if steemit.com is ddown can i still use busy.org to sen and recieve steem and initiate a powerdown and still acess my steempower etc and make upvotes?

Its all possible bbecause the steem blockchain which has all our accounts and posts and steem and steempower is all decentralzied right?!?!?

·

That is correct!

·
·

how to power down without steemit?

·
·
·

Check out the Vessel tool, developed by @jesta.

·
·
·

Check out Vessel ( developed by @jesta ).

Edit: Nevermind, I tried again after a few hours, and it worked now ;) Thanks for creating this great service!

Hello, @timcliff.
I'm having problems creating the account. I follow the guide, and get the following error:

"Error
Oops! Something goes wrong, open your console to see the error details."

And I'm pretty sure I did everything correctly. I even tried to have a STEEM value a lot higher than the fee x 30, just to see if that was the issue, but apparently it's not. I've tried both the active key and my master password.

Any chance that you know what I should do to make it work? :)

·

Same here! Must be an intermittent issue then. I've been trying to create my wife's account for a while now and always get the "Oops! Something goes wrong" error

UPDATE: I tried in FireFox instead of Chrome and it worked :)

·
·

Hey guys, it doesn't matter which browser I use, I always end up getting the "Oops" error, and I have been trying since this morning (it's not 3 PM) :(

best news ever :)

Yea! Very, very simple for a newbie!

Many thanks for this Tim. Perfect for me to hand over to my friends :)

·

Welcome! Just to be clear though, I just wrote the guide. The tool was made by the fabulous group of devs over at Busy.org :)

·
·

Sure. I understood that. You just made it nice and clear for us :)

Hi, thanks for the information. I'm considering creating another account, which wouldn't need to be anonymous. However, I want to keep this account anonymous. Is there a way I can pay the initial steem without leaving a mark in the blockchain for people to see?

That is what I believe will happen if I send the steem to the service and create a new account. And I don't want to use anon steem, because I'm not sure about the safety of my account if I do.

·

With SteemConnect, the new account will be tied to whichever account you use to create it. It sounds like you want to use AnonSteem. I've used it many times before and consider it safe. You can also change your keys as soon as you get the account.

Excellent! @timcliff🙏🏻 Very helpful read for all of us who are newbie steem- babies😇

Very useful, great work @timcliff & team.

I already joined busy.org. GUI is so nice.
And thank your for gifting us a great alternate way to open steemit account.
Marvelous post. Upvoted already :)

@timcliff, Could you tell us what you know about the security of a user's active key when submitting it through steemconnect to generate a new account, please? I noticed there's SSL, but anything further?

·

I do not. You would need to ask the Busy.org team for that info.

This is a really great way to make accounts. Pay for a new username and the smart people will be all over this for 15 STEEM.

such a good site (busy.org)!!

Amazing, thanks! My friend has waited over a week and I think he gave up. Maybe I'll have to set him up like this.
Is his username already locked since he is just waiting for a WIF?

·

You can check https://steemd.com/@accountname. If it says "Page not found" then the account does not exist on the blockchain yet. If it doesn't exist yet, then you are still free to use it.

·
·

Hey thanks. Apparently it doesn't exist yet.

·
·

This is a very good tip!

This is so cool! I can get my daughter's own account now!

Everything in this post and all of the comments helps very much!! Thank you everyone!

A lot of options.... but some of them are third party. This sounds like technicians taking advantages of the users and the program. Why is the program allowing this? I think it is confusing and risky for the platform Steemit.

·

It is a risk, and you should not use any third party tool that you are not comfortable with. The blockchain API is public, so anyone can build their own tools and applications that interface with the blockchain. It is that way by design.

Update: As of today, it looks like account_creation_fee is 0.2 STEEM. So, even cheaper and easier, if I'm doing this right (so 6 STEEM total? And why is it that amount times 30?)

steemcreationfee.JPG

·

6 STEEM is correct based on the account creation fee of 0.2. 30x is the formula that the blockchain uses. 0.2 is the minimum amount that must be used if doing the delegated (more complicated) method.

·
·

It just is, though? There's no particular reasoning behind the number 30?

·
·
·

Not sure. The developers wrote it that way, I never asked why. One of the main purposes of the account creation fee is to ensure users have enough SP to cover the bandwidth requirements to interact with the blockchain.

·
·
·
·

This is definitely over my head.

Do the things we write actually interact with code that parses them and makes them useful to whatever the blockchain actually is? Or is it a facade/gimmick to make our silly musings feel meaningful, and there's really just magic money being paid for the things people like?

·
·
·
·
·

Quite a few people have used the tool to open accounts for themselves and friends. I think it is a little more than a facade :)

If you are interested in using it, let me know and I can help.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Wait. I thought we were talking about Steemit. I am using it, aren't I?

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I don't know if you understand this post.. SteemConnect is a tool that can be used for users to create new accounts.

·
·
·

I'm sure there is reasoning, I just don't know what it is.

Thank you for this information, I will try busy.org ! :)

This is wonderful, thank you so much :) Bright Blessings!

Thats great @timcliff I just found this link

Awesome, thanks for the tutorial.
I had some problems but I was typing "6" instead of "6.000 STEEM" :D

·

Yeah, it is very picky about syntax :)

Excellent resource, very valuable for future signups. My assistant waited 3 days for account activation on steemit.com. In the beginning we thought it didn't go through but later she got the account activation email.

Excellent

i have successfully un-delegate two of my accounts with vessel but after a week my SP didnt came back... what to do now?

·

Are you sure it has been more than 7 days?

·
·

i guess delegated sp for account creation can not be revoked or it is a bug.

·
·
·

Oh, account creation takes longer. I am pretty sure it is 30 days.

·
·
·
·

then it's fine. thanks for the info mate!

·
·

yes, it was 11 days ago.

Very helpful. Thanks!

Thanks for the article.
It didn't explain the thing about vests but if you leave that alone it's all good.

Very useful information! There are mostly many ways that lead to Rome.
And you gave us a suitable summary. Thanks.

Thanks! I have recruited several of my friends that are still waiting to for their acceptance email

·

How long as it been?

·
·

3 days for one of them

·
·
·

If the accounts are not created by Tuesday, direct message me on steemit.chat with the email addresses and account names that they tried to use, and I'll try to help.

Hi Tim, I need your help. I've waited over 8 days for an account approval. I ask for help on the steemit chat and they told me that I should use another computer for registration but my mother and I have only one laptop. I don't have 6 SP for transfer. Why my account was approved and hers don't?

Help me please. Greetings from Venezuela

·

I'll review tonight and reply in Steemit chat.

Thanks so much @timcliff My wife was having some tech difficulties getting her account approved through the regular Steemit onboarding - your tool allowed me to just get her up and running :) You rock! Following you now :)

·

Awesome :)

THANK YOU FOR THIS :) as can be seen, the community loves it and you're well on your way to $2K!

Thanks so much for making this post. Will use this post's guide help my friend open an account.

Thank you for informing us, very good!

really good thing

Thank you
I made an account for my friend quikly

·

Good to know there @slowwalker !!

Have a nice week my friend. Say hi to your mom for me, LOL, she is the star of many of your posts, and I like that!

Yes, @timcliff... I have tried delegation SP and it work. This account I will use it to train or for a seminar about steemit. I still pondering and thinking to contact my former headmaster and my former campus editor to introduce about steemit. :)

·

Awesome, you totally should :)

Finally! This should have been done a year ago.

·

Better late than never :)

Plus, perfect timing. My friend @businesswri's brother was struggling to sign up. Thank you!

I just don't get why Steemit doesn't want to have an easy way to get new users in.

That is really mis-characterising the situation. They are working hard to make the signup process as easy and smooth as possible, but it costs them money each time they open an account. With the current prices, it is either around $15 worth of STEEM per account, or delegating around $75 worth. Lots of users were abusing the system and creating hundreds/thousands of accounts just to milk the free STEEM. They had to switch over to a manual approval process to review the accounts before creating them to cut down on the abuse. They are working on a way to automate this, but it will take time to develop something that works well and can't be abused.

Well explained, once again Timmer.

I am a hockey guy, we make up nicknames, I have been doing this awhile LOL

I haven't been called Timmer in years, lol. My best friends mom used to call me that back in elementary school. Good times :)

Cliffy is my dad's nickname :) I'd prefer Timmer if I have any choice in the matter :)

·

That's why they should be selling the accounts! I proposed it almost a year ago: We need an easy way to buy new accounts.

But for some weird reason that I haven't yet understood, Steemit wants to only give away free accounts, even when it means a lot of work.

Well, glad the Busy.org team filled the need :)

A very useful and profitable notice.@ timcliff

Working on it. I think technically I'm about 1/2 way there :)

thank you @timcliff for explaining that smoothly

I have a question! I created my account a week ago, but I never had to pay any fee to become a new member. Why does it charge you then when creating an account by SteemConnect?

·

If you create an account through Steemit.com, Steemit, Inc. pays the account creation fee.

Great post !!! Thank you for sharing with us

Thank you for this mate, learned alot from this post. keep posting.
