    and click on "new adress". Right click on the new adress and copy it on the
    new account you have made.
    
    When you make more then 4 accounts your IP will be banned.
    

    Staking

    Normally you mine with your computer and get coins as a reward. 
    Thats how transactions are confirmed. Thats called Proof of Work (PoW).
    
    But there is also a System called Proof of Stake (PoS).
    
    The transaction confirmations are not done with hardware but with already 
    owned coins. An amount of your coins are on the stake, while they are used 
    for staking. That depends a little on the implementation.
    But basically you get a certain percentage of your coins as a reward.
    Some people think, they can "earn" here, but that's nonsence, because if 
    the market cap stays stable, the single coins are worth less, if new coins 
    are generated. So you just "keep" your value, if you are staking. And "loose", 
    if you are not... Its like in a bank if you get 2% interest and the inflation 
    is 2% as well. You only "earn", if there are transaction fees and if those are 
    also payed to the staker.
    
    ATTENTION: Your wallet must be unlocked to stake.

  • hi
    with 2 pc with same ip i will earn 2 times more or the rewars are divided?



  • @Bo do i need diff. emailadresses, to setup the allowed 4 accounts, or can i use the one i signed in, and change wallet adress



  • @affenmann666 if you are asking by create 4 different accounts, will need 4 email adress and 4 diferent registration required.



  • @joao ty



  • ok i tried to setup second account but i dont get activationlink sent



  • Besides downloading the wallet on bitrad.io, is there any other web-based wallet I can use to withdraw the BRO?



  • @brbitrad No.



  • Hi!
    The latest wallets section gives the following link to the mac wallet:
    (mac) : http://bitrad.io/downloads/Bitradio-Qt-OSX-V1000.zip

    As I understand it's an older version of the wallet which has problems with transaction speed.
    Is there any reason why there is no upgrade for mac? Could admins compile the wallet for mac and post it on official bitradio.io website?



  • @Bo

    1. Can blockchain wallet receive BRO?

    2. What's "wallet address from an exchange"? I see that there's already an address in the downloaded BRO wallet after installation. Should I use this one or generate a new one and change the address on Bitrad profile from time to time?

      How to exchange BRO to other currencies? Can BRO wallet do that?

  • @brbitrad I'm not Bo, but I think I can answer some of your questions:

    1. Don´t use a wallet address from an exchange for payouts in Bitrad simply means that you should not use the bitradio address on exchanges such as Cryptopia for your payouts from bitrad.io. If you downloaded and installed BRO wallet it's ok to use the generated address. And it doesn't really matter if you use the address which you already have the first time you opened the wallet or newly generated as long as you put it on your Bitrad profile.

    2. How to exchange BRO to other currencies? Can BRO wallet do that?
      The wallet cannot exchange BRO to other currencies. Use exchanges to do that. Right now Cryptopia is probably the only choice. Here you can see the list of the exchanges: https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/bitradio/#markets

    And I don't quite understand your first question.



  • @wiewiorka
    thank you for your explanation!
    how long does it take to receive the coins after it's already payout? The payout has been done around 30 mins ago but I still haven't receive it in my BRO wallet.

    Today Cryptopia is the only option, because Novaexchange is closing and Tradesatoshi has the market closed and wallet offline.

  • @joao how can i transfer my brocoins in my paper wallet to purchase masternode



  • @patrix19

    You need import the private key to a oficial wallet. And it will be hard to do it, because i don't know a wallet what read qr codes...

    I imported one once time with another coin and a wallet what can read qr , never did it with bro wallet.

    I think the key is use importprivkey <newpiggycoinprivkey> [label] command,
    but search for a tuto first, even for another coin, should work with $BRO , because wallets are similar.

    Once you import your private key, then you can spend the coins.



  • @brbitrad you're welcome! Regarding payout time, I can only suggest checking your transaction in transaction explorer from time to time: https://chainz.cryptoid.info/bro/



  • @joao well then, I hope new exchanges will be added at some point.



  • @joao @patrix19
    I suggest create a new paper waller, transfer there a small amount ( 0.001 or listen radio ) and try recover it... if something is wrong, it's a small lose.



  • Can i had 2 computers listen music at same time and making double BRO? Thxs and Merry Christmas!!
