when splitting a ticket how much is needed in wallet above the Max amount selected?

Oh, I only hav .26 additional!

Reduce your amount by 1dcr

Thanks, I just added 5 instead of 6 and it worked

Whoever else was on that split we did Christmas Day it voted last night, very lucky! Once those funds unlock I’ll join the new session.

86 in the hopper, someone push this through pretty please

I’m getting an error

Error buying split ticket

Error while dialing dial tcp

Can you send a screenshot of the error?

Ultrapool does not support ticket splitting.

Only 2 pools support it right now. Check the pinned post.

I think somebody dropped out but I filled it anyways.

Yeah that was me 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

hey peeps... what do you think is best: 1. always stake all my DCR in one session or 2. divide my DCR into small portions and participate in multiple sessions?

Personal preference mostly if you are going the split ticket route either way. If you have sufficient funds to stake through your wallet rather than splitting, you won't incur the split ticket fee

The others have had some solid feedback, but I wanted to add some numbers about fees. Fees are specified as a "fee rate" in terms of transaction size in kilobytes. Currently everyone is using the fee "rate" of 0.001 DCR per kB. The tickets with the lowest fees are always going to be full solo tickets because there's not a lot of data going into the transaction of a full ticket purchase.Then, a full ticket purchased via a VSP is going to have a slightly larger fee because now you're including more data in the purchase transaction, which makes for a larger transaction size in kB.Then, a split ticket is going to have the largest fee because of all the individual parties' wallets involved, the VSP, etc. Much more data is included, so a bigger transaction size is to be expected.Even with all this in mind:A full solo ticket fee is around 0.0003 DCR.A full VSP ticket fee is approximately 0.00055 DCR.A 4-way split ticket fee is approximately 0.001282 DCR.All of these fee examples came from real tickets on the chain where the fee rate was approximately 0.00101 DCR/kB

And one more thing to add to my last statement to clarify - I gave real examples of network transaction fees, which are different from the fee that your VSP charges for the service.

It’s a beta, but from what I know it’s worked well for everyone so far if that’s what you are wondering.

Yep, what he said... Also, Dell, I run the VSP and ticket splitting service at https://decredvoting.com so feel free to ask any questions you may have here!

Nope. Just another community member like yourself!

In fact I don't think any of the VSP operators are contracted by Decred

However, the developer of the ticket splitting software itself is contracted for his work on the feature.

I like the idea of staking some dcr until I have enough to buy a ticket. I assume we need to agree on how we vote prior to buying the ticket?

Yes. I've been staking for quite some time now and have been involved with all the different methods, including testing ticket splitting before it was launched as a beta.

Yeah, splitting tickets really does help everyone contribute and participate in Decred's governance. Check out this article where I went over how voting works with split tickets...https://medium.com/decred/dcr-ticket-splitting-all-you-need-to-know-b8edc6b65db3

I'll have a read. I'm still taking in the project. I've seen decred on coinmarketcap.com for months, but only started looking into the project very recently.

My splits are voting faster than I can buy new ones!

Do many people use the ticket split? I assume if the value/price of decred increases the demand for ticket split will continue?

It's still a very small percentage. Not really affecting price yet.

Do you think ticket split will ever make it into the decred wallet?

We purchase about 1 split ticket a day on average on Decred Voting - sometimes more, sometimes less.

Yes, but don't ask when. :)

I think it will, in time. They're not focused on integrating the two.
