    I asume I've done the right thing. Since I have no coins on my original adress.
    - If so. That'll be interesting!

    So far, I've gotten a bunch of transactions back, of 2 Decred each.
    - Does that mean, I failed to buy, or is that the number of tickets?

    Edit.

    - I get a new transaction, each mined block.

    Okay, I get it now.
    - I guess the prize for tickets, is 2 Decred. And that it's the locked ammount of coins, I can see.
    Found the ticket list. Got quite a few already. Niceness it is.

    - Thanks @rohit pawar. <3

    Didn't even take 24 hours, for a vote to count. After I started buying tickets.

    I read you need to add your privatekey in the .bat scrypt and unlock your wallet, what about security of your coins?

    This tutorial is for people who are noob with command lines so you dont have to type commands every time. If your computer is accessible by some other party then its risky . So you can just wait for GUI wallet with PoS support ,Some Developers are working on that .
