I don't really understand how the Mastercoin mechanics work, do I need a special client when operating with Mastercoins? And how should I proceed with the initial investment?

If I were to recieve MCSs would I use my BTC wallet and if so how do I know the amount of MSCs in my address?

  • It is a good question. The presentation, video, etc on mastercoin.org is incomprehensible. The questions here on Stackexchange consist of a bunch of trolls voting every question down. Mastercoin says it is bitcoin on steroids, but there is no documentation and no exchange. It seems rather to me like bitcoin in a wheelchair. An answer to this question by a non-troll would be welcome.

To send or receive MSC, you only need a Bitcoin wallet when you have control over the private keys. so web wallets don't count

    How so? In many web wallets you do have access to private keys. Commented Dec 1, 2013 at 19:34
