How Can I Recover Btc Sent To Bch Or Vice Versa?
How can I recover BTC sent to BCH or vice versa? Modified on: Thu, 28 Dec, 2017 at 12:48 PM Freewallet usually supports cross-chain transactions via smart exchanges. So when you post, for example, an Ethereum address in your Bitcoin wallet, we provide you with an exchange service, converting Bitcoin to Ethereum on the go. Our system has an integrated address validator. Bitcoin and Ethereum addresses are different and the system understands it. Some addresses, however, are of the same format, and no validator can make the difference. In Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash networks, addresses are the same as well. This is common for coins that forked from the main network, such as BTC-BCH, ETH-ETC, and others. You cant transfer coins from BTC to the BCH network without exchanging them, and if you are sending your BCH to some Bitcoin address without conversion, your coins will not leave the Bitcoin Cash blockchain. Good news! Your coins arent lost (if they werent sent to a Segwit address). Every BTC address has the same alias in the BCH network: thats how forks work. To access your coins you need to access that address. Here is a brief guide to start: Check the transaction in your wallet. If it was a smart exchange, it will be specifically marked in the user interface. Check the destination wallet address in both chains. Use any blockchain explorer. Find the destination address there. You will probably see that the amount youve sent is there. Now lets redeem it. You need to understand who has access to this address. The answer is simple: someone who has access to the similar address in the destination network also has access to this address. Usually, its a wallet or exchange provider. If your wallet provides you with a private/public key pair, you can access your funds yourself. If Continue reading >>

Coinbase | Bitcoin Cash Faq
Announcement: As of December 19, 2017 Coinbase will add Bitcoin Cash to our assets. Coinbase customers in qualifying countries will now be able to buy, sell,send and receive Bitcoin Cash. Update: The European markets were not sufficiently healthy to enable Coinbase customers to buy and sell Bitcoin Cash. We anticipate enabling buys and sells for European customers in early January 2018. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is a direct result of a Bitcoin fork that occurred on August 1, 2017. It is an alternative version of Bitcoin that makes use of new features and rules, and has a different development roadmap. For more information about Bitcoin Cash, please visit . Coinbase customers have automatically been credited with the appropriate amount of Bitcoin Cash for their accounts. These funds appear within a separate Bitcoin Cash wallet on your Accounts page or in the Coinbase mobile apps. You can also obtain additional Bitcoin Cash by purchasing it on Coinbase, or trading on GDAX. The amount of Bitcoin Cash you receive will be the amount of Bitcoin that was in your account at the time of the fork. The fork occurred on August 1, 2017 at 5:16:14 PST and on block #478558. Please note you will not receive Bitcoin Cash for any Bitcoin you removed from the platform before the fork, or purchased after the fork. How can I trust that Coinbase knows the exact amount of Bitcoin Cash that was in my account at the time of the fork? At the time of the fork, we duplicated the current balance of all Coinbase customer accounts. Customers can download a copy of their transaction history to see a running log of their balance for each Bitcoin wallet. If I had a pending BTC purchase at the time of the fork, will I still receive BCH for that purchase? No. To be credited withBCH, the corresponding bitcoin mu Continue reading >>
Help! Sent Bch To A Btc Address... - Btc
I withdrew from hitbtc.com . I sent the BCH to redacted which is my BTC wallet address instead of my BCH wallet address. I have the 12 words for recovery using the bitcoin.com wallet. How can I go about recovering from this mistake? The private keys are the same for both Bitcoin core and Bitcoin (Cash). You can just import the key for your Bitcoin Core address into your Bitcoin (Cash) wallet and you'll be fine. It's very easy - add a BCH walet, input your seed as private key. I did the same thing, I stupidly sent BCH to a BTC wallet from jaxx to bitcoin.com. I figured out how to import the btc key to create a bch wallet, but its been about 12 hours? An no funds have shown up yet? Any idea how long it takes? Like because I sent bch to btc, is it effected by the btc memepool? Could it take days to show up? If you sent to a BTC address then yes, you'll be affected by Mempoolzilla that is growing and growing. Sorry :( Yes, I definitely sent BCH to a BTC address. I also checked it on the blockchair site. I only did it cause Jaxx uses 0.0002 BCH as the lowest fee, about $0.35 cents. Where bitcoin.com uses 1 satoshi. Will $0.35 effect getting it confirmed? I see 6 confirmations in Jaxx... not sure if that matters as it went to btc address. Mmmh ok my mistake I understood wrong. The bch went to a bch address obviously, and it's already confirmed. Fine for you. However, now, you need to get access to this bch address ; if you have the private key of the btc address, the private key of the bch address is the same. Well, I tried doing all the steps in other posts, create a new bch wallet with the key (12 word passphrase) from the btc address that it was sent to. Change random to whatever it was, I also had a password, and it created a new BCH wallet from that key. When I look at Continue reading >>

Help, I Just Sent Bitcoin Cash To A Btc Address! Can I Get It Back?
September 20, 2017 by Evan Faggart 171 Comments 11240 Views Last week, Bitcoiners were surprised to find out about an entirely new way they could potentially throw their money away forever. As it turns out, those using the forked Bitcoin Cash (BCC) coin can actually send their coins to a Bitcoin (BTC) address, leaving their money at the mercy of whoever controls the BTC private keys. Also read: Indian Government Considers Creating Lakshmi Blockchain Currency Crossing Paths: Accidentally Sending Bitcoin Cash to a Bitcoin Address Vices Motherboard put this issue in the spotlight last week when it published a report of Reddit users discussing their mistake of sending BCC to a BTC address and trying to get their coins back. According to Motherboard, most of the people they saw discussing the problem on Reddit had sent funds to a Trezor hardware wallet, and accidentally used a BTC receive address. The publication noted that several people had made this mistake, despite multiple warning from Trezor about sending BCC to BTC addresses. However, even experienced Bitcoiners can make this mistake using any kind of wallet not just a hardware storage device. Bitsonline editor Jon Southurst witnessed this first hand when testing a BCC wallet out with an acquaintance, who wished to remain unnamed in this article. Jon sent a BCC payment to his friend, who had unknowingly given him a BTC address. Jons friend was using Bitcoin.coms mobile app, which toggles between BTC and BCC wallets. He didnt realize he was on the BTC screen at that moment, and accidentally created a receive address for BTC instead of BCC. Yes, I gave my Bitcoin (BTC) receiving address instead of Bitcoin Cash [BCC] to Jon by mistake, Jons acquaintance told Bitsonline. So, I now have to figure out how to retrieve my [B Continue reading >>
I Sent Btc To My Bch Wallet. How Do I Recover My Funds? (instructions)
Accidents happen, especially when you're new to the world of cryptocurrencies. If you find yourself without funds in your Bitcoin.com wallet, even after your recent transaction has been confirmed, it's possible that you may have accidentally sent Bitcoin (BTC) to your Bitcoin Cash (BCH) wallet. It's easy to assume that BTC and BCH are the same cryptocurrency given that they both contain "Bitcoin". However, they exist independently of one another, operating on their own blockchains. Because of this, BTC funds will only exist on the BTC blockchain (and BCH on the BCH blockchain), even if it's sent to a BCH wallet. The segregation of the two cryptocurrencies makes the recovery process of these funds straightforward.The purpose of this guide is to show you how you can recover BTC that you sent to your BCH wallet. I accidentally sent Bitcoin (BTC) to my Bitcoin Cash (BCH)wallet. How do I fix this and recover my funds? Press the "Home" icon in the bottom-left of your Bitcoin.com Wallet navigation bar. If you see your BTC Personal Wallet in your Wallets list that doesn't contain your verified funds, skip to Step 14. If you do not see a BTC Personal Wallet, tap the "+" button in the top-right of the wallets heading. If you have made a BTC Personal Wallet in the past, continue. Otherwise, skip to Step 9. Select the fourth option, "Import wallet". In the Wallet Recovery Phrase text field, enter your recovery phrase. Your recovery phrase is typically the 12-word secret you wrote down when you created your wallet. If you don't know your recovery phrase, you can get it from the Backup section of your BCH wallet under Settings (accessed through the bottom-right of the navigation). Press the Import button and skip to set 14. Select the first option, "New personal wallet". Give the wa Continue reading >>
I've Sent Bch To Btc Address | 99 Bitcoins
Hi, I made the same mistake, Im currently trying to find a way to recover the funds, have you found any solution? **IMPORTANT UPDATE** Ive found some information which is an interesting update to this topic. First of all, btctroubadour updated his reddit post (the one posted by Steven above) to mention the following: It looks like some greyhat/vigilante, working with an unknown miner, was able to unilaterally claim some of the BCH that were stuck in BTC-segwit addresses (namely, the ones for which the public keys were revealed by the owners spending BTC from the same addresses), as explained in this post and comments: For those that are affected by this, it means you no longer control your BCH (they were stolen by the greyhat), but he seems to be offering to give them back if you agree to letting him keep 30 % for his service (or service, however you look at it). Either way, and given the alternative (100 % loss), you should certainly check if youre affected and decide how you want to proceed. As if that wasnt enough to deal with, there seems to be a ~2 week deadline, until December 5th, 2017 at 23:59:59 UTC, after which it seems hes decided hes entitled to keep your money. :( It seems to me that if you have since spent any BTC from the address that you sent the BCH to, its likely this guy now has your BCH and will refund you 70% if you contact him with required details BEFORE 5th December. If you thought you had lost the coins, I guess getting 70% back is a positive. In my own case, I havent spent any BTC since I sent the BCH so I dont think he will have my BCH. However there then comes a further update. When following some more links from the original post, I found the following comment: Have you sent Bitcoin Cash to a Bitcoin Segwit address? Worry not! has got you c Continue reading >>
Transfer Bch To Btc Wallet
On 11/15/2017 03:08 PM I transferred BCH coins from my Bitcoin Desktop Wallet to a BTC wallet on Cryptopia, I got 89 confirmations already and the status of the Bitcoin Desktop Wallet is SENT with the current balance of 0 on both wallets. I'm very worried about what happened to my funds, can I please get some help? I made sure the destination address is the right one: 16cuKeUCwY6hng16rBBLBxc9jbm8qBDt9n. I might be able to help you as i had same issue today. You can use to get your private key from the recovery phrase (this should be from destination wallet). 1. Move the Bitcoins from that address to a safe address first. 2. Make sure you do this on an offline computer, a Linux live CD is best. Once you have it you can use some exhange like Exodus which allows you to add private key and move funds around. On 11/15/2017 03:08 PM I transferred BCH coins from my Bitcoin Desktop Wallet to a BTC wallet on Cryptopia, I got 89 confirmations already and the status of the Bitcoin Desktop Wallet is SENT with the current balance of 0 on both wallets. I'm very worried about what happened to my funds, can I please get some help? I made sure the destination address is the right one: 16cuKeUCwY6hng16rBBLBxc9jbm8qBDt9n. Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash are two entirely separate cryptocurrencies and they operate on two entirely separate blockchains. This means that Bitcoin Cash (BCC / BCH) sent to an address on the Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain will never appear nor be present on the Bitcoin Cash blockchain. In this instance you seem to have sent a Bitcoin Cash (BCC) transaction to an address in your Bitcoin (BTC) wallet. Note that in the Bitcoin.com wallet you can set up both a Bitcoin (BTC) sub-wallet and a Bitcoin Cash (BCC) sub-wallet. You will have to contact the support team at Cryptopia regar Continue reading >>
Bch Sent To A Btc Address
If you have a Ledger Nano S hardware wallet you might be especially interested in our story below, mostly because it has some serious lesson. What one of our clients went through in the past 6 days was a real nightmare. It all started when he wanted to move some LTC, Dash and BitcoinCash from his Exodus desktop wallet to his Ledger Nano S hardware wallet on Thursday. It didnt work out the way he planned His Litecoin and his Dash got to his Ledger without any problem but his BitcoinCash (BCH) sum did not arrive. He looked back on the transaction process to figure out whether he had made a mistake. Previously he used the Chrome Ledger Wallet Bitcoin application only for BTC transactions, so after several times that the opening window of the application offered the choice: Bitcoin or BitcoinCash and under the buttons the remember my choice option appeared, our client decided to tick the box so next time the process would be one step shorter. As a result, when he started the application 6 days ago, he connected his Ledger Nano S to the computer and logged in, the application took him automatically to his Bitcoin wallet. But this time he wanted to send BCH to his Ledger for the first time. There is no back to the opening page option in the app, so if you are not familiar with the options, it will not be very clear what to do to go back and click on the BitcoinCash wallet button. Our client thought that if a receive address is all he needed it would work from within his BTC wallet, too, and he will not have to quit his BTC wallet and enter his BCH wallet. What he did was that he clicked on add an account and created a new account within his BTC wallet and named it BitcoinCash. He entered this account and clicked on receive to get a receive address. He checked the validity of Continue reading >>

You made me check and I did not sent to an Dash account... I sent to a sub account inside my BTC wallet... I have no idea how I screwed up so badly...

Why Do Bitcoin Cash Addresses Look Different From Bitcoin Addresses?
Why do Bitcoin Cash addresses look different from Bitcoin addresses? When Bitcoin Cash (BCH) was created, it shared the same address format as bitcoin. In an effort to alleviate any confusion for users of both digital currencies, BCH developers later proposed a new unique format for BCH addresses called CashAddr. This new address format will help users more easily distinguish between bitcoin and BCH addresses. The updated format only changes how BCH addresses are displayed, not the underlying private and public keys. Each BCH address also has a legacy address, which is its corresponding bitcoin address. Going forward, the Blockchain wallet will only display the corresponding CashAddr addresses. Users can continue to send and receive using legacy BCH addresses, but we recommend using the new format for an optimal user experience. BCH addresses in the Blockchain wallet now look like this (Note: this is just an example address. Do not send funds to this address):qp3wjpa3tjlj042z2wv7hahsldgwhwy0rq9sywjpyy. They can also have a prefix (bitcoincash:qp3wjpa3tjlj042z2wv7hahsldgwhwy0rq9sywjpyy). For more details on this update, check out our FAQ blog post . Continue reading >>

Sending Bitcoin To The Wrong Address Isnt Always The End Of The World
Sending Bitcoin to the wrong address isnt always the end of the world A cryptocurrency owner recently told MyBroadband he mistakenly sent R35,000 in Bitcoin Cash to his Luno Bitcoin wallet. The cryptocurrency proved to be unrecoverable, at least until Luno can implement a system to extract private keys for Bitcoin Cash addresses. However, sending cryptocurrency to the wrong address doesnt have to be the end of your funds. To understand why sending currency to the wrong address is either a disaster or not, you need to understand how addresses work. Addresses on a blockchain are long strings of numbers and letters, and often have checksums built in to prevent unintended transactions. Bitcoin addresses are encoded using Base58Check encoding and include a checksum which determines their validity. This means that although addresses may be of varying length, if you mistype a Bitcoin address, your transaction will probably be rejected by the blockchain and refunded. Ethereum addresses do not include a checksum, and wallet providers and exchanges are required to implement their own checks. Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin has created an open-source capital-based checksum which is compatible with all Ethereum services and greatly reduces the acceptance of mistyped transactions. There is an average of 15 check bits per address, and the probability that a mistyped address will pass a check is 0.0247% . If you send Bitcoin to an Ethereum address, or to most other blockchains, your transaction will probably get rejected, as the address will not pass the required checksum. However, the nature of Bitcoins development means it is possible to make a mistake and lose your money. It is technically possible to convert Bitcoin (BTC) into Bitcoin Cash (BCH) using a service like ShapeShift, Continue reading >>
I've Sent Bitcoin Cash To My Bitcoin Address!
I've sent Bitcoin Cash to my Bitcoin Address! Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) are two separate currencies now. However, the addresses are identical in format, so it's very easy to accidentally send BTC to your Exodus BCH address and vice versa. If you do this by mistake, your transaction will show confirmations, but your funds will never appear in your wallet. However, don't worry! Your funds are safe and can be recovered by going through a few steps. As of Exodus version 1.39.1, we now include the ability to perform cross-chain sweeps automatically without having to manually import and export private keys. This method of recovery is preferable, as it ensures the safety of your private keys and significantly simplifies the process of reclaiming your "missing" assets. It is also a security risk to export your private keys, so we have developed this new, fully automated method. Here's how to do recover your "lost" assets in three simple steps: Open the Developer Menu in Exodus.For a guide on how to do this, please see here: Determine what assets need to be recovered: If you've accidentally sent BCH to a BTC address,you want to select "Bitcoin" in the Developer menu by navigating toDeveloper > Assets > Bitcoin If you've accidentally sentBTC to a BCH address,you want to select "Bitcoin Cash" in the Developer menu by navigating toDeveloper > Assets > Bitcoin Cash To recover your BCH, click "Sweep for Bitcoin Cash" in the Developer Menu the as shown here: Recover your BTC sent to your Bitcoin Cash Wallet To recover your BTC, select "Sweep for Bitcoin" in the Developer Menu as shown here: That's all there is to it! Your funds will be in your wallet after running this process. Continue reading >>
