    Are you asking how to tell if an address is a segwit address? Feb 26, 2021 at 18:16

I'm answering this question under the assumption that you are asking how to tell whether an address is a segwit address.

Judging from some Reddit threads I've found, Bittrex does not support withdrawing to native segwit addresses. Native segwit addresses start with the prefix bc1…. If the deposit address you got from Binance starts either with 1… or with 3… and Bittrex accepts it in their withdrawal request form, you should be fine. If it does start with bc1… look whether there is some option on Binance to switch the address format for the deposit address.

  • Thank u for responding. My btc adress in binance it’s starting by 1Pn. it’s good ? And an other thing I tried before with the btc adress in binance (ERC20) and it stayed pending for hours and when I looked in the blockchain I didn’t find the the same amount that I sent. So I was little scared to lost it, then I canceled the transaction. Feb 27, 2021 at 19:12
  • An address starting with 1Pn… would be a non-segwit address and should work for a withdrawal from Bittrex. Do not use the ERC20 address, ERC20 is a standard for tokens on Ethereum.
