I accidentally had my Forex broker send BCH instead of BTC to my CashApp (I chose the wrong option for withdrawal) It ended up at a Bitcoin address which only lists the transaction meaninig on the "explorer" site). I don't have a wallet with Bitcoin.com . How can I get my funds to my cashapp? I have been chasing Cashapp for 5 days now and they are not responding to my request properly. Is there a way? Or do I have to wait on cashapp to recover the funds and put it my cash app wallet? $1600 is a lot of money to lose! Please someone help me.
The only one that can help you is CashApp, since you locked your funds to a key they control. AFAIK, CashApp uses segwit addresses, and BCH does not support segwit, so recovery would require a bunch of additional (likely manual) intervention. You'll have to negotiate with them.
If your address is a SegWit
3... address as Murch said, then you would have to
- Make a transaction from the wallet (for this, you need to send a little amount of BTC sent to the address)
- Find a miner that you can trust (Reddit? r/bitcoincash) and give them the TXID
- They'll DEDUCT a percentage fee (don't pay them! that would sound like a scam) before sending you your coins (I have seen a miner deducting only 10%)
The hardest part is finding a miner that you can trust.
