    @pebwindkraft there is a difference: recovering BTC sent to BCC address is trivial. Recovering BCC sent to segwit (P2SH) address is almost impossible :) – amaclin Oct 23 '17 at 6:30

    @amaclin SegWit outputs are anyonecanspend to non-SegWit nodes (which includes Bitcoin Cash), so recovering should be easy – Pieter Wuille Oct 23 '17 at 7:23
  • @Pieter, there are no mining nodes with SCRIPT_VERIFY_CLEANSTACK cleared flag :) – amaclin Oct 23 '17 at 8:21
  • @PieterWuille Is there a guide for that? Is it possible without the help of the miners? – MCCCS Oct 23 '17 at 13:33

    Because of the comments above, I do not think this should be closed as a duplicate of that question, there is a lot more to this question than that one – MeshCollider Oct 31 '17 at 0:44
