I have very old Bitcoin wallet from 2012 year. The last operation was 12/12/2017 - this was movement all sum to my another wallet.

I was very surprised today when i first time load this wallet into Bitcoin-ABC (bitcoin cash) and see this transaction inside it!!! I see exactly same transaction (moving same sum to same wallet alias on same date 12/12/2017) inside Bitcoin Cash blockchain.

Can you explain me how is it possible? As I understand Bitcoin Cash has separate blockchain from August 2017 so i should not see the last operation on December 2017.

I used this command to load my wallet into Bitcoin-ABC (bitcoin cash) bitcoin-abc-0.16.1/bin/bitcoin-qt -wallet=my_bitcoin_wallet.dat -datadir=path_to_bitcoin_cash_blockchain

  • yes, the btc-blockchain and the bch-blockchain are running independently of each other. the most probable cause is: your wallet was hacked or you did an mistake. if you send a transaction to the btc-network it is absolutely impossible that this transaction will be executed on the bch-blockchain -> accept you (or somebody else who knows your private key) send the transaction to the bch-network – anion Dec 22 '17 at 13:12
  • @anion I'm sure it was not hacked. Because hacker should move all sum to his own wallet but not into my. And another reason is hacker can do it any date but bth-transaction was done exactly 12/12/2017 – alexey2baranov Dec 22 '17 at 13:38
  • "hacker should move all sum to his own wallet" that is obviously correct, i thought the same when i have written it :D – anion Dec 22 '17 at 13:40
  • @anion I found very interesting info. It is unconfirmed as i can see. So I think this is bitcoin-qt bug or some behaviour which i can't understand when it show this transaction from original btc-blockchain. I see this info when double click on the last tran Status: 0/unconfirmed, not in memory pool Date: 12/12/17 13:13 To: Debit: Transaction fee: .... – alexey2baranov Dec 22 '17 at 13:49
  • Would you be willing to share the transaction ID? – Nate Eldredge Dec 22 '17 at 19:54

Bitcoin and BitcoinCash have the same history before August'17

  • i know. That is my question why can I see transaction which was on December'17 – alexey2baranov Dec 22 '17 at 14:25
  • You should use separate wallet.dat file for BCH network. Make a backup file, put wallet_for_bch.dat to BCH folder and run client with -zapwallettxes=2 parameter (and all other command-line arguments also!) to rescan the blockchain – amaclin Dec 22 '17 at 16:16
