As a newbie a friend who owed me some money suggested I get Coinbase and let him pay me in bitcoin. I got the address but didn’t realize I got the address to my BCC wallet instead of bitcoin wallet. It is quite a lot of money and I have no idea what to do. Am i just out of luck? Thanks a lot for any help.
Did he actually send you the bitcoins to the BCC address? If yes, and the transaction has been sent to the blockchain, then you are indeed out of luck and can't recover that. Sorry!
