by doing a mistake i have send BCH to my BTC address into my own Wallet,the wallet is Bitgo i know they have a tool to recover the BCH when they are send to a non segwit address i have already tried the tool e the tool give error, so i think that my address was a segwit, Bitgo say that when the Address is a segwit address -> Unfortunately, when you sent your transaction, you sent it to a Bitcoin address that was using the new Segregated Witness format. As this format is not supported on Bitcoin Cash, we cannot recover these funds.

It's possible to have another solution

Best regards

Of course it's possible. Since SegWit outputs look like AnyoneCanSpend outputs, you can redeem the outputs.

I can create the redeeming transaction for you, but since transactions with ACS outputs are not relayed, you'll need to find a miner and send your transaction to them, which requires you to e-mail a mining pool owner (No one I've talked to tried this, so I don't know if they will help)

You'll need to check if your SegWit address has spent any Bitcoins. If it hasn't, send the address Bitcoins and spend the Bitcoins from that address.

Maybe you should contact this guy: https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/7g6s9l/an_update_on_bch_segwit_recoveries/

  • Thank you very much for your quick answer, i have controlled the address were i sent the Bitcoin cash and they are there unspent. I will try to contact that guy, but he write that he can help only transaction that are in his sweeping transaction. I haven't understand that: "You'll need to check if your SegWit address has spent any Bitcoins. If it hasn't, send the address Bitcoins and spend the Bitcoins from that address." – Raphael E.

  • @RaphaelE. The "Witness Program" of the P2SH script must be revealed. – MCCCS Dec 30 '17 at 15:02
  • What if you directly relay those transactions to any mining pool? Will those accept? Or would it have to be some shady miner? – Jus12 Jan 6 '18 at 9:55
  • @Jus12 "Anyone-Can-Spend outputs are currently considered non-standard, and are not relayed on the P2P network. " (Source) I'm not sure if their software would accept it, but I'm sure that Bitcoin Core will give an error while trying to broadcast it. – MCCCS Jan 6 '18 at 10:05
