I use Coinbase. Went to to purchase XRP so created a toast wallet. I then sent the btc to xrp wallet via Coinbase. The transaction showed complete a few hours later but never showed up in my xrp toast wallet. I checked the address sent to, for some reason is different than my current xrp wallet address and therefore the wallet never got activated. I checked the block for the address it got sent to and it seems that transactions is long gone in the past with activity sold two days after I sent to my xrp wallet. Upon research, I found somewhere that I should have sent the btc to the wallet first (which i thought it was) and then to xrp, instead it goes to a coinbase hot wallet?? And to contact Coinbase to get the transaction back. This doesn't seem to be the case after looking at the address it sent to, 1FLzbNekYywP7DeYwYjTKwktrHuzmpoCMj
Why would this happen? How would I get this random address when I know I specifically copied it from my ready to activate XRP wallet? Is this a lost cause? Now afraid to invest in Ripple, seems shady.
