As of what happens if someone send BTC from a BTC wallet to BCC wallet address, the transactions go through.
But you can only see that transaction in the Bitcoin Blockchain rather than Bitcoin cash blockchain.
I will explain with an example.
Say there is an address named "abc" in BTC and another address named "def" in BCC.
abc has 1 BTC (Bitcoin Network)
You'll have to negotiate with your service provider whether they can help you.
Whoever holds the private keys for your Bitcoin wallet should be theoretically able to generate a transaction that sends the BCH from the Bitcoin address to wherever you wanted them to go.
In practice this may be difficult or infeasible: To keep large quantities of Bitcoin ...
There is nothing which distinguishes a BCC address from a BTC address; they are both the same format and refer the the same keys, thus a BCC address is a BTC address and vice versa. This means that if someone sends BTC to an address that you created with a BCC wallet, the person who owns that BCC wallet would receive BTC. It won't appear in his BCC wallet, ...
As long as both chains adhere to the same address format, which I believe they do for now, there is no such thing as a BTC or a BCC address -- both are valid on both chains. What enables you to split your coins is the replay protection BCC implemented. It makes a BCC transaction invalid under BTC rules and vice versa.
BTW, Ethereum faced similar problems ...
In my case I sent the Bitcoin Cash to an address created by a Mobile Bitcoin (!) wallet from btc.com.
The support from btc.com told me the solution:
B) You have sent BCC to your BTC wallet:
1. Use your BTC recovery PDF at https://bcc-recovery.btc.com/ (click on 'forgot password' to use your backup PDF)
2. Recover the coins to an address from your BCC ...
Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash use the same address format. This means that if you take the key from your Bitcoin Core client, and import it to your Bitcoin Cash client, the Bitcoin Cash client will be able to spend that money.
However, if someone else operates the Bitcoin Core client, you need to convince them to send you the money.
You will need to contact HitBTC and ask them to correct it. In theory they have the private keys and can recover these coins in a way similar to splitting Bcash and Bitcoin in the first place, but prudent security practices may make this difficult for them to do.
You might also want to contact the creators of BCash and point out to them how this decision to ...
The process would be roughly the same as getting your BCH created at the fork. Here's an answer I wrote on that, but it's for a different wallet.
Let's review what happened:
You sent BTC to shapeshift from a Trezor wallet.
You wanted to trade for BCH.
Shapeshift asks for the receiving address.
You provided a BTC address instead of a BCH address.
You are likely importing it as a legacy address, since Bitcoin Cash does not support segwit scripts.
In this scenario, you cannot actually recover the coins yourself. Since segwit isn't activated on the Bitcoin Cash chain, the coins are essentially anyone-can-spend - if you try and build a transaction yourself to move them, other parties on the network will ...
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, ...
In principle, Luno can claim these coins, but you cannot.
There is no distinction between BTC and BCH addresses. They each use addresses generated from private keys in exactly the same way. Money sent to an address, on either chain, can be spent by whoever holds the corresponding private key, and by nobody else.
So Luno created an address (call it 123abc)...
Just did the same blunder. Spent the better part of the day working around it.
In my case I sent bitcoin cash (BTH) from Coinbase to a mycelium wallet.
Here is how I recovered the funds.
First installed on my phone a wallet that supports BCH (mycelium is working on that, but even though I installed the mycelium bitcoin cash module app, no new app ...
Many exchanges have similar policies, either officially (such as Bittrex) or unofficially.
The reason for this usually comes down to time and security. Any exchange worth their salt will have security set up in a manner to prevent human access to private keys, and prevent unauthorized tx signing even through an automated system.
While cross chain recovery ...
If you send some criptocurrency to an address that is of another criptocurrency that is a valid address in the first one too you have lost your money if you don't own that address in the criptocurrency you made the transaction from.
The only way I can think you could recover the money sent is to make another transaction to an address you own while the wrong ...
The response it pretty clear , you need to find a way to extract the private key of the neo wallet and import it into some other BTC wallet which allows you to do that.
What wallet are you using for NEO?
I cannot comment if this will work though as i have no idea how the Private,Public keys are generated for NEO.
Basically they don't have enough staff with security clearance to handle manual cross-chain recoveries. So only substantial amount will be considered.
It is Kraken's policy not to engage in efforts of recovery where BCH
is sent to an XBT address or XBT is sent to a BCH address. Our last
three blog posts have emphasized this point. Also, as you said,
Coinbase has shite customer service. But they're who you need to wait for. They'll either be able to access the bitcoins and send them back or credit your account, or they might give you the private key and let you do it. Not sure what their policy is. But you should use a different exchange anyway. Try ShapeShift, Bitstamp, or CryptoPay
If you don't possess and control the according private keys, you don't "own" Bitcoins. Maybe you have a right to access and transfer your Bitcoins and maybe legally "you own them", but not technically.
If you have sent BCH to a BTC address, then, only the according private key of that BTC address could help you sending your BCH out of the accidentally used ...
It is in principal possible to get them back, but the danger lies in the fact that as soon as you broadcast your new transaction to get them back anyone can change the receiving address, hence steal your Bitcoin Cash coins.
Bitcoin Cash interprets the outpoint which contains your coins as a P2SH. To spend from it you must provide a redeemscript that hashes ...
There is a solution. I've got my BCH today from block.io which was already empty but it had a BTC on the day of fork.
So what you have to do is:
First of all you should get from security settings of you block.io profile: "Redeem Script Hex", and two private keys. (actually you will have some more strings and values but only these three required to claim ...
I realise the question is a few months old, and no response from OP, so maybe resolved.
But to answer the question for anyone stumbling across this in future, there's a good chance the coins can be recovered for now, but it depends on the address used. If it's a "1" address, then the private key can be used by both bitcoin cash and bitcoin. It's likely a ...
If the seed phrase was generated by a BTC BIP-0039 compliant wallet and you have a BIP-0039 compliant BCH wallet then the answer is yes you should be able to get hold of your BCH funds.
It should be easy to try. Get a BCH wallet and enter your seed phrase and see if your coins appear.
Can you find the BCH on a block explorer website? What address are they currently in? Is it one that you control the BTC keys using electrum? If yes, then do the following:
You'll need to take the seed from your BTC Electrum wallet, and use it to generate a new BCH wallet using BCH software. Your BTC Electrum wallet will not show a BCH balance, since BCH is ...
If you sent BCH to your Trezor BTC address or vice versa, you can use https://trezor.io/recover-coins/ to recover your coins. The only exception is if you send BCH to a BTC 3... address (segwit), since these are not supported by Bitcoin Cash.
To convert BCH into BTC or vice versa you need to use an exchange.
This is technology but inside of this, there is no system to warn us "You input wrong currency adrress".
That is because Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash addresses are completely indistinguishable (Bitcoin Cash copied Bitcoin entirely which includes the address prefixes). There is no way for a system to warn you that you entered the wrong address because both are ...
You can try contacting Coinbase and/or Bittrex, however when you open your bitcoin cash wallet on Bittrex it clearly says, "Depositing tokens to this address other than BCH may result in your funds being lost", so there's no guarantee.
