The characters excluded in Base58 are 0OIl. oiL are allowed, making these two valid addresses. It is impossible to send to an invalid address, as Bitcoin transaction scripts actually include raw 160-bit hashes (which by definition have a one-to-one correspondence with valid addresses), not addresses. Bitcoin clients will simply refuse to do anything if an ...

None. It's impossible to send bitcoins to an invalid address. Those addresses are valid, though they might not be owned by anyone. Look at pszBase58 more carefully: 'o', 'i', and 'L' are allowed. The first few posts in that forum thread are wrong. The network doesn't know anything about Bitcoin addresses. At the network level, you never send bitcoins to an ...

What you are seeing is a "change address". When you send an amount that is less than you originally received, it sends the whole amount, and returns the difference to your wallet as "change". This change may not be spendable until the transaction is confirmed. The change address is different each time, which makes it harder for a third party to tell for ...

If your transaction from April still has no confirmation, it would be feasible to create another transaction that spends the same input to yourself. You could hope that your new transaction would be verified first, which would invalidate the other transaction and salvage your coins.

what happens if my transaction is in the fake block? It is also in the memory pool (mempool) of pending transactions at other nodes run by more honest people and will be included in a new and valid block in the normal way. Let’s suppose I am buying a Tesla car. Should I wait 6 blocks to be generated to be sure? But I have to wait 1 hour! Yes. There are ...

An attacker can forge fake block. Yes, but an invalid block would be rejected by all other participants that see it, and not relayed. Thus, such a block has little to no impact. This is great but what happens if my transaction is in the fake block? Let’s suppose i am buying a car. Should i wait 6 blocks to be generated to be sure? But I have to wait one ...

If what you are saying is true it sounds like the company you are working with is at fault. They provided you with a deposit address, then implemented a change to the site, and now having issues with deposits. It will be hard to prove, but it sounds like they misplaced your funds. Your only option is working with them to offer you a refund as there is no way ...

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 ...

I think MtGox usually gives you a transaction hash immediately. You can use it to track it, for example on the blockchain or blockexplorer websites. Even without the transaction hash, you can still use these websites to try and find it by looking for the Bitcoin address you have withdrawn to. You may wish to check your MtGox account history to see which ...

"Request Payment" is just a nifty little tool that generates a QR code that points to the address on the page, so it won't help you unless you want a QR code for the address. Check to see if the address you've sent to is in a wallet you own. If you have lost the private keys to the address, the only thing you can do is try to find them. It's nearly ...

USDT is part of the omni layer on top of Bitcoin. While the transaction will go through (since any omni transaction is a valid Bitcoin transaction), you will not be credited for the USDT as GDAX is a USD exchange. They don't support USDT, and hence won't be trying to detect omni transactions for it. You should contact GDAX support about how to recover your ...

What version are you on ? If you have earlier than 0.5.9 I recommend upgrading. The latest code also picks up pending transactions when you do a reset. Also, you might want to do a reset blockchain from before when you created the wallet to make sure you have all the transactions on the blockchain.

You do not have access to your Private keys on coinbase, as it is considered a custodial wallet, which means only they have access to it. I highly doubt they would give you these private keys as its not standard practice. You only option is to email support. I doubt they would care. Another option is to ask someone inside coinbase to help you, but you'll ...

The other guy is wrong, I have the same problem as you( http://prntscr.com/cv38x1 - the coins were confirmed in 2015 but it shows transaction status as unknown). Your issue is most likely the one described below: https://github.com/keepkey/multibit-hd/issues/862 - this didn't work for me, but I recommend you try it as it did help some other people. Now if ...

the coin is gone from the sending wallet yet never arrived in the receiving wallet This isn't really a thing - The transaction is confirmed, which means the coins did move. In fact, the 0.0215682 sent has already been spent (I am assuming that is the payment amount, as the other output goes to a p2pkh address, which seems likely for a change output), which ...

BITCOIN SENT CONFIRMED BUT I NEVER RECIEVED BEEN 2 DAYS In reality Bitcoins are not actually sent or received. Those are not two separate events. They both really refer to the same event. If the Blockchain shows unspent bitcoins (unspent transaction outputs) associated with an address you control, you have "received" them - regardless of what your wallet ...

If your wallet is a custodial wallet where the private keys are managed by the provider, your only recourse is to contact the provider. If your wallet is a non-custodial wallet where you manage the private-keys yourself, there are several possibilities check that your wallet is fully synchronised. How you do this depends on which wallet you use. check the ...

Without your tx id it is hard to tell what exactly happened but usually you don't need to be worried. Your described scenario sounds like a "miner fee too low" issue, the transaction gets broadcasted successfully, thus Gatecoin or any other exchange believe the funds are out of their system, but then got pushed out from the mempool because other transactions ...

The address 1UyoY... is currently funded, so the transaction did indeed go through. If Exodus wallet shows you 1UyoY.. as a receiving address but no current balance, then your wallet is not in sync with the network. If you cannot get Exodus wallet to sync with the network properly, you could try exporting the seed phrase / private key from Exodus and ...

I tried so hard to find the answer what happen with my BTC but really has no idea. One possible explanation is that the BTC were stolen by someone who, at some time in the past, helped generate your private-keys and vanity-address or had access to your wallet and extracted your private keys or who otherwise compromised the security of your computer, perhaps ...

If you know the password to your wallet.dat, you should try to retrieve the private key adresses and import them in a wallet such as Electrum, and see if that fixes your issue. This is a bit of a hassle when you have lots of changeadresses though, but it is better then not being able to access your funds. When you unlocked your wallet.dat in bitcoin core, ...

You must have downloaded electrum from a fake site which served you a backdoored version of the program. If you still have access to your browser history I suggest going through it to find out the exact URL you used to download electrum. The official site is at electrum.org and downloads are served via download.electrum.org.

check that the address of the recipient is right and valid check transaction id from Circle Pay search for the transaction by its id on http://blockchain.info if the transaction is confirmed, it's included in the blockchain, otherwise it's still stuck in miners' memorypool and require higer fees

as Murch says, you could search a transaction on a blockchain explorer (eg. blockexplorer.com, blockchain.info, ...). Searching a specific transaction could be according of "transaction hash", "sender address" or "receiver address" of that transaction. It's trivial that if you search by transaction hash, with a high probability a unique result will be show ...

Just check the address of the recipient on a blockchain explorer (e.g. https://blockexplorer.com/). If the address shows your payment as confirmed, it must have arrived. It may show, but still be marked as unconfirmed which would explain why the recipient states that they haven't received it yet.

I am pretty sure that there is no way to identify who or where you sent the bitcoins. Bitcoin is designed so that anybody can view your transaction but nobody should be able to take away private information (like the name of the company) from the publicly accessible address.

If the transaction has confirmed, then there is nothing that you need to do. Your Trezor device does not actually receive the transaction nor does it need to. All that matters is that the wallet software that you are using knows about the transaction, and if the transaction has confirmed, it is trivial for it to find out about the transaction. Check the ...

Even though the address format is different (the prefix part) the transaction is valid so there will be a transaction on Dogecoin blockchain to the address. I found a reddit thread where they suggest to save your private key in the Bitcoin client and import it to your Dogecoin client, although it is not certain this will work, I think this is your best ...

I've just checked on three different blockexplorers, and none of them knew about this transaction. Your sender may have tried to pay you, but they definitely didn't succeed, so it's up to them to remedy that. You know that a transaction is legit when it was confirmed in a block and the money has actually been transferred to you. Before the transaction is ...
