Help! I sent BCH to a BTC address

Tue May 01, 2018 8:22 pm

Hey everyone!

I'm sure the title explains it all but I don't know what to do/who to ask.

I sent BCH to a BTC address by mistake and obviously, it won't go through properly (from what I was told) and I want to get my money back in my wallet of course...

I don't know what to do. I'm still new to this whole thing. Thanks!

Hi seisei,

If you are using a Bitcoin.com wallet and have your 12 word recovery phrase you should be able to recover your funds without problems.

Please follow the instructions below to retrieve the BCH from your BTC wallet:

Please follow these instructions:

1
Press "Home" in the bottom left

2
Press + sign on the right of "Bitcoin Cash (BCH) wallets"

3
Create personal wallet. Enter a name for the wallet, for example "BCH recovery wallet"

4
Make sure that the "coin" is set to (BCH)

5
Show advanced options

6
Wallet key - Tap on “Random” and change to “Specify Recovery Phrase”

7
Type your BTC wallet's recovery phrase (you can get it from Settings > [Name of your BTC wallet] > Backup)

8
Make sure "Single address wallet” are turned OFF. You don't need to change the derivation path.

9
Create wallet. If you get an error “Error creating wallet: Key already associated with an existing wallet”, continue to step 10 and select your existing BCH wallets.

10
Go to Settings > [BCH recovery wallet] > More Options > Wallet Addresses

11
Tap 'Unused Addresses' at least 20 times / until you get an "Empty addresses limit reached" message

12
Tap 'Scan addresses for funds'

13
Your BCH will now appear in your BCH recovery wallet.

If the steps fail to work or you need any assistance at all, please e-mail wallet@bitcoin.com, our support team will be happy to help you.
