Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash are two entirely separate cryptocurrencies and they operate on two entirely separate blockchains. This means that Bitcoin (BTC) sent to an address on the Bitcoin blockchain will never appear nor be present on the Bitcoin Cash blockchain. In this instance you seem to have sent a Bitcoin Cash (BCC) transaction to an address in your Bitcoin (BTC) wallet. Note that in the Bitcoin.com wallet you can set up both a Bitcoin (BTC) sub-wallet and a Bitcoin Cash (BCC) sub-wallet.

You can do the following to retrieve your BCC from your BTC wallet:

- Go to Home > New wallet (press the '+' icon) > New personal wallet
- Select the Bitcoin Cash option, as you want to recover your BCC. (Grey is off and sets up a BTC wallet, green is on and sets up a BCC wallet)
- Enter a name for the wallet (I would suggest BCC recovery) > Show advanced options > Wallet key
- Copy from wallet... > Select Wallet To > [Your Bitcoin [BTC] Wallet]
- Create new wallet

This will create a Bitcoin Cash (BCC) wallet from your Bitcoin (BTC) wallet seed.

- Once it has been created, go to Settings > [BCC recovery wallet] > More Options > Wallet Addresses > Tap 'Unused Addresses' at least 20 times / until you get an "Empty addresses limit reached" message
- Tap 'Scan addresses for funds'

Your BCC will now appear in your BCC recovery wallet.

Again, you can manage both Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCC) in your Bitcoin.com wallet, but you must not send BTC to a BCC address and vice-versa. You should send BTC only to addresses in your Bitcoin.com BTC sub-wallet, and you should send BCC only to addresses in your Bitcoin.com BCC sub-wallet.

TLDR: Your BTC are lost. No recovery possible.

The method in the FAQ "I accidentally sent BTC to my BCH wallet" is not totally correct.

All, I accidentally sent BTC from Coinbase to my bitcoin.com BCH wallet. The method in the FAQ page is did not work for me, I always got the "Error" message that the account is used by another account. When I followed the method exactly anyways, when I scanned for funds I got an error message that "transaction history could not be updated."

I found that pressing the "import wallet" button worked for me instead of selecting the "create new personal wallet." Here is how I deviated from the FAQ page:

1. In my case I sent BTC to my BCH wallet. So go to the home page and select the "+" by the BCH wallet.
2. This is where it is incorrect in the FAQ page. Select "import wallet" instead of "create personal wallet"
3. Create a name
4. Put the 12 word recovery phrase from your BCH wallet
5. Coin: select BTC (it is default to BCH since you asked to open a new BCH wallet)
6. Select nothing else, after that just press "import"
7. Go to your home page, you will see a new BTC wallet
8. Go to settings, and select the BTC wallet that was just created, then follow procedure on FAQ page, summarized below.
9. Go to "More Options", then "Wallet Addresses"
10. Press the "+" by the unused address about 20 times, or until you see the address that you sent the BTC to.
11. Press "Scan for funds"
12. You should then see your BTC in you home page.

BTC and BCH use the same public keys (address), so they are interchangeable. and that is good for now. So we are setting up a BTC sub-wallet within the BCH wallet, and the 12 word phrase is serving as the private key in the bitcoin.com wallet. Once you set up the BTC sub-wallet within your BCH wallet, you are able to access the addresses in the BCH wallet which are needed to get your funds in the blockchain. The address you own has the key to unlock and access it from the blockchain put it in our wallet and let you spend it. If you have questions just contact me.

Same issue here gents. Sent BCH from gdax to my BCT wallet on Ledger. Been trying to recover using the https://bch.btc.com/docs/help/bch_segwit_recovery

No luck.

Question: is it possible to use this method to capture my BCH to Ledger nano?

Thanks all!!
