• Sent BCH to BTC wallet address or vice versa

If you mistakenly sent BCH (Bitcoin Cash) to a BTC (Bitcoin) Wallet address, please check the article below.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin (BTC) are both irreversible payment systems. So, unfortunately, there is no way to reverse a sent transaction or for you to recover the BCH from your end.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) can usually be recovered from a Bitcoin (BTC) address, but this can only be done from the "Receivers" end.

If you have sent BCH to a BTC address, you will need to ask the receiving party to recover the BCH funds. If they do not know how to recover BCH from their BTC address, they will need to contact their wallet provider's support team.


If you have sent the BCH to your own BTC wallet without using the Bitcoin Swap Feature, please contact our support team to assist you (support@bitcoin.com).


  • Sent Funds are not showing.

If you have sent Bitcoin (BTC) or Bitcoin Cash (BCH) to someone but they say the bitcoins never arrived, please check the receiving address on our block explorer (Please check the link on how to use the Block Explorer - *LINK)


You can check all BCH and BTC transactions on the blockchain here: https://explorer.bitcoin.com.

You can send the block explorer URL link as "proof-of-payment" to the recipient.

If the recipient states that they did not receive the bitcoins, please ask them to confirm the receiving address.

If you have sent to the correct address, but the recipient cannot see the bitcoins in their wallet, you may have mistakenly sent BCH to a BTC address or vice-versa.
