Deposit recovery policy:



Bittrex's cross chain recovery policy is that we will only attempt to recover deposits that exceed $5000 at the time of deposit, within 7 days of the deposit and will charge a 0.1 BTC for this recovery.  Recovering coins crosschain is an inherently dangerous and time consuming process. Not all deposits can be recovered and the time frame of recovery is at our discretion.

This policy DOES NOT apply to deposits with incorrect or missing memos on currencies such as CryptoNote, NXT, BitShares, Ripple, STEEM, or any others that rely on a message/memo/tag for crediting deposits.  Nor does it apply to ETH tokens sent to other addresses on the ETH network.  These will be recovered in a time frame of our discretion.

This policy DOES apply to any deposits sent to an address of another coin on another network. This includes but is not limited to:

    Sending, for example, BTC to a BCC address
    Sending an OMNI/XCP asset to ANY address other than the one assigned
    Sending ETH to an ETC address

Note:  We WILL NOT recover coins or tokens we do not support.  Nor will we recover funds that were distributed as part of an ICO.

 

Crosschain - A deposit of one coin to a different coins address is considered a crosschain deposit

Depends if bittrix owns the btc wallet address. I Would think they do if they own the same bitcoin cash address. If this was a new bitcoin cash address that was recently generated they may not own the original.
Is your btc address the same as your bcc address on bittrix? I think they must own both since the private key is the same.

to speak honestly it is completely up to them, they may not recever your funds according to the their policies but however the amount of money always matters even if there is a policy about this issue.

I'm afraid you will never be able to get those bitcoins back.If you just open their BCC wallet,you could see their policie which states if you deposit wrong currency in the BCC wallet they're not responsible and coins would be lost forever.You could have read that line for once.Moreover,how can you not know how cryptocurrencies work ? Doesn't make any sense to deposit bitcoins in an altcoin wallet.

they both have different address

but as i am aware of they hold the private key of my btc address which have been used for couple of transactions

and as far as i know if they put the private key of any address btc or bch as they share same blockchain they can get the funds very easy

thats what i think

i have emailed them but have not heard back from them

i was reading this on reddit

I remember a post by Richie in Twitter and I guess he is part of Bittrex as he often post updates and warning to users of Bittrex and according to his post Bittrex will never process such a request when BTC was erroneously sent to a BCC address even if you file a ticket it will be ignored. It was posted only a few days ago.

To make it simple for you,just imagine sending Bitcoins to an Eth address,do you think it will ever reach the destination or even accepted by the block for that matter ? It is not upto Bittrex if you broadcasted a transaction to a wrong address.
As much as I would like you to have hopes,technically I don't think it is possible.

Generally, bittrex owners are great people until now. Unless coins are sent on an address they do not own, they will provide solutions.

i think you misunderstood it


its not eth to btc or btc to xrp or any

its about btc to bcc they share same private key since BTC and BCC use the same keyspace

the trascation has 45 conformations the coins are sitting in bcc wallet but nor showing why because i need the private key to retrieve them and they have it

they own the bcc address its thier bcc address not any third party

i am pretty sure its very easy task for them if they are willing (if i am not wrong)

If i am not too late, you should be fine if you contact bittrex. Bitcoin Cash private keys are the exact same as Bitcoin private keys. If they are willing to take their private keys and send it to you (It requires a lot of effort to pull it off properly, since it is a huge security risk), you will get it back. Sit down and have a chat with their support.

You need to keep in mind that if they refuse to reimburse you, it's not their fault. But if they do, post it on reddit and it'll really help them out.

I am a little confused on this issue, mean I understand what happened but would think that there would be safeguards in place that would make it harder to do this by accident. Think wallets should look into developing safeguards that warn people based on addresses that they are sending to potential issue.

Would be interested as well to see what happened for beel as it creates a soft spot for some of these companies to snare in some extra funds that should be reconnected to the sender.

This happened to me some months ago too. Now that BTC is climbing so fast it especially hurts that they don't have a system in place to prevent things like that from happening. In my case i was using electron cash to send my BCC to bittrex and sell it. I tried that like a lot of times and wasn't working. Some days later i wanted to try again but instead opened the original electrum client (which looks exactly the same...) and send my BTC to the BCC bittrex address...

The thing that upsets me the most is why do they use different addresses for a forked chain? This would not happen on a real wallet as i would have the private keys for both chains. Also it is that difficult to program an script that credit BTC back to the bittrex BTC address for every BCC owner that has some balance (lets say 50$) on its BTC address? They could pay the transaction fee from the balance, and even take a fee for the service if they want to. A company that cares for their customers should not let this happen.

They said, as it is a manual task (retrieving the key and stuff) they won't put in risk BTC of other clients for deposits of less than 5000$. I don't really understand that.

Hi Beel,

I saw your post regarding accidentally transferring btc to bcc in bittrex. I also did the same mistake yesterday and what to verify with you whether you got your issue resolved from bittrex. and how long did they take to revert back the transaction.

Thanks,
Kalyan

The good thing about commercial cryptocurrency exchange is they're having customer support but when you already sent it to Bitcoin cash external wallet that Bittrex.com has no judicial part of it then it will be the disaster from you. Recovering some issues will not always give you 100 percent positive results but as long as customer support is looking for ways to reverse your transaction it would be better.

Actually the issue isn't new to Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash holders, it's because they have the same wallet ID configuration but the issue is pretty common since the Bitcoin Cash was split from Bitcoin. That's why the birth of Bitcoin Gold is introducing the feature that just in case other currency has no way any kind of transactions in both ways.

I think theres a misunderstanding here. Correct me if Im wrong but I think youre sending the wrong currency for the wallet. I hope that you can retrieve your lost coins. Maybe you could ask the technical team of Bittrex. However if that was stated on their policies, I think your coins would be lost forever. Just like youre in london and trying to buy a beer on a store with a dollar. Thats what happened. Theyd never accept the money coz thats not fit their service and I think thats the mistake you did. I strongly suggest that you contact your wallet technical support in order to know what you should do to retrieve your lost money. Good luck!

I did the same thing. I sent Bitcoin to Bittrex Bitcoin Cash address. it is more than 1000$. I have emailed Bittrex, no response so far.
most of the threads says it is gone. but should't there be a regulation in place for such cases.

I donít think you will recover back your bitcoin which was sent to the bitcoin cash address because once the transaction has been sent and received I donít think it is reversible. But I could be wrong though, try sending them a personal message through telegram, maybe it could help.

Did your get btc back?i hope they resolve your issue which is a simple mistake,if thats bittrex bcash wallet they will resolve it and if thats bcash local exchange thats impossible to revert.

so much trouble for this one. but i see in bittrex that if you lost a huge money like that. you can contact them and they can help you with that but there is a huge pay for that. but worth it if they get it back, right?

i have same experience of this but not a lot of money, so i do not recover it. but you, you can.
