i think it depends on how big the amount is. If it is very big, i will be tempted to keep it myself haha
Even if so, I'll just send it automatically back to the original address.

do NOT do this.
i know you are trying to be honest and pay back what doesn't belong to you but as others said the address may not even belong to the sender so you both will lose the coins!

next time you withdraw from an exchange or a gambling site or your coinbase wallet if you have any of these, check the sending addresses and you can understand why we say do Not do it. the sending address does not belong to the sender.

Whether it doesn't belong to him or not but the bitcoin came from that address, it doesn't matter to me.

What if I'm in that situation which is impossible that I had sent it to the wrong address that owns by other people.

Possible that they'll do good thing to me too.

I believe in a saying "Honestly is the best policy."
We should always tell the truth, even when it seems as if it would be useful to tell a lie. Those sayings or proverbs could make the world a better place than you know. If that would happen to me honestly I will send it back to the sender address but I have to wait 24 hours for any confirmations and verifications about payments from campaigns but if the ammount is not matched with the campaign payment or any activities I participated that is the time to send it back to the sender address. Even though I need money because I am a less fortunate and unemployed I will still return the ammount. But if somebody accidentally sent 1 satoshi to my BTC address I would rather say thank you for sending that ammount because fees are higher than the said ammount. What I mean is that as long as the BTC sent to my addresses can handle the fees then it is possible for me to send it back. Grin How about you guys?


If it is a very huge amount and I have the chance to return it, of course I will return it. It's not that easy to earn bitcoin and so is any money. I will really feel guilty for keeping it myself. I believe in karma. It's a negative response so probably a negative situation will also happen to you. By being honest, it will really make you feel good, so good vibes will come into you so you will be lucky then.Smiley

If only returning BTC "to the sender address" meant you weren't accidentally sending it to someone else's wallet, and/or rendering it totally unrecoverable by the rightful owner...

Accidentally sending btc is quite hard to imagine, it may only occur to person that knows you and your btc address so you got no choice but to return it but if somebody really does accidentally send btc to my wallet, then i wont return it haha Cheesy

Well no one will answer this question honestly in my opinion. The best option is always to return back, but it all depends on the amount a person has received by accident and the scenario that person is in. If its 1000 btc, the person will be tempted to disappear cuz that will be a life changing amount for him, especially if he is in bad times. So there are multiple things involved here leading to a decision. It's not a simple yes or no answer imo. 
I read a line in an article long ago but it is still carved in my mind. It said,
"Friendship and Money: Oil and Water".
That means, money is no one's friend. Honestly speaking, I would return all the amount if I came to know somebody has sent it by mistake even if it was 10 times greater than the amount you mentioned.

These are not common occurrences and honesty demands that if anything like that happens to any of us we should return it to the sender but the reality is something different. It's easy to say and show how honest you are but it's quite difficult to practice honesty. I don't doubt anybody's honesty but it's not always easy for most of the people to remain honest especially when there's none to verify it.

I will feel guilty forever if I do not return money that is not my right. I will return the money sent to me by mistake even if the sender does not ask for it.

If I honestly answer this question, I would leave the bitcoins in my home and consider this a good gift from the universe for my good deeds. And the sender next time would carefully look at the address of the purse.

No because the sender is not really the owner of those bitcoin. So if is guaranteed that the sender will direct you to the right owner then I will definitely send it back to its owner and not the sender. Because if I send it to the sender it means that the real owner may not recover it forever.

And the other thing that for wrong transaction the sender is responsible. The owner should recover all his bitcoin from the sender.

I have never experienced any bit of receiving bitcoins from another wallet. Because it does not really happen because every bitcoins address has a unique distinction even when we've accidentally replaced a word that the processor will not accept and say Invalid Bitcoin Address. But if this happens I do not know what to do I need money and I first look at the situation before I take action

Accidentally, bitcoin will be dispatched almost impossible, and I would not return it back. Maybe someone decided to make a gift and I will accept it as a gift.
