Hello dear readers,

I think I messed up big time, but I hope that someone can still help me.

I've been using www.poloniex.com for trading. I made a few dollars and wanted to withdraw these. Someone pointed out that I needed a wallet for this, so I downloaded and setup Electrum wallet 2.9.3. Because I wanted the dollars I converted the BTC to USDT, and withdrew USDT ~1900 to my electrum address. Is it actually possible to withdraw USDT to Electrum? Not sure why I thought of this but at the time it made sense. I got my address from the tab "Receive" and I just copied that address, but I didn't fill in the requested amount. (big mistake?)

Everything on Poloniex said it was fine, even got a confirmation e-mail from them. Now the amount I withdrew is no where near the amount I received. See screenshot below: https://imgur.com/a/Gudd6

.0000273 btc.

Questions:
Where is the remaining of the dollars? Is there anything I can do to get that part back?

All help is appreciated..

Yes, you can easily get your USDT back.

1. Get your address private key. If you don't know how to do that:
  • a. Go to the Addresses tab (If it's not showing up: View -> Show Addresses).
  • b. Right click the address you sent the USDT tokens to and select Private Key.
2. Go to OmniWallet.org
3. Click the "Create wallet" button and follow the steps.
4. When logged in, go to My Wallet -> My Addresses -> Add Address -> Import Address with Private key.
5. Paste there your private key from step 1.
6. Now you should be able to see the USDT tokens and spend them.
