Can someone please help me and tell me, if there is a solution to get my lost Bitcoin Cash back?
I wrote to Ledger, but they sent back a more or less useless reply:

Hello ,
If you sent your BCH on a Bitcoin Segwit address, there is nothing we can help you with, as Bitcoin Cash doesn't support Segwit, your BCH are lost so far.
If you sent your BCH on a Bitcoin Legacy address, please export your extended Bitcoin public address (xpub) and send it to us. To do it:
open the Bitcoin Segwit account that you send your BCH to.
click on "Account settings" on the top right corner, under your balance,
click on the "export" green button on the Extended Public Key line
click on "print" or "send by email"

Best regards,
Alexandre

First Alexandre wrote, my BCH are lost, but on the second line, he offers me a solution..Huh Don't understand that.
Second, there are no "Account settings" on the top right corner, and there are also no export buttons (i wrote that back to Ledger support, but they sent me the same answer again - "great" support by the way).
Third, a friend of mine told me, that my BCH are still there somewhere.. maybe it's possible to recover them with another wallet. I don't know, if this works.

Maybe, there is someone, who has the same problem or could help me solving that, if there's a workaround for my issue.
Thanks a lot for your help and feedback!

Did you send it to a segWit address?  Or did you send it to a legacy address?

Did the address start with a 1 or a 3?

There's a difference between Segwit & legacy adresses.

He is stating that in the case it WASN'T a Segwit adress, but rather a legacy adress you would be able to get it back, but this, if the information you gave us is correct, is not the case.

If your adress is starting with a 3, or bc1, and you're sure it isn't a multi-signature wallet, https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Multisignature, it is a Segwit adress, which means your bitcoin cash is LOST, since they don't support segwit.




--
If you sent it to a bitcoin legacy adress, go to https://www.ledgerwallet.com/api/demo.html and try that and see if it works, Haven't tried it myself but some people reported that it worked for them, https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/3k9meh/how_to_get_xpub_from_ledger_wallet/

Seems pretty outdated though..

( since you can't get your Xpub from your ledger itself for some reason?)

Thanks for your support. It was a BTC segwit address, where i sent my BCH to. I am just curious about your words, because some people told me, that there might be a workaround to transfer my private key to another wallet (not Ledger), which makes my BCH appear.

Theoretically... it should be possible to create a transaction to recover your BCH that has been sent to a SegWit address... refer: https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/6z56x3/attention_benevolent_bch_miners_a_bch/

There are a number of problems associated with this, one of the big ones, as the OP of that thread explains ("More Problems" section), is that by creating and broadcasting that transaction, it would be possible for someone to then take the "hash" from the broadcast transaction and create their own transaction using that hash which sends the coins where they want it to go in "double spend"...

I have no idea what the likelihood of that happening is... but given there is a chance it could happen, I'd also wager that people are scanning the people for these types of transactions Tongue

As far as I'm aware, at this point in time... it isn't possible to get those BCH from a SegWit address... but it MIGHT be possible at some point in the future.

Thanks for your reply! It seems, that this is all far to complicated for me as a "standard" user.. would appreciate an "easy" solution to get my Bitcoin Cash back..

Seems like I didn't quite make myself clear. Basically... there ISN'T a solution... easy or medium or hard... BCH sent to a BTC SegWit address is NOT able to be recovered.

If you sent BCH to a BTC Segwit address
Your BCH are stuck as Bitcoin Cash doesn't support Segwit.

However you can recover them!
