Hello,


i just created a BTC Single wallet at bitaddress.org 10.11.2017 and transfered BCC to the wallet by accident.

i have both address and Private key. (BTC) the strange this is, i created the BTC single wallet 10.11.2017 but at block explorer i can see a transaction from 29.10.2017

AT BCC Explorer i can see the right amount of BCC.

is there any chance i can get the BCC out of the Single Wallet again?

my guess is, the money is lost because this BCC address is not existing and no one has the private to. If someone has the BCC private key to this addess.. grats

If you have the private keys for the adress, simply switch chains and your BCC should be there.

Depending on which wallet you use, it shouldn't be too hard to do.

Google a bitcoin cash wallet and import your private keys into it, it should list your BCH there. ( If your transaction actually got confirmed to said adress and if you indeed have the private keys of the adress.)

This, https://electroncash.org/ is the electrum forked wallet for BCH, use at own risk.

There is nothing which distinguishes a BCC address from a BTC address; they are both the same format and refer the the same keys, thus a BCC address is a BTC address and vice versa. This means that if someone sends BTC to an address that you created with a BCC wallet, the person who owns that BCC wallet would receive BTC. It won't appear in his BCC wallet, but if he has the same private keys on a BTC wallet, he would receive the coins there and be able to spend it.

unfortunately, it says: no inputs found. when i try to  sweep the bitcoin address in Electron cash.

that means i transfered the BCC to a BCC address that is similar to my BTC address and i have the private key to the BTC but not the BCC address

is that possible similar BTC and BCC addresses with different Privatekeys?

hard mistake done here. if this is the case this must be happening a lot and so much bcc/btc is lost in this process

thx for helping me understand.


edit:
 
When i try to import the Privat key on a bitcoin / cash wallet website, it gives me a different public key. could that be a bug ?
