Hi,

Does anyone have experience or knowledge of recovering Bitcoin mistakenly sent to a Bitcoin Cash wallet? I have both private keys. Support from Mycellium (Bitcoin Wallet) isn't helpful at the moment.

Thanks in advance.

1. Download Electrum.
2. Create a new wallet by using the private key that holds the public address you just sent to.
3. Done.

Since you have both private keys (or more specifically the one to the Bitcoin Cash wallet), you can easily recover your funds. Bitcoin Cash addresses are valid Bitcoin addresses and are accessible with the same key, so all you have to do is import the bcash private key into a Bitcoin wallet. It doesn't really matter which one you use as long as it's trustworthy and lets you import keys, but I recommend Electrum.

Both of them run on the same technology.
You will be able to restore it.
