Let me break this down in some clearer english;

You bought 0.005 BTC from a site such as coinbase. -- Right?

You then "won" 0.5BTC from "bitcoin.org" and you have to pay a fee to claim your prize -- Right?

You then send the 0.005 BTC to the adress specified by the user who told you you had won 0.5BTC, as a fee to claim the 0.5BTC -- Correct?

This sounds to me like you got phished/scammed. https://bitcoin.org/ doesn't give away bitcoin. If you have already sent the bitcoin (0.005BTC) to an adress you don't own, it is presumably lost. Chances of recovering it are almost nihil.

Also, bitcoin.org in itself isn't a wallet. I can't really wrap my head around how you got on such a site in the first place. Mind PMing me the exact domain so i can take a look?

I'm 80% sure that this is another case of "Bitcoin Generator Scams" that usually appears on faucets and malicious sites.

It comes with an interface that looks like sophisticated command line and showing the user that he generated the amount of bitcoins that he has chosen, others are just straightforward "You win 0.5/1BTC from site.com" message.
Then, it will ask the user a to send a small amount (0.005BTC) as a processing fee before it can be sent to him.

@meysam2018 Where did you get this message that "You've won 0.5BTC from bitcoin.org?"

FYI, Bitcoin.org is crowdfunded and it never did any giveaway contests or whatsoever,
and Bitcoin is decentralized, there's no central authority that governs or manages the transactions.

and (lol) here's the most accurate translation:

Hi users of Bitcointalk
I bought 0.005bitcoins from a site that sells Bitcoins because
I've won 0.5bitcoins from bitcoin.org and I must pay a fee as a transaction fee in order them to give me the price
So the bitcoins were sent, and it was a big mistake...
I've given the bitcoin address that was provided by bitcoins.org
please help me
How can I contact bitcoin.org's customer support?
Thanks

The transaction link you provided really is pretty useless w/out more information.

This is what walletexplorer.com returns, https://www.walletexplorer.com/wallet/378d7e436d0d228d

It seems that some of your coins have ended up here? https://www.walletexplorer.com/wallet/0003f70860fa7922 Which looks like some kind of exchange.

Generally speaking an adress belongs to you/your wallet when you have the corresponding private keys for it.
What wallet are you using? Most non-web wallets will show you whether or not an adress belongs to you (Bitcoin core, electrum) with some simple commands.

I'm 80% sure that this is another case of "Bitcoin Generator Scams" that usually appears on faucets and malicious sites.

Yep, i'm pretty sure he got scammed one way or another.

Scammers love taking advantage of naive people's greed. Not only in crypto, it still happens in real life too, like: "pay me $50 and to get $5000". People still fall for that.

@meysam2018: I highly doubt bitcoin.org has anything to do with this. Did you use a phishing site with a similar name?

... i must paid fee of transaction for give cash rize...
Right... so they can afford to give away a USD$3000+ cash prize... but can't afford a US$30 transaction fee... seems legit! Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Aside from the fact that the transaction fee shouldn't be more than about 0.0001 BTC, the whole concept is just ridiculous... it is 100% a total scam.

@OP, your BTC is gone, just forget about it. Undecided
