I am a newbie at this whole bitcoin deal and I have been burned on my first transaction.  I tried to move funds from my Bitcoin wallet to my Electrum wallet, but I never received the funds.  My bitcoin wallet has been deducted the funds but my Electrum wallet has not received the funds.  This whole ordeal has become very aggravating lol.  I have lost almost $80......

I have the "Legacy" and "New Style" address that the funds were sent to but I have not idea how to recover the funds.....

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME...............Huh or send me to the right forum/location to discuss this?Huh

@ElectrumWallet on twitter says to come here for support but I cant find much bc I have no idea what I am actually in search of, except my cash haha!!!!

Thanks for your help!!
Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

Do you have a tx ID? The address you sent the bitcoin? You need to provide some information so that someone can assist you with the correct information. Are you sure that you have sent the bitcoin to the correct address?

Using your Bitcoin Core wallet, can you post the transaction ID on here? Or you can just check blockexplorer.com to see if your transaction is there.

On your Electrum wallet, can you go to the Console and type the command:
Code:
ismine("ADDRESSYOUSENTOHERE")

Replace the address accordingly.

If it returns true, you're fine.

The transaction ID doesn't show anything on the blockexplorers. Your Bitcoin Core client did not broadcast the transaction to the peer. Try to look at the transaction information and check if its seen by any peers. Either the fees are too low or the transaction has not been propagated.

I have noticed I sent the transaction from my BCH wallet and not my BTC wallet, does that make a difference on trying to find the funds?

Do you need the legacy address or new style address?

New Style address: 1Asw9BGefMxkG4TTUhs1fsiKuyCqRmeccy

For the record, Bitcoin addresses starting with "1" are legacy addresses, which in your case is actually a good thing.

However...

I have noticed I sent the transaction from my BCH wallet and not my BTC wallet, does that make a difference on trying to find the funds?

Block Explorer said "no matching records found" Angry

Your transaction number does show up neither on BCH nor on BTC block explorers. Same goes for the address 1Asw9BGefMxkG4TTUhs1fsiKuyCqRmeccy. If you merely sent coins on the wrong Bitcoin blockchain the transaction should have appeared on at least one of the block explorers. However it seems like the address is incorrect as well.

Which wallet did you use to send your coins from? Bitcoin ABC? Can you double-check your transaction history to which address you sent the coins to?

I also can confirm that nothing shows on non of the explorers. OP is missing something for sure. Are you 100% sure that you were dealing with Bitcoin?

I downloaded the Bitcoin wallet app and the Electrum Wallet off of the Play Store on Google.......

My Electrum private key that I used was: xpub661MyMwAqRbcGQ6ZfyKW1nUpTt3g7Yem6brVwAmpMXUkvBnEEKCyJ1vHWiChSN8DMo7rfiyesYX g4tC43BvxNJkz5jwRKeNysVn3HFJCdxZ

That's not a private key..  Huh
 
It's an extended public key (xpub). See https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/a/36958 It might be better not to randomly post these online.

Can you show us where exactly you are able to find your transaction ID? maybe a link to a block explorer? Otherwise we can only guess what you could possibly do.


It sounds to me like you might have downloaded a fake version of Electrum, which took your money and is now showing imaginary transaction IDs.

This is not a private key. And if it was, your coins would have been stoled since you tried to post them here.

Anyone with your private-key can steal your coins. What you posted above is your master public key. It's usually used to get (in view-only mode) the addresses generated from an HD wallet without. You can't spend any of the coins in a wallet with it.

I'm Using https://blockchair.com which can search information from multiple coins (BTC, BCH, ETC and LTC), but there's no result information for both address and transaction ID.
I attempt to get transaction info with getrawtransaction and decoderawtransaction on Bitcoin Core, but i got this message parameter 1 must be hexadecimal string (not '1b03fb050d0524f1e8877877a369e9880e9c1127a8e3a2266b7bdb9d99869e9') (code -8)). Frankly i doubt OP use Bitcoin wallet.

It would be great if you can inform us the name of Bitcoin wallet that you use? If you use Bitcoin Core, Bitcoin ABC or Bitcoin Unlimited, make sure the it's synced (no Text "Synchronizing with Network..." with progress bar on bottom of the wallet) OP answered the question while i'm looking for information.

As i expected, you're not dealing with Bitcoin. https://blockchair.com/bitcoin-cash/transaction/1b03fb050d0524f1e8877877a369e9880e9c1127a8e3a82266b7bdb9d99869e9 (the explorer automatically change address format and made me confused) https://www.blocktrail.com/BCC/tx/1b03fb050d0524f1e8877877a369e9880e9c1127a8e3a82266b7bdb9d99869e9 shows your transaction already confirmed.
All you need to do now are download BCH wallet (Electron Cash is recommended) and import your Bitcoin's private key/seed (from Electrum) to Electron Cash. Do not share your private-key/seed

But, are you sure you didn't put the address in wrong order? If not, you might be scammed.

These BCH people were to be blamed. This is how they mislead people using the name of Bitcoin. @OP: I hope you did not share the private-key/seed with anyone. Clearly you messed up with BCH and BTC. BCH is Bitcoin Cash which is not Bitcoin, just keep this in mind next time.

Yeah. That's a bitcoin cash wallet.

Did you buy your "bitcoins" (Bitcoin Cash) there aswell?

I'm not sure how easy it is to export/import private keys with mobile wallets. It might be more convenient to use a PC.



EDIT: AFAIK, you can't access your private key on Android Electrum.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2381046.0


Have you saved the seed for electrum on your android? If so, import the seed on the desktop version of Electrum.

NOT ElectronCash, as they might generate seeds differently etc. I have no clue how they work.

From there you can export the private key into a BCH compatible wallet (ElectronCash), and you should be able to access your funds.
