I transfered tokens with Ethereum chain to the token address and I can't get it back. It will be possible to recover them when ERC223 is implemented? Thank you

  • What do you mean by "when ERC223 is implemented"? Oct 12 at 8:05
  • ERC223 is a new version that avoid this problem so I wonder if is implemented in a near future I would be able to recover them. Oct 12 at 9:20
  • I know what ERC-223 is. The question is what do you mean by "implementing it"? You mean the entire industry to switch to using ERC-223? Only a portion (say, 10%)? Only the centralized exchanges (e.g. Binance)? Or do you mean that the token contract that you used to be ported to ERC-223? If this is what you mean, the answer is "not possible", unless the token contract is upgradeable. Oct 12 at 9:50

I am afraid not.

I assume you sent tokens to the "Contract address?"

It will never be possible to take/recover tokens from an address if you don't have a private key to the said address. That is how blockchain architecture works at its core.

That said, maybe the contract you sent your tokens to was supposed to exchange your tokens for some other ones?? If that is the case, you should be safe and your "new" tokens are at your address, you might just not see them (a problem with wallet setting for Metamask, TrustWallet etc)


But as far as I can see you sent 1794 nICE tokens to the contract address.

  • What do you mean with my tokens change for other one's. I contact them and they told me is nothing they can do. Oct 12 at 9:18
  • Sometimes you are required to send ETH or tokens to a contract address and in turn, you get other tokens (smart contract exchanges them for you). So I thought that might be the case here too. But I guess not. Where did you send your tokens, at what address?

  • Ah, so you sent your tokens there to stake them?

  • Yes. I already staked and I send them to the token address. My tokens are there but they told me is no way to get it back which is unbelievable. Oct 12 at 10:47
