I accidentally sent ETH to the wrong address and need to cancel the transaction before it hits the blockchain. I am not sure how to do this. Can I have someone please help provide steps as it is being sent from binance. I am uncertain as to what steps to atually perform to get my ETH back.

I went to MyEtherWallet.com and went to Send Offlilne

What should I set the values to:

The from address: should this be the original address that came from Binance? If so how do I find out what was used? The To address: I assume this is the incorrect address where this was sent Value/amount to send: The actual amount of ETH sent in the previous transaction Gas Limit: What value should i put Gas Price: waht value Nonce: what Nonce should I leave it at?

What option do I choose on how i would like to access my wallet? I am coming from none of the options

What do i need to put in the publish transaction space for the signed transaction?

  • Unfortunately, not much control over what the exchange does after you initiate the transfer. Hopefully, you were able to cancel using the Binance website. In general Ethereum transactions can only be cancelled by resending a NEW transaction with a higher gas value. – nyusternie Jan 10 '18 at 8:26
