Instead of transferring my BPT token to my wallet, I accidentally sent it to the contract itself.

I sent 99,546.988023218400325838 BPT to the address 0x471eb7dcf6647abaf838a5aad94940ce6932198c

The link below takes you to the etherscan contract with my BPT sitting in the address.


Would the contract creator be able to send it back to me?

The following two functions caught my attention:

// Absorb any tokens that have been sent to this contract into the pool
    function gulp(address token)
        require(_records[token].bound, "ERR_NOT_BOUND");
        _records[token].balance = IERC20(token).balanceOf(address(this));

function _pushUnderlying(address erc20, address to, uint amount)
        bool xfer = IERC20(erc20).transfer(to, amount);
        require(xfer, "ERR_ERC20_FALSE");

I'm not exactly sure what they do but in theory they could be used to assign the tokens somewhere. You can probably even call the gulp yourself for the token and it seems to move the token to the pool - although I'm not sure what that means. The _pushUnderlying is trickier as it's internal and it's being called from various places in the contract.

Anyway, not all hope is lost and you should probably ask the contract managers or someone who knows how it works.

  • I appreciate your help so much! I've very new to this and made a dumb mistake. How do i contact the contract manager? Sep 3, 2020 at 18:21
  • After quite some digging I guess it's this: balancer.finance . Sorry, don't have any exact details to give you but you can hopefully find some way to contact someone through there - maybe you can even ask in their community Sep 3, 2020 at 18:30
  • Thank you so much I appreciate it greatly! Sep 3, 2020 at 18:54
