Hi All

I have made a major rookie mistake 2 days ago and would would it if one of you guys can help me out

I transferred 40 ETH into ETC using JAXX WALLET

Only to find out even though it is in the same wallet but they dont support each other - Is there anyway for me to retrieve this 40ETH - This thing has been occupying my mind for the past 2 days - Any direction from here would be wonderful I am willing to give a ether away for your time :)

  • And by the way, if you wish to send a tip in case you succeed using my instructions, be free to send ETH to 0x8Cd9f8f7F28dC2048d10710Ec169F4B462D314C5 but please note that I don't answer for money but for helping community. – Nicolas Massart Sep 30 '16 at 20:19

It's probably more easy than what you think.

  • First, go to an explorer to check that your etc account also exists in eth chain: https://etherscan.io/address/0xc2a9d704e163806df8725c3c1829b7392623b21f
  • Then go to your Jaxx wallet app menu. Go to tools and then diplay private keys. Select your etc wallet and copy the private key.
  • finally go back to jaxx app menu, touch transfer paper wallet, past the private key and follow instructions. Don't forget to check that your ETH wallet is the target.
  • if you can't or don't want to import your key with jaxx, you can use https://www.myetherwallet.com/#send-transaction . Past your private key, unlock the wallet, select the amount and target account and send your eth to your regular account.

Et voila, you should only have lost some transaction fees.

The key is that an Ethereum key is able to work on etc and eth as they use the same protocol. This is sometimes confusing but in this case it's a nice feature😉
