Light asked 2 years ago

Hi. I used virwox to buy some bitcoins, so I had to copy paste my receiver address(bitcoin) , I did it but when I copy paste my adress it is different from what I copied from my wallet, I didn’t notice.
My question is, is that possible to have the bitcoin I send to the wrong adress? If yes, how is that possible.
Thanks
My best regards. Light

Hey Light, sorry to hear about your situation.
Unfortunately Bitcoin is like cash in a sense that once you give it out – it’s not yours anymore. You probably sent the Bitcoins to someone else that now received them and the only way to get them back is if you know who that address belongs to and asks for him to send them back.
That’s one of the pitfalls you need to avoid when using Bitcoin – always double check where you’re sending the money.
Again, sorry to hear about this.

If this is a faucet related question please ask it on the faucet page. If it’s not, please open a new question for it and don’t comment on other people’s questions.
