Hey Profsam,
 
OK that sounds like a scam, sorry to say. If the bitcoin amount is located within an address controlled by your wallet, then your private keys control it.
 
You can’t make a transaction to another blockchain, Bitcoin transactions can only be made between different addresses on the Bitcoin blockchain.
 
The seller is lying about the private key and it sounds like he’s trying to scam you. Please let me know the situation in more detail, perhaps I can help further if I understand what’s going on exactly.
