Recover/Ask for EGLD sent to wrong address


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I've sent some EGLD to a wrong address. The intended action was to send the EGLD back to the wallet they came from (mine, on an exchange), but it turns out the address I received the EGLD from was not mine, but a ... smart contract/validator one?

 

Anyway, is there a way to recover the EGLD? Or a way to contact the wallet owner?

Here's the transaction info. https://explorer.elrond.com/transactions/eb8139d283c92f84e7d761256c47eb33a6d57c4175199a4fc98ef619716e5cca

 

Thanks,

 

Alex

If you did a withdraw from an exchange and you sent back to the same address you received from, the address should be under the exchange control.

You need then to open an issue with the exchange you used and give them the transaction details.
