I sent funds to the wrong address. How do I get them back?

Sometimes you may accidentally send your cryptocurrency to the wrong wallet address.

As cryptocurrency transactions are irreversible, they can neither be canceled nor reversed once initiated. In case you end up sending the funds to the wrong person, you may have to contact them and request a refund. If you don’t know whom the address belongs to, you can’t do anything else to retrieve the funds.

Warning: Always double-check and ensure that the address you’re sending funds to, exactly matches the address of the recipient beforehand.
