If you accidentally sent your Bitcoin Cash (BCH) to a Bitcoin (BTC) legacy address (Non-SegWit), you can try a recover.
Remember: Bitcoin addresses that start with a 1 are legacy Non-Segwit addresses and Bitcoin addresses that start with a 3 are Segwit addresses.
Open Edge, wallets list, click on the 3 vertical dots on the right of your BCH wallet, click Master Private Key, enter your password and copy those words one by one on a notepad (you cannot copy them directly).
2. Now you need to derive the individual private keys: we recommend using Ian Coleman's tool https://iancoleman.io/bip39/. All bitcoin-related currencies in Edge can be derived using this tool.
Generally, the process to derive private keys is the same for each currency and involves these three steps:
-Enter private seed (24 word phrase) into the "BIP39 Mnemonic" field
-Change the Coin
-Select a derivation path <-- This step may be different depending on the coin and which type of address you are attempting to derive a private key for.
|Coin||Derivation Path||Full Derivation Path|
|Bitcoin (no segwit)||BIP44||m/44'/0'/0'/0|
|Bitcoin Cash (BCH)||BIP44||m/44'/145'/0'/0|
|Bitcoin Gold (BTG)||BIP49||m/49'/156'/0'/0|
|Bitcoin SV (BSV)||BIP44||m/44'/145'/0'/0|
|Uniform Fiscal Object (UFO)*||BIP49||m/49'/202'/0'/0|
A BTC transaction will be created, then you will pay a variable fee depending on the conditions of the Bitcoin network.
