Cryptsy withdrawal to incorrect address
« on: May 07, 2014, 02:42:36 am »

Help required..

I have purchased a bunch of nxt from Cryptsy.

I have withdrawn to an incorrect address and the withdrawal is stuck in pending. The address does not exist, its not owned by anyone else.

Is there anything I can do to get my coins?

Please help me!

Contact cryptsy and try to get them stop? If they made the transaction, unfortunately, there is nothing you can do.

This is a problem that RS address format will completely solve. You won't be able to send money to wrong address.

Still waiting on cryptsy response.

Cant accept that they are lost forever, I know the address they were sent to. Is there a way to create a new account with that address?

Shattered, this is my first venture into crypto

Cryptsy are really slow with withdrawals. Maybe this time that will turn out to be a good thing. Do they have a chat service?

How many Nxt are at stake?

Not really. You have to create a password that results in the same account number. If you try 1 billion passwords a seconds, it will still take maybe 200 years if you are lucky.

It was around 8000, peanuts for some. This has been resolved, I managed to get big Vern to cancel the transaction while it was still pending.

I got lucky, the account number I used was not an active one. Really appreciate your help, thanks.

It doesn't male a difference. The account doesn't have to be active to send Nxt to it. You got lucky that cryptsy has been very slow.

I think this thread is prime example why we need to make  RS address format default as soon as possible. It saves users from exactly this kind of mistakes.

Hey,
I have a major problem, just like previous example, except I dont know how to contact Big Vern it might seem quite dumb, but it's the case ! I sent a message to Crypsty's support, but maybe faster in other method ?
I put wrong adress, actually, I had it on my wallet, that I opened for first time, and it closed (maybe my mistake, and at re-open, the ID was different !!
If anyone can help me out here, it would be very appreciated, says an unwise newbie
