How To Recover Funds Sent to a Wrong Public Address (ETH, ETC, CLO, POA)

How to get the Private Key

If you accidentally send ETH (or ETC or CLO or X ) to your POA address (CLO address or ETC address or X address ) you can recover them. Please make sure you have backed up your recovery phrase and then follow the process outlined below.

Step 1 - Access Mnemonic Code Converter Site

Open https://iancoleman.io/bip39

Step 2 - Input your Recovery Phrase

Enter your recovery phrase into the “BIP39 Mnemonic” field

Step 3 - Coin/Token Selection

Select the coin you accidentally send your funds too
Example: If you sent POA to your ETH wallet, select ETH - Ethereum in this field.

Step 4 - Get the Private Key

Note:
Scroll down and find the Derivation Path section if the token is not listed.

Copy your Private Key from the first row.

Step 5 - Recover your Wallet

Import this private key as the coin you are trying to recover (POA, ETC, ETH or X wallet) inside your Trust Wallet App.
Example: If you sent POA to your ETH wallet, import your private key as POA.

Important:
If the coin you accidentally send your funds too is missing from step 4, you need to chose ETH - Ethereum and then select the BIP44 option under Derivation Path.
