    Thank god it was just $.04.

    Trying to learn all this I downloaded the bitcoin app so I could practice sending between my wallets and whatnot. They give you like .04 bucks to practice with, and yeah I fucked up the first transaction. I didn't realize it was bitcoin cash they give you in your wallet and not bitcoins. Anyways sent the cash to a bitcoin addy and couldn't figure out why it wasn't showing up....And from what I've researched it's gone forever in cryptospace.

    For four cents? It’s gone for good and for that amount isn’t worth jumping thru hoops to recover.

    Plain bitcoin is different than bitcoin cash.

    What BTC wallet were you sending TO? You should be able to recover it. Even though it is 4 cents, it will be a good learning experience for you.
