Bittrex's deposit recovery policy

Bittrex will attempt to recover funds for the following scenarios and the time frame of recovery is at our discretion. It is possible that some tokens may not be recoverable. In the event your tokens are not recoverable, Bittrex will return the recovery free, minus any transaction fees or other expenses.  Please note, all fees are payable in USDT, USDC, or TUSD.

This policy does not apply to deposits with incorrect or missing memos on currencies such as CryptoNote, NXT, BitShares, STEEM, or any others that rely on a message/memo/tag for crediting deposits. If you are missing a deposit due to a missing memo/tag, submit your request here. 


Cross-chain deposit recovery

A deposit of one coin to a different coin's address is considered a crosschain deposit.

Bittrex will only attempt to recover crosschain deposits after receiving payment of the $1,000 recovery charge.

At this time, Bittrex will attempt to recover the following crosschain pairs:

  • BTC > BCH
  • BTC > BSV
  • BCH > BTC
  • BSV > BTC
  • ETH > ETC


  • BCH/BSV crosschain deposits will not be recovered. Please use caution when sending BCH/BSV as there is no replay protection.
  • Bittrex may, in its sole discretion, attempt to recover other crosschains. Any fees associated with these recoveries may vary based on the specific crosschain.            
  • Bittrex will not recover funds that were distributed as part of an ICO.


Removed wallet token recovery

Bittrex will attempt to recover tokens from wallets that have been removed, however mainnet coin recoveries are no longer supported. Bittrex notifies customers multiple times prior to removing wallets for a token from the exchange. Bittrex generally seeks to provide customers up to 30 days to withdraw funds from wallets that are schedule to be removed from the exchange. Customers who do not withdraw their funds before the communicated deadline will be subject to a $2,500 recovery fee for the wallet balance of the individual token they wish Bittrex to recover on their behalf.


Unsupported ERC20 token recovery

Bittrex will attempt to recover unsupported ERC20 tokens sent to the exchange for a fee of $2,500 per recovery.
