Help!

I sent BCH to my Dash wallet on my Ledger Nano S.

I can see the little Dash I have but of course no BCH. Is there anything I can do?

This is the transaction id:
dfa79e8d3efc9909daaac8c79a542b7d24472614abe2ff8f167404a51abbf199

I appreciate any help :)

That is wierd. Regular dash addresses start with 'X' but dfa79e8d3efc9909daaac8c79a542b7d24472614abe2ff8f167404a51abbf199 shows receive address starting with '1'
I didn't know that! You made me check and I did not sent to an Dash account... I sent to a sub account inside my BTC wallet... I have no idea how I screwed up so badly...
If you happen to help with the actual situation it would be much appreciated.

Thanks Antti.

So you accidentally sent from bch address to btc address? I think in that case you can import the private key from the bitcoin wallet into the bitcoin cash wallet. What wallets are you using?

Yes, that’s what I did. I’m using a ledger nano s (btc) and I sent the bch from bitcoin classic on my laptop.

You can use this tool https://iancoleman.io/bip39/ (works offline) to retrieve btc private key which corresponds to the btc address you sent coins to on bch blockchain - enter your mnemonic from ledger and it should generate you a list. Once it's done, look for the address you sent to.
You can then import this btc private key into bitcoin classic or any other bch wallet (or swipe it).
