ERROR WITH INVALID ADDRESS WHEN SENDING XDC COINS? 

Introduction

How to fix the Invalid Address error when sending XDC coins from MyEtherWallet is covered in this article.

The Not ETH network error that results from this problem also affects MetaMask.

Solution

Both these errors can be solved by replacing the prefix "xdc" with "0x" in the destination address.
For example:

xdc3d49D8A92274C5C7be99B331E05f3851eB51D234

becomes

0x3d49D8A92274C5C7be99B331E05f3851eB51D234

This will make it possible for MetaMask and MyEtherWallet to comprehend the destination address and send your coins on the XDC Network to the appropriate account without any problems.

We strongly advise sending a small test XDC amount first if this is the first time you are encountering this problem.

Thanks but how do you send XDC from wallet.xinfin.network/#/? When you put in the EVM address that begins “0x” it automatically changes it to one that begins “XDC”. I did three small payments and now I want to try to recover the money but I can’t seem to manage it. It doesn’t seem to be any way to change this. Any suggestions?

Could you send the transaction hashes?

Sure, here is one:

0xbde8da31029c879124e3135aaaa64bdcd1aac69da03da60dc97e4c3c49a167bd

Do you know if there’s any way that I can actually edit the address during the “send” process using this wallet? It seems strange that the address cannot be edited.

Many thanks for your help.

This is one I sent from X to my Nano Ledger which signed the txn.

0x28ae76feff9f028d427c05541da22737f87e28067f15a84e00d0a19bace588b0

Didn’t arrive, same as the others probably because I cannot edit the mandatory address (provided on wallet.xinfin.network) away from an XDC one to an EVM one e.g. beginning with “0x”.

It’s getting frustrating now :-)
