    Bitcoin confusion

    Hey guys have a question about bitcoin. If I send bitcoin to someoneís email instead of a bitcoin wallet address what happens. I check and the email is registered as a bitcoin account. It says sent received. Guy is denying he received it saying Iím a scammer? What should I do?

    Good question cgeorgemeow. Tell us more about how you sent your bitcoin. Did you use an app?

    Bitcoin (BTC) can be frustratingly slow. Many times, it'll work out, after enough confirmations.

    Yeah I used one called coinbase, it’s actually really fast to be honest. I sent it using coinbase got confirmation also. From what I understand on another board if not claimed in 30 days it should refund. This is my first time using it to do a transaction so I guess I’ll have to wait and see.

    When you send btc it goes through 3 verifications. If it doesnít pass all the it doesnít send, if you tried sending it to an email address rather then a wallet ID itís not going to verify

    Never sent bitcoin to an email address. How did you check the email is registered to an account? Imagine this is a feature from the exchange?

    It's not easy.

    Did the guy give you a bitcoin address or email address to collect payment?
