Matic sent from binance to ETH address via matic network address lost

Newbie here! I wanted to transfer matic from binance exchange to my ledger live wallet but without really knowing I chose Matic Network and it didn’t reach. The transfer was successfully completed, as it shows on polygonscan. Is there a way to recover the matic? Kindly help.

Thanks in advance.

Hello @Finalscream Kindly chat with one of the dev on live chat to get a faster response MATIC FORUM LIVE CHAT

Hi @Finalscream , unfortunately we cannot help you with this.

Note : Please don’t send funds directly to exchanges that support only Ethereum you have to first withdraw from Matic to Ethereum and then send it to your exchange address.
We have mentioned this in the disclaimer that we show before your go-ahead with the send functionality on the Matic wallet.

This is exactly what happened to me. I think I should’ve used Ethereum (ERC20) for the network instead of Matic since the Matic token is under Ethereum in my Trezor. feeldsbadman

I hope the devs can do something about this in the future since a lot seems to be making this mistake.
