Can I recover BTC sent to the Ordinal address in Xverse?

With the latest version of the Xverse browser extension (v0.21.0), you can now see and transfer Bitcoin mistakenly sent to the ordinals address.

Step 1:

Go to the Collectibles tab and select "Rare Sats." Regular Bitcoin will now display as an "Unknown Rarity Sats" bundle.


Step 2:

Because Xverse only supports the Rodarmor Rarity Index for rare sats, you would need to connect your wallet to or input your ordinals address into Magic Eden to see if you have sats of unsupported rarity in your wallet, like pizza sats. 

If no rare sats are detected, they will be labeled as "Common - Safe to Spend."


Step 3:

Select the bundle and transfer it to your BTC payment address. The app will give you a warning message, which you can disregard since this does not apply to regular Bitcoin transfers. Ensure you have enough BTC in your payment address to cover transaction fees. 


Important note:

We are aware of a bug that causes the recovery transaction to appear double negative in your BTC payment history. This is harmless, and we are working to fix this 🙌
