Cryptopia allowing withdrawals to invalid BTC addresses

I made a stupid mistake and accidentally pasted in "WithdrawalDeposit" along with my BTC address. I didn't even catch it when I hit confirm in my email. Now it's been stuck as 'Processing' for a while.

How did this get through? I seem to remember getting an immediate error when I did the same thing previously. Is Cryptopia not doing simple hashchecks on the address before accepting a withdrawal request?

Did this ever get resolved?

I just did the same thing - put my e-mail address in the field it actually wanted to HUSH address to go to.

Hoping they can reverse it. 

:(

Same problem.

We are all waiting on team Cryptopia. If they can pull this off I will have faith in this exchange!

 It is your mistake. You pasted it in the address box and you confirmed it. 

Check twice before crossing the road. Pointless blaming the road for not having a barrier.

Once submitted to the coin network it is GONE.

 Some mistakes are too serious to be able to be fixed.

Once you submit a TX to a coin network it is no longer under your or the exchange control.

Coin networks are immutible. 

immutable

  1. unchanging over time or unable to be changed.
