Binance

Although Binance does not require recovery fees, the platform still offers assistance for users that encountered deposit-related issues.

Issue Binance Policy
Missing or Wrong Tag: If the user forgot or used the wrong tag, memo, or payment ID, their deposit won’t be credited.To recover, users can apply online.
Deposit to Incorrect Address or Unlisted Token: Binance might help recover tokens in cases of substantial losses resulting from an incorrect deposit, but success is not assured. 
Deposit to Incorrect External Address: No additional support is provided if tokens are sent to a non-Binance address. The firm advised users to reach out to the relevant party, such as the address owner or the associated exchange/platform, for assistance.

OKX

In a media release last month, OKX stated that to expedite recovery, accounts with deposits under USD 15,880 are being credited in advance with the platform’s funds. Moreover, the exchange noted that its forthcoming 3rd generation wallet is anticipated to resolve such issues by sharing deposit addresses for various tokens. 

However, users are advised to check details carefully before depositing to avoid complications; according to OKX, fund recovery involves a complex and time-consuming procedure.

Coinbase

In accordance with its recent policy, a company now provides an asset recovery service for verified customers to retrieve certain lost ERC-20 assets—if users try to recover an ineligible asset, they will be notified during the process.

If a user sent an unsupported cryptocurrency to Coinbase, it might qualify for recovery; the platform however will apply a network fee for the recovery attempt and a 5% recovery fee for amounts exceeding $100. The estimated recovery value may vary from the actual market value.

However, the recovery service is not available to customers in Japan or Prime/Custody customers.

Bybit

If unsupported coins are mistakenly deposited into a Bybit wallet address, the Bybit team states that it may initiate an asset recovery process, contingent upon the associated recovery fees. 

Users that wish to recover assets are advised to complete the Asset Recovery form, and the exchange will reach out within 1-3 working days.
