money sent on the DAI contract

Hello,
On the FTM blockchain I accidentally sent money to the DAI contract address instead of another address.
How do I get my funds back?

I’m not familiar with FTM, so I’m not sure if they have any ways to recover funds, but sadly the most likely scenario is that they can’t be retrieved, and are lost forever. In any case it is not something MakerDAO can assist with. Sorry to be the bearer of bads news.

The longest shot is that if the FTM addresses are derived the same way as in Ethereum, whoever has the private keys for the “Dai contract” could retrieve them.

@hexonaut tweeted about this some month ago?

That special circumstance doesn’t apply to funds sent to the contract address. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do in this case.
