I have an XMR Monero wallet on my MAC computer, went through Changelly and sent (accidentally) XMO to it instead of XMR. Everything was correct except I sent XMO instead of XMR. I have looked at a couple of posts but they seem to be referring to recovering an XMR transaction to an XMR wallet. I have installed monero-original-v0.11.2.0 CLI wallet with the same seed words and now have the same address as my XMR wallet. That's where I'm stuck, the wallet is sync'd but I still don't have any balance. I also tried creating a wallet from a specific date. Can anyone help with where to go from here? thanks - H Mark.
Edit: Seems the question has been answered by dEBRUYNE in comments above. Therein lies the answer.
Use your XMR seed with the XMO client to get your funds back. You can still exchange them to XMR at Changelly, but I wouldn't count on that being the case forever, as XMO is not, as far as I know, used by anyone, at all, for anything.
XmanXU has posted on github the fork, though I would not recommend using it. The person advertised the publication on reddit as well, to near-universal disapproval, by the way. It seems to be a scam coin that actually hurts the privacy of XMR itself.
Here is what I did to get my XMO back into a wallet and then transfer it somewhere else. The GUI wallet will not work. I don't know why except that it "seems" to be syncing to the wrong chain. I had to download the CLI (command line interface) wallet and run the Monerod application from a terminal. It took many days for the sync to complete and there were many errors appearing as it did so. When the sync completely finished. I used my original seed words and password to recreate a wallet with the same address as the XMO was sent to. Only then could I see my balance and I quickly sent it somewhere else to get the XMO out of that wallet and into a different coin. I can provide the commands to recreate the wallet, etc., but I would have to research it on the Internet. To answer where your XMO coin is... it's simply a blockchain transaction. When you sync the appropriate XMO blockchain and open the appropriate wallet with the receiving address, the XMO will appear there. You can delete the wallet and recreate it because the record of where the coin is supposed to be is in the blockchain. That's my very basic understanding of it from many days of trying to recover my XMO and figure out what was happening. Sync to the correct blockchain, recreate your wallet, and you will have your coin. However, if you don't have your seed words and password used to create the address, I don't know what you can do. Those are necessary to recreate a wallet with the matching address.
