Scenario 3: ERC20 token sent to Ether Classic address
ERC20 tokens are tokens that “store” on the Ethereum block chain. To send them, you have to use the Ethereum network. This means that you need Ether to pay the Ethereum network fees.
Send Ether to Ether Classic address
And this is the problem when sending ERC20 tokens to an Ether Classic address. There are no ethers on this Ether Classic address that could be used for the Ether transaction costs.
Therefore you have to send a small Ether amount to the Ether Classic address, where the ERC20 tokens are stored, in order to be able to send the ERC20 tokens later. The Ethgasstation website is helpful for calculating transaction fees. But even if too much ether has been transferred, it can be transferred back.
