Note: If you are sending BTC from Poloniex, they will send you a confirmation mail to your email ID. Until you confirm it from there, the amount will not get deposited in your Bittrex wallet.

Now, as I told in my earlier posts, please be careful while sending your money from one wallet to another. Always send the same currency from one wallet to another.

Example- You should always send BTC from Poloniex BTC wallet to your Bittrex BTC wallet. If you want to send ETH, then copy the ETH address from your Bittrex account and send ETH accordingly. If you make any mistake here, you may kiss a goodbye to the coins.
