Questions received last month:

What does a forked transaction mean?
A transaction is forked when the block it's within has been dropped or reorged in favor of another block. When that happens, the transaction will be treated on-chain as if it never existed.

I accidentally sent funds to a contract address. What can I do?
Contracts can only execute functions written into its source code. You won't be able to get a refund unless the contract has a specific function allowing it to make transfers. Always best to contact the contract deployer! More here.
