Easy to use Bitcoin client

Easy to use Bitcoin client
from version 1.8-1


This package provides a lightweight Bitcoin client which protects you from losing your bitcoins in a backup mistake or computer failure. Also, Electrum does not require waiting time because it does not download the Bitcoin blockchain.

Features of Electrum:

  * Instant on: Your client does not download the blockchain. It uses a
    network of specialized servers that index the blockchain.
  * Forgiving: Your wallet can be recovered from a secret seed.
  * Safe: Your seed and private keys are encrypted on your hard drive.
    They are never sent to the servers.
  * Low trust: Information received from the servers is verified using
    SPV. Servers are authenticated using SSL.
  * No downtimes: Your client is not tied to a particular server; it
    will switch instantly if your server is down.
  * Ubiquitous: You can use the same wallet on different computers, they
    will synchronize automatically.
  * Cold Storage: Sign transactions from a computer that is always
    offline. Broadcast them using a machine that does not have your keys.
  * Reachable: You can export your private keys into other Bitcoin
  * Established: Electrum is open source and was first released in
    November 2011.
