This makes Electrum by far the oldest wallet to use Lightning payment methods.
In early April, Cointelegraph reported that the ongoing DoS attack on the Electrum network was allegedly launched by a malicious botnet of more than 140,000 machines in order to steal a user's BTC by calling it a fake version of electrum software.
Bitcoin wallet Electrum released 4.0 beta, new support for Lightning Network and other updates
As mentioned earlier, because electrum light wallets are different from Bitcoin light wallets such as MultiBit or Breadwallet, they cannot communicate directly with bitcoin full nodes and can only communicate with electrum.
The UB team has now developed Core, Core-QT, Electrum Wallet (where Electrum is a lightweight wallet that supports multiple signatures) and released a complete blockchain browser. More than 18 trading platforms around the world support UBTC trading.
Digital Wallet Electrum was hacked, losing 250 bitcoins.
A new repo qtum-electrum-new has been built to add qtum-related features to the latest code for Bitcoin electrum.
Ideas don't work like that. We are are not something you can pull out of thin air. Ideas are like the fruit of a tree; If you want a tree to grow more fruit, you don't ask yourself "how can I make more fruit." You ask yourself "what can I do to make this tree grow more fruit?" How can I make this tree healthy?"
Electrum is a world-renowned Bitcoin light wallet with a long history of multi-signature support and a very broad user base, many of which like to use Electrum as a cold wallet or multi-signature wallet for Bitcoin or even USDT (Omni). Based on this usage scenario, Electrum is used less frequently on the user's computer. The current version of Electrum is 3.3.8, and previous versions of 3.3.4 are known to have "message defects" that allow an attacker to send an "update prompt" through a malicious ElectrumX server. This "update tip" is very confusing to the user, and if you follow the prompt to download the so-called new version of Electrum, you may be tricked. According to user feedback, because of this attack, stolen bitcoins are in the four digits or more.
