Advanced programming languages: declarative programming vs. command programming, syntax, formal validation characteristics, type systems, protective features (e.g. prohibition of the use of nonpure functions in arithmetic expressions), locally supported privacy features, etc.; UTXO (unused transaction output) model, different rental schemes, raw Merkel branch witness vs. SNARK/STARK compression vs. RSA accumulator, sparse Merkel tree vs. AVL tree vs. usage-based imbalance, etc. (in addition, there are different scenarios for verifying state transitions)
Lightning support in Electrum has been around for a long time. Thomas Voegtlin, the founder of Electrum, first told CoinDesk last summer that Lightning would take it to the next version.
Electrum wallets have been hacked in recent days and nearly 250 bitcoins have been stolen, according to blockchain security team Devi Security Labs. This attack, confirmed by Electrum, involves creating a fake version of the wallet to trick users into providing password information. Electrum responded on Twitter that "this is an ongoing phishing attack on Electrum users and advised users to download wallet apps from the official website." Mars Finance reminds users not to install electrum wallets from unknown sources.
Popular wallet developer Electrum has released an emergency patch for a key vulnerability in its Bitcoin wallet. The vulnerability allows any website hosting electrum wallets to potentially steal a user's cryptocurrency. A vulnerability means that the password is exposed to the JSONRPC interface, implying that the hacker has full control over the wallet. The first patch failed to fix the problem, forcing Electrum to release a second update on Sunday night.
