litecoin to electrum, electrum coin

The Litecoin Foundation is migrating from electrum-LTC wallets to BitGo wallets.

Electrum Litecoin Wallet created a 12-word "Wallet Generation" seed. This is just the password that you can recover your wallet in some cases.

Electrum is a popular software wallet that works by connecting to a dedicated server. These servers receive a hash of the Bitcoin address in the wallet and reply with transaction information. Electrum Wallet is fast and has few resources, but by default, it connects to these servers and can easily monitor users. In addition to Electrum, some other software uses public Electrum servers. By 2019, it is a faster and better alternative to BIP37.

In a recent announcement on Twitter, Electrum advised users to disable the automatic connection option and manually select a server, while the company is developing a more powerful Electrum.

Ledger Nano S supports more than 1,000 coins and tokens, including Bitcoin, Ether, Ether Classic, Litecoin, Ripple, Dog Coins, Zcash, Dash, and many ELC-20 tokens. Nano S can interact with online wallets, MyEtherWallet, Mycelium and Electrum.

Several wallets - like Coinomi, Electrum and Wasabi - moved straight to this.

A new repo qtum-electrum-new was built to add qtum-related features to the latest code for Bitcoin electrum.

Users of Bitcoin wallet Electrum are facing a phishing attack, according to the Dev Security Lab. Hackers broadcast messages to the Electrum client through a malicious server, prompting the user to update to v4.0.0, and if the user follows the prompt to install this "backdoor-carrying client", the private key is stolen and all digital assets are stolen. At the time of writing, at least 1,450 BTCs (stolen by one user, antimalware firm Malwarebytes and Electrum) had been stolen in phishing attacks that faked Thelectrum upgrade tips, with a total value of about $11.6 million. It is worth mentioning that less than version 3.3.4 of Electrum is vulnerable to such phishing attacks, users using electrum wallets are requested to update to the latest version of Electrum 3.3.8 via the official website (electrum.org), which has not yet been officially released v4.0.0, please do not use the link in the prompt message to update to avoid loss of assets.

However, after electrum officials said in early 19th that some security mechanisms should be put in place to prevent this "update phishing", many users of Electrum are still in the old 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.

"The initial version has BCH and BTC, and by integrating elements from BTC Electrum into BCH Electron Cash - other Bitcoin-compatible coins can be added later, such as litecoin, dash, doge, etc.," the developer explains in detail.

In recent days, hackers or hacker groups have stolen more than 200 bitcoins worth about $750,000 by attacking the infrastructure of electrum Bitcoin wallets. The attacker is targeting Electrum.

Electrum users are reminded of the Update Tip, which indicates that the new version of Electrum is likely to be fake, and if installed, transfer Bitcoin out in another security environment in a timely manner.

This Electrum server is derived from Electrs and is now maintained separately by the Blockstream engineering team. Over the past two years, Esplora has become one of the fastest and most scalable Electrum server solutions available for Bitcoin due to continuous updates and performance optimization. Esplora is also the only Electrum server that supports liquid networks.
