Wallet service Electrum plans to support Bitcoin Lightning online trading technology by the end of July.
Hackers launched a denial-of-service (DoS) attack on a well-known wallet Electrum server, according to Johnwick.io. Hackers used botnets of more than 140,000 computers to attack Electrum nodes and simultaneously deployed malicious nodes. When a user connects to these malicious nodes and sends a transaction using an older version of Electrum, the user is prompted to update the Backdoor Client. If the user installs the client as prompted, the private key is stolen and all digital assets are lost. Millions of dollars of digital currency have been stolen, according to Electrum officials. De-dimensional Security Labs recommends that users of electrum wallets be updated to the latest version of the client through the official website and never use the link in the prompt message.

imtoken is a universal wallet that supports the addition of custom ERC20 tokens. If the user wants to trade TRY with imtoken, they need to enter the address of the TRY contract manually, which is a bit of a hassle for the user. And our web wallet, natively supports try of ERC20. The user does not need to manually add the address of the TRY contract, and the balance of ETH and TRY is automatically displayed when the wallet loads the key file. When sending a transaction, simply select Send ETH or TRY in the pull-down box. Users do not need to manually enter the address of the TRY contract, and unnecessary risk factors such as user input address errors are avoided.
