In this demo, Electrum developer Chris Belcher shows how to set up and use an Electrum personal server.
A new repo qtum-electrum-new has been built to add qtum-related features to the latest code for Bitcoin electrum.
The main reason for the Trezor vulnerability is that it does not have built-in multi-signature functionality, so its multi-signature implementation is to support Electrum extensions. This leads to an attack on Electrum, and Trezor is affected.
Basic integration with the electrum server (experimental feature, turned off by default)
Bitcoin desktop wallet client Electrum has released a 4.0 beta version, adding several important updates, including support for the Lightning network, nearly a year after the previous version of Electrum, 3.3.8 (last July). In the 4.0 beta version, Electrum mainly added features such as PSBT (partially signed Bitcoin transactions), Lightning Network, watchtowers (暸 watchtowers) and Submarineswaps (subliminal switching).

People can store bitcoins offline in a variety of ways, such as using hardware Bitcoin wallets or paper wallets from companies such as Trezor, Opendime, Ledger and Keepkey. However, Bitcoin users can also create a Bitcoin wallet on a cheap USB stick to take offline.
If you determine that your old wallet cannot be recovered by a third party (for example, the software has been deleted, or your paper wallet has been compromised), simply import the private key into the new wallet. When you work with Bitcoin Wallet, you'll see the following options.
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.
According to Bleeping Computer, the Bitcoin wallet app Electrom was on GitHub on May 9th, accusing a phishing product called Electrum Pro of stealing a user's seed key and registering a domain name called electrum without Electrum's permission. The Electrum team noted that there was a piece of code indicating that the counterfeit product might have taken the user's seed key and uploaded it to the electrum. Affected users should transfer funds from Bitcoin URLs managed by Eletrum Pro.
