Note: Some antivirus applications might trigger alerts for Electrum. However, these are false positives since our tests have shown that the tool can be safely downloaded and installed.
Electrum is a Bitcoin client that allows you to administer all your wallets in a single place and prevent losing coins due to various events, such as system crashes. It comes packed with several powerful and intuitive features.
Simple installer and GUI
After a brief setup operation that doesn’t require special input, you are greeted by a common wizard that invites you to create a new wallet, restore or import one, as well as to select the wallet type between standard, two-factor authentication, multi-signature, and hardware.
The main application window has a clear-cut structure that permits you to create new contacts, change the wallet password, import and export labels or private keys, as well as to examine and export history.
Manage wallet settings easily
It’s possible to specify a receiving address, message and requested amount of bitcoins, review all current addresses and sign, verify, encrypt or decrypt messages, create and load transactions, or investigate invoices and console messages.
What’s more, Electrum lets you alter the network server, protocol and proxy, enable various plugins to exchange rates or synchronize labels, for example, switch to another UI language, base measurement unit, online block explorer and video device, and more.
Evaluation and conclusion
No error dialogs were shown in our tests, and the software utility didn’t hang or crash. Unsurprisingly, it had low impact on the overall performance of the computer, thanks to the fact that it needed low CPU and memory to work properly. All in all, Electrum comes in handy to all users looking for a safe way to manage their wallets with bitcoins.
