Electrum is a fantastic app because it protects you should you have the misfortune of losing coins because of a problem with your PC or alike. A secret seed allows you to recover your encrypted Bitcoin wallet. You will fail to find another Bitcoin app that provides as high levels of security as Electrum does.

Description

Electrum is an easy to use Bitcoin client. It protects you from losing coins in a backup mistake or computer failure, because your wallet can be recovered from a secret phrase that you can write on paper or learn by heart. There is no waiting time when you start the client, because it does not download the Bitcoin blockchain.

Features:

  •     Instant on: Your client does not download the blockchain, it uses a remote server.
  •     Forgiving: Your wallet can be recovered from a secret seed.
  •     Safe: Private keys are never sent to the server. Information sent by the server is verified using SPV
  •     No downtimes: Several public servers are available, you can switch instantly.
  •     Ubiquitous: You can use the same wallet on different computers, it will auto-synchronize.
  •     Open: You can export your private keys into other Bitcoin clients.
