Why use Electrum? Here are a dozen of the benefits of electrum wallets.
Dash Electrum 22.214.171.124 was released, renamed Dash-Electrum, adding the option to use Tor Proxy at startup, according to Dash Coin. DASH is now trading at $159, down 3.26 percent.
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.

All in all, Electrum has a good reputation in the market. The wallet's UI may not be pretty enough, but it's worth using. That's it, we're at the end of the Electrum wallet review. I hope you find it useful.
Users of Bitcoin wallet Electrum are facing phishing attacks, according to Johnwick.io. Hackers broadcast messages to electrum clients through a malicious server, prompting the user to update to v4.0.0, and if the user is prompted 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 worth approximately $11.6 million had been stolen from phishing attacks that forged Electrum upgrade alerts. Devi Security Labs hereby suggests that versions of Electrum below 3.3.4 are vulnerable to such phishing attacks, and users using Electrum Wallet are requested to update to the latest version of Electrum3.3.8 via the official website (electrum.org), which has not yet been officially released v4.0.0, and do not use the link in the prompt message to avoid asset losses.
As mentioned earlier, because electrum light wallets are different from Bitcoin light wallets such as MultiBit or Breadwallet, they cannot communicate directly with bitcoin full nodes and can only communicate with electrum.
