A new version of Electrum Wallet v0.18.16 was released.
Electrum is a desktop Bitcoin wallet that supports multiple operating platforms. The German computer scientist designed efficient, lightweight features.
By default, electrum wallets are randomly connected to a set of Electrum servers. From a privacy perspective, this is not a good thing because it discloses your wallet address and balance to unknown third parties.
