Electrum Wallet Guide

Recommended Posts

The Electrum Client (Downloadable at https://www.dash.org/downloads/) focuses on speed, with low resource usage and simplifying Dash usage. Startup times are instant because it operates in conjunction with high-performance servers that handle the most complicated parts of the Dash system.


The Electrum is a lightweight Wallet, you do NOT need to download or Sync the Blockchain (so the Wallet is lighter and faster)


But it is missing Dash "Features" as

  • PrivacyProtect
  • InstantX
  • Mastered Connection
  • Voting
  • but it is much easier, faster and lighter to handle.

How to install

Mac Installation:

PC Installation:

Download and run the one labelled “Windows Installer”.


Linux Installation:

Using the Terminal application, run the following commands:

$sudo apt-get install python-qt4 python-pip python-slowaes
$sudo pip install https://www.dash.org/binaries/Electrum-DASH-2.4.1_Linux_x86_64-Installer.bin


  1. Download Electrum-DASH-2.4.1_Linux_x86_64-Installer.bin from here https://www.dash.org/downloads/ 
  2. Open terminal, CD to location of file download.
  3. 'LS' command, make sure Electrum-DASH-2.4.1_Linux_x86_64-Installer.bin is listed.
  4. chmod +x Electrum-DASH-2.4.1_Linux_x86_64-Installer.bin
  5. paste the following code into terminal ./Electrum-DASH-2.4.1_Linux_x86_64-Installer.bin

These commands will change when a new version of electrum is released because the file name will also be changed. 


So I wouldn't go pasting this anywhere, if you do remove the 2.4.1_linux_x86 and note that the exact name needs to be used.


Since Ubuntu 14.04 they made it possible to install Electrum through the Software Center. Click the briefcase icon to the left of the Ubuntu desktop. Then enter “electrum” into the search box of the Software Center window.
