Electrum Dash

About wallet

Electrum Dash is a light wallet which uses powerful external servers to index the blockchain, while still securing the keys on your personal computer. Transactions are verified on the Dash blockchain using a technique called Secure Payment Verification (SPV), which only requires the block headers and not the full block. This means that wallet startup is almost instant, while still keeping your funds secure and mobile. Electrum Dash also supports advanced InstantSend, CoinJoin and masternode features.

The wallet was developed via funding of Dash DAO and currently maintained by Dash Incubator. Electrum Dash is a fork of the Electrum wallet for Bitcoin. While this documentation focuses on using Electrum Dash, full documentation of all Bitcoin Electrum features (mostly identical in Electrum Dash) is available at the official documentation site.

Seed is a random phrase that is used to generate your private keys. Your wallet can be entirely recovered from its seed. To do this, select the I already have a seed option during startup.

How secure is the seed?

Seed created by Electrum Dash has 128 bits of entropy. This means that it provides the same level of security as a Dash private key (of length 256 bits). Indeed, an elliptic curve key of length n provides n/2 bits of security.

How can I send the maximum available in my wallet?
