Axe Electrum - Lightweight AXE client

Electrum-AXE logo

Build Status

Getting started

Use PPA setup

On Ubuntu/Linux Mint you can try to install Axe Electrum with next commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:axerunners/axe-electrum
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install axe-electrum

Use source distribution

Axe Electrum is a pure python application. If you want to use the Qt interface, install the Qt dependencies:

sudo apt-get install python3-pyqt5

If you downloaded the official package (tar.gz), you can run Axe Electrum from its root directory without installing it on your system; all the python dependencies are included in the 'packages' directory (except x11-hash).

To install x11-hash dependency in the 'packages' dir run once:

python3 -m pip install -t packages x11-hash

To install precise tested versions of HW libs (trezor, ledeger, etc) run once:

python3 -m pip install -t packages -r contrib/deterministic-build/requirements-hw.txt

To install precise tested version of pyqt5 run once:

python3 -m pip install -t packages -r contrib/deterministic-build/requirements-binaries.txt

To run Axe Electrum from its root directory, just do:


You can also install Axe Electrum on your system, by running this command:

sudo apt-get install python3-setuptools
python3 -m pip install .[fast]

This will download and install the Python dependencies used by Axe Electrum instead of using the 'packages' directory. The 'fast' extra contains some optional dependencies that we think are often useful but they are not strictly needed.

If you cloned the git repository, you need to compile extra files before you can run Axe Electrum. Read the next section, "Development Version".

Using Tor proxy

Starting from Axe Electrum release automatic Tor Proxy detection and use on wallet startup is added to Network preferences.

To use Tor Proxy on Ubuntu set it up with:

sudo apt-get install tor
sudo service tor start

Other platforms setup is described at docs/

Development version

Check out the code from GitHub:

git clone
cd electrum-axe

Run install (this should install dependencies):

python3 -m pip install .[fast]

Compile the protobuf description file:

sudo apt-get install protobuf-compiler
protoc --proto_path=electrum_axe --python_out=electrum_axe electrum_axe/paymentrequest.proto

Create translations (optional):

sudo apt-get install python-requests gettext
You can’t perform that action at this time.
