Electrum-server for the Electrum client

  • Author: thomasv@bitcointalk
  • Language: Python

Features

  • The server uses a bitcoind and a leveldb backend.
  • The server code is open source. Anyone can run a server, removing single points of failure concerns.
  • The server knows which set of Bitcoin addresses belong to the same wallet, which might raise concerns about anonymity. However, it should be possible to write clients capable of using several servers.

Installation

  1. To install and run a pruning server (easiest setup) see README.leveldb
  2. Install jsonrpclib.
  3. Launch the server: nohup python -u server.py > /var/log/electrum.log & or use the included start script.

See the included HOWTO.md for greater detail on the installation process.
