The server indexes UTXOs by address, in a Patricia tree structure described by Alan Reiner (see the 'ultimate blockchain compression' thread in the Bitcointalk forum)
The server requires okcashd, leveldb and plyvel
The server code is open source. Anyone can run a server, removing single points of failure concerns.
The server knows which set of OKCash 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. An i2p electrum server, as well as tor based electrum server will be worked for if requested by the community.
To install and run a server, see INSTALL. For greater detail on the installation process, see HOWTO.md.
To start and stop the server, use the 'electrum-ok-server' script
