Electron Cash - Lightweight Bitcoin Cash client

Licence: MIT Licence
Author: Jonald Fyookball
Language: Python
Help translate Electron Cash online

Getting started

Electron Cash is a pure python application forked from Electrum. If you want to use the Qt interface, install the Qt dependencies:

sudo apt-get install python3-pyqt5 python3-pyqt5.qtsvg

If you downloaded the official package (tar.gz), you can run Electron Cash from its root directory (called Electrum), without installing it on your system; all the python dependencies are included in the 'packages' directory. To run Electron Cash from its root directory, just do:


You can also install Electron Cash on your system, by running this command:

sudo apt-get install python3-setuptools
python3 install

This will download and install the Python dependencies used by Electron Cash, instead of using the 'packages' directory.

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

Development version

Check out the code from Github:

git clone
cd Electron-Cash

Run install (this should install dependencies):

python3 install

or for Debian based systems ( tested on Debian v9 Stretch ):

sudo apt update
sudo apt install python3-dnspython python3-pyaes libsecp256k1-0 python3-protobuf python3-jsonrpclib-pelix python3-ecdsa python3-qrcode python3-pyqt5 python3-socks


Compile the protobuf description file:

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

Create translations (optional):

sudo apt-get install python-requests gettext

For plugin development, see the plugin documentation.

Running unit tests:

pip install tox

Tox will take care of building a faux installation environment, and ensure that the mapped import paths work correctly.
