Localbitcoins does not support sending to bech32 #5371
I have just downloaded Electrum 3.6.6. updated version to my PC (windows).
Installed the process and have the wallet, but when i tried to send BTC to the wallet for a payment that needs to be done right now, from my Localbitcoins wallet, it tells me that the Electrum wallet address is not valid or not correct.
I have doubled checked for any mistake in copying the Electrum wallet address, but it's all correct though on my Localbitcoins portal the address can't receive BTC.... Please I need urgent help to resolve this problem (anyone pls).
Localbitcoins probably does not support segwit bech32 addresses (this a standard from 2 years ago), which Electrum now uses by default.
For the meantime, you can create another wallet in Electrum,
Again, please complain to Localbitcoins.
