Important! DO NOT use Electrum.com Site

in bitcoin •  6 months ago

When people ask me for best desktop wallet i always say - Electrum. Its lightweight, has all options and full control of private keys + a lot more.

The official domain for the wallet is http://electrum.org yet today some hackers got ahold of .com version and are spreading malware that way. This is one of the most used wallets and im sure they will run ads and SEO to rank the domain.

To not be a clear case they call their wallet Electrum PRO so there cannot be easy copyright violation.

They did spend some money to get this domain and the website looks really nice, way better than original.

So please stay aware and spread the word to not use the .com domain despite what they write there.

Nice you must be from South Africa?
I use ethermask, the official wallet and I've send ethereum to my bitshares account before.

They said in Twitter that they are legit, but it is difficult to believe.

This is always a question

Talk about a sneaky way to scam people, especially since most people would probably head to a .com site over a .org site, falsely assuming that the .com was first and the .org was a knockoff/scam.

I really hope this just kind of fizzles out and doesn't become a large problem.

Hmmmm hackersspammers and scammers are just everywhere. Thanks so much for the info @kingscrown. You're a darling

.com or .net makes all the difference!

Thanks for sharing this valuable insight.
