Frequently Asked Questions How does Electrum work? My transaction has been unconfirmed for a restore bitcoin wallet time. Can I import private keys from other Bitcoin clients? Can I sweep private keys from other Bitcoin clients?
Where is my wallet file located? Can I do bulk payments with Electrum? Can Electrum create and sign raw transactions? Electrum freezes when I try to send bitcoins.
How can I pre-generate new addresses? The seed is a random phrase that is used to generate your private keys. Your wallet can be entirely recovered from its seed. The seed phrase created by Electrum has 132 bits of entropy. It is not possible to recover your password. However, you can restore your wallet from its seed phrase and choose a new password. If you lose both your password and your seed, there is no way to recover your money.
This feature is enabled by default in recent versions of Electrum. Eventually, your transaction will either be confirmed or cancelled. A CPFP is a new transaction that pays a high fee in order to compensate for the small fee of its parent transaction. It can be done by the recipient of the funds, or by the sender, if the transaction has a change output. A window will popup with the unsigned transaction.
When you freeze an address, the funds in that address will not be used for sending bitcoins. You cannot send bitcoins if you don’t have enough funds in the non-frozen addresses. Your seed and private keys are encrypted using AES-256-CBC. This is done in order to minimize the amount of time during which sensitive information is unencrypted in your computer’s memory.
