Bounty for implementing PART-compatible version of Electrum wallet

About Electrum

Electrum is an open-source light Bitcoin wallet with some interesting advanced features, which are the main reason behind this bounty:

1. Multi-signature wallets :key:

Electrum supports multi-sig wallets, which greatly increases security of your funds. We already have a Copay mobile/desktop wallet with multi-sig support, but it lacks one big feature, compared to Electrum:

2. Hardware wallet support :lock:

…Electrum also plays nicely with HW wallets, namely Trezor One/T & Ledger Nano S/X (and more).


Combining these two features along with cold staking support, with Electrum for Particl, we could once again raise a bar for crypto security. Imagine having 2 or more hardware wallets, all used in one multi-sig wallet with coins, passively cold staking via our own node or a staking pool.

If this bounty would be claimed, bear in mind that we will need to run a network of PART Electrum servers, so we’ll definitely need volunteers to do so.
