Electrum Pivx Wallet-Logo


PIVX is the first cryptocurrency to implement a directly spendable Zerocoin protocol and has also developed and implemented an industry-first Zerocoin-capable Proof of Stake consensus algorithm, called zPoS, that allows complete privacy of the balance and transactions while staking.

Electrum Pivx Wallet, also known as “lite Pivx wallets”, provide a variety of benefits over the standard Pivx wallet. Electrum Pivx wallet offload much of the normal processing that a wallet must do up to servers that we run in the cloud, making them faster, in many cases more secure, and much lighter on your computer to run..

Frequently Asked Questions


Is there a version of Electrum Pivx Wallet for Android?
Android is not currently supported. If you are looking for a mobile wallet, check out LoafWallet, Jaxx or Coinomi.
Does Electrum Pivx Wallet support Segwit?
Yes.
What is a “seed”?
Electrum Pivx Wallet uses a 128-bit random seed to generate your private keys. The seed can be represented as a 12-word mnemonic code. You do not need to perform regular backups, because your wallet can be recovered from the seed that you can memorize or write on paper.

Seed Example

What should I do with my old Pivx addresses and wallet when switching to Electrum Pivx Wallet?
The best way to switch to Electrum Pivx Wallet is to send all the Pivxs you have on your old wallet to one of the addresses on your Electrum Pivx Wallet. This way you'll have all your Pivxs secured with your seed. Older versions of Electrum Pivx Wallet could import private keys from another client, but then you had to backup those keys separately, as they could not be restored by the Electrum Pivx Wallet seed.
What does it mean to “freeze” an address?
When you freeze an address, the funds in that address will not be used for sending Pivxs. You cannot send Pivxs if you don't have enough funds in non-frozen addresses.
Where is my wallet file located?
A default wallet file called default_wallet is created under the /wallets folder when you first run the application. On Windows, this folder is located in \Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Local\Electrum Pivx Wallet. On all other operating systems, it is located in ~/.Electrum Pivx Wallet.
What is the gap limit?
The gap limit is the maximum number of consecutive unused addresses in your deterministic sequence of addresses. Electrum Pivx Wallet uses a gap limit to stop looking for addresses. This is set to 5 by default, so the client generates new addresses until 5 unused addresses are found.
