Electron Cash gives you what you love about the popular Electrum Bitcoin wallet, but for Bitcoin Cash. Control your own private keys. Back up your wallet easily with a mnemonic seed phrase. SPV technology provides high security without having to download the blockchain or run a full node.

We have forked the Electrum code repository and added the necessary components for operation with Bitcoin Cash. Some Multisig and hardware add-ons are not supported.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
