Correct site for electrum is electrum.org.

Download links on the scam site take you to a dropbox account. Better not install that stuff!

Warning: electrum[dot]is is a phishing site with a malware version of Electrum


Warning: electrum[dot]is is a phishing site with a malware version of Electrum

A customer of our Bitcoin center in Paris (La Maison du Bitcoin) wanted to recover his Electrum seed on a new PC. He searched for "electrum" on Google and the first result was electrum[dot]is.

He downloaded the hijacked version of Electrum from there, installed the app and recovered his seed.

Immediately after restoration, his full balance (~5 BTC) was sent to the hacker.

When installing software wallets, always be extremely careful of what you are doing.

Help on Getting Miner

Suppose I buy a miner that doesn’t “ship” until march 1st, does that mean there is a big chance the power it has won’t cover the cost of electricity? I don’t understand why the price would be about 1000 dollars cheaper than buying it today on amazon. I know even at 8.00/day 1 month would be about 800 dollars which doesn’t make up for the 1000 dollars you spend to get it early. How many are in a batch that are sold anyways? Is there some sort of hidden cost in getting from bitmain that I’m not seeing being in the usa. Thanks for the help ! via /r/BitcoinMining http://bit.ly/2jScESX
