Bitcoin wallet

Electrum is a lightweight Bitcoin client, based on a client-server protocol. It supports Simple Payment Verification (SPV) and deterministic key generation from a seed. Your secret keys are encrypted and are never sent to other machines/servers. Electrum does not download the Bitcoin blockchain.


Install the latest version of electrum as follows:

guix install electrum

Or install a particular version:

guix install electrum@4.4.6

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
