All About Lightning Electrum
Bitcoin also split in August, creating the "Bitcoin Cash" (BCC). Bitcoin holders have been granted the same amount of BCC and still trade separately. The assets of those who held Bitcoin at the time of the split increased.
The outcome is largely a matter of calculation, as this split in November will be unlikely to have a difficult reset set, and 2M and 1M will have to face a full-scale mining loss. Mining on the BCC would probably be more profitable. In this context, BCC will become the safest chain.
Another danger is that not all exchanges support BCC, so the exchange may have no research on BCC replay attacks, and if you propose BTC from an exchange that doesn't protect against replay attacks, if you copy the broadcast of the deal to the BCC network, you can earn extra money from the BCC on the exchange (there will be a lot of hackers staring at this). This means that hackers will get a significant number of BCCs from exchanges around the world that do not support BCC, or steal BCC by extracting BCC. (The front car is that when ETH and ETC split, a lot of exchanges were replayed and a lot of ETCs were stolen)
Digital Wallet Electrum was hacked, losing 250 bitcoins.
Use Google Authenticator. Coin ring's old leeks should be no strangers to Google validators. Google Authenticator, a dynamic password tool launched by Google. After setting up Google Verification, each time you need to enter a password action, you need to enter the dynamic password of the Google Authenticator to verify the pass, which is equivalent to an additional layer of protection. The advantage of Google Authenticator is that dynamic passwords are refreshed in real time every minute and can be used without networking.

Electrum is a world-renowned Bitcoin light wallet with a long history of multi-signature support and a very broad user base, many of which like to use Electrum as a cold wallet or multi-signature wallet for Bitcoin or even USDT (Omni). Based on this usage scenario, Electrum is used less frequently on the user's computer. The current version of Electrum is 3.3.8, and previous versions of 3.3.4 are known to have "message defects" that allow an attacker to send an "update prompt" through a malicious ElectrumX server. This "update tip" is very confusing to the user, and if you follow the prompt to download the so-called new version of Electrum, you may be tricked. According to user feedback, because of this attack, stolen bitcoins are in the four digits or more.
