I want to create new wallet using Electrum-apis. I have gone through the documentation given here but didn't found any method to create a new wallet or an address.

Can someone please clarify how I can achieve this?

  • That's the Electrum server API. Electrum does not have an API. Wallet creation is client-side, as a result the Electrum API won't help you. – MCCCS Jul 31 '18 at 8:37
  • Ohh.. So if wallet creation is client side, is there any known api available that can help me create Electrum wallet in my application? – Gagan Jul 31 '18 at 8:40

There is nothing special about an electrum wallet. The electrum API will allow you to query address balances, and build transactions, for any address, regardless of how they were created.

Electrum itself does use a special key derivation scheme, but that does not affect the usability from an API point of view. If you are using electrum servers as a backend, you should be able to generate wallets using any BIP39 library in your language of choice, and simply querying with the resulting addresses.
