Simple question,what bit os 32-64 does these wallets use,to be specific electrum as well as the others ? I'm new to this crypto stuff so i have a lot to learn, i'm starting almost at the bottom...Just above it.

  • May I ask why the memory address range is relevant for a wallet application? It can be compiled for both, no? – James C. Dec 2 '18 at 8:28

Electrum is an elaborate python script. It uses the same bitwidth as your python interpreter. If you have Py32 installed it is 32 bit, if you have Py64 it is 64 bit.

For windows users

The standalone EXE is 32-bit. If you need to run 64-bit in PE or some other non WoW environment, simple grab the python libraries from the site and run the python sources at 64 bit.

  • So on the Electrum site in the download section for windows 7 pro there is no reference to 32 or 64 bit ? I need a desktop version in 32-bit ? – qx1 Dec 9 '18 at 14:57
  • Ahh.... Windows... that wasn't clear. yes, the pre-packaged standalone EXE is 32 bit, so if that is what you need, you should be fine. – Dan Dec 9 '18 at 17:58
  • That answers it, ill let you know how it goes...Thanks – qx1 Dec 10 '18 at 22:22
