A few days ago, we wrote an article about the Dogecoin Electrum wallet. As there has been a lot of interest in this project, and not just from the Dogecoin community might I add, there have been a few hiccups occurring as of late. Nothing major though, but still worth to take a look at what happened exactly.
Over the past 48 hours, I have seen several reports popping up from users experiencing issues when connecting to the Dogecoin Electrum wallet. Ranging from issues with network synchronization to error messages, everything seemed to be in disarray for a little while.
A handful of people managed to access the Electrum wallet without any issues, but it wasn’t synchronized to the DOGE network for some odd reason. Even changing to other servers inside the Dogecoin Electrum wallet yielded very little to no success at all. By the looks of it, something has gone seriously wrong , and it turns out the server where the Electrum wallet is hosted, experienced database issues.
Whether this is due to the overwhelming success, or for a different reason entirely, the DOGE Electrum wallet’s server had gotten its database corrupted. Fixing this issue took several hours of sorting and restoring fields and arrays, but everything is working again as of this writing.
From the feedback I have received on social media and Reddit, a lot of Shibes are really liking the Electrum wallet for storing and spending DOGE. Understandably so, as this is a nice , simple and lightweight client which doesn’t require users to download the entire blockchain.
