The Electrum-FTC wallet is a fork of the Bitcoin Electrum wallet adapted to work with Feathercoin. To give a bit of context, the Bitcoin Electrum wallet was one of the very few bitcoin wallets that has been in the game since the very beginning and it is now the wallet of choice for many cryptocurrency enthusiasts, being one of the most trusted wallets available on the market.
