Bug Description

electrum - Easy to use bitcoin client

Rationale: Bitcoin has gained significant adoption and would benefit from being supported as soon as possible by a stable, proven client such as Electrum, in addition to Bitcoin-QT. Electrum can be installed manually but making it part of the distribution beginning next cycle would make it easier to install, update and test, and would provide a choice for anyone wanting to use Bitcoin.

This package was accepted in Debian testing on Sept. 12.

Source package: electrum
Version to sync: 1.8-1
From: Debian testing (main)

For more details see: http://packages.qa.debian.org/e/electrum.html
Project website: http://electrum.org

Feature freeze is in effect since Aug. 29th.

This package is not in Ubuntu yet.

Thank you, I've updated the original report. There are many reasons to want to have another Bitcoin application in Ubuntu sooner than later, I tried to summarize.
