|I'm using electrum. I want to create hundreds of addresses, but because I'm a little paranoid I don't know how I will do it safely. I have already generated addresses but I'm thinking for buying bitcoins on the long-term.|
1) Why does verification of electrum proves electrum won't generate private keys that may be already known? Like a hacker put them so he can steal the coins later. It doesn't require internet connection. The private keys are simply not random. I know that it is open source, but I don't get how with verification, I have to be 101% sure that I'm safe.
2) If they write the SHA256 of the exe on electrum.org and I test it that it has the same SHA256 result, I have the clear program right? No hackers could face that step?
3) Can I deside my randomness' fate? Can I put the ones and zeros by myself somehow? Do you have any scripts on github so I can check the code?
4) Can I somehow generate thousands of different addresses on electrum? (And export them in csv). I see that it only generates 10-15 by default.
