You should be able to solder that wire to your ESC but you want to be sure to use a 60/40 type solder with rosin core!
It also depends on what type of solder iron that are you using to solder with. I have a 40 watt ungar which is out of business and I also have a 65 watt Hakkio which is one of the best out there!
good luck

The "silver" wire is also copper. Each strand is very finely tinned, so no problem!
