How to “Mine” XEM



Do you want to mine XEM? Unfortunately, a POI platform like NEM doesn’t allow for mining the same way a POW platform does. NEM uses harvesting which works from an accounts importance, but if you are still interested in POW style mining with video cards or ASICs what you can do, however, is mine other altcoins and move them to XEM at their exchange rates automatically.

Hi Saul,

Is this article still relevant? Stil worthwhile?


@CryptoJamal If you asking about mining. You can’t mine XEM. You can use harvest (fees from blocks) if you have over 10000 XEM vested balance.
Article tells about that you can mine other crypto and exchange mined crypto to XEM on exchange.


@pawelm, thank you for your reply my friend. Harvesting sounds better then mining :slight_smile:
10000 XEM is a lot of money. I only have 580 XEM ^^ Hope one day they will be 10 dollar each…
