Token mining? I'm lost


I keep seeing people mention credit or token mining, I see it mentioned that they enabled it, I’m still pretty new, and I love to learn, so when I see something I don’t know I like to fix that real fast lol. What are the benefits of token mining? I didn’t see anything about mining in my settings, am I missing something? Help lolol


Credit mining feature was highly experimental and never took off. It was about downloading popular torrents speculatively and trying to get positive token balance through seeding them. We removed it in 7.5
The most efficient method to get tokens now is to just let Tribler run for awhile. It will work as a relay for other users and you will get credits automatically.
