Getting tokens

Learn how to acquire Mel-native tokens.
There are currently only a couple of ways of acquiring "mainnet" tokens:
  • Run a melminter instance - this rewards you with ERG, which can be immediately swapped for other tokens in the liquidity pools (e.g. MEL, SYM, etc.)
  • If you already have some MEL, SYM, or ERG, you can swap them for others via Melswap​
Testnet MEL can be arbitrarily created using the faucet functionality.
Our native tokens are currently not listed on any exchange yet. Be aware of possible scams!
