Symbol Harvesting: Video + Troubleshooting Guide

To be able to start delegated harvesting, you have to keep a few things in mind.

You need to hold a minimum of 10,000 XYM (in your Symbol Wallet).

Your importance score must be greater than 0 before you start harvesting.

If you’ve recently transferred the minimum amount (10k XYM) to your wallet, you’ll have to wait 12 hours for your importance score to improve/update, and only after your importance score is greater than 0 you can start harvesting.

You can check your importance score in your Symbol Desktop Wallet (as shown in the picture above) or on http://explorer.symbolblockchain.io

(i) I suggest that you start harvesting from your Desktop wallet because the Mobile Wallet has a bug that might not show the ACTIVE status.

Now that your account is ready for harvesting and you hold 10,000+ XYM, your importance score is greater than 0, we can start the whole process.

1. Add a custom node like http://xym.farm:3000 or select one from the list and click on “Link all keys”.
2. Read the information and click on “CONFIRM”.
3. Enter your password and click on “CONFIRM”.
4. Now the keys are linking, so you need to wait.
5. Once the keys are linked, you can click on “REQUEST HARVESTING”.
6. Enter your password and click on “CONFIRM”.
7. Enter your password again and click on “CONFIRM”.
8. Requesting access, so please wait.
9. If your status is ACTIVE, it means you’re all set.

Depending on your account’s importance score and the node’s free harvesting slots, your request might not be granted.
Also, please note that nodes may remove accounts from their harvesting slots at any time.
In these cases you need to switch to a different node and repeat the Delegated Harvesting activation process. Transaction fees paid for the activation will not be refunded.
If you entered a custom node URL, the Harvesting status shown may not be accurate on all your devices.
