What is NIM mining?
A public list is created with all the addresses and amounts of the business operations. Every minute this list is updated so that all operations are consolidated and form a block. Then the block is validated by consensus, the values of the list are modified and in this way the chain of blocks that contains the data of all the commercial operations that have occurred is built.
