                        <p>Monero may be purchased on an <a href="/community/merchants/">exchange</a> with fiat or other cryptocurrencies. An alternate way of acquiring Monero is via <a href="https://getmonero.org/get-started/mining/">mining</a>, the computationally-complex process whereby transactions are immutably recorded on the blockchain.</p>
