Complete Treasure Maps
To easiest way to get your hands on a lot of Hacksilver is by Finding the Treasure Maps and digging up the loot.

They can be quite easy to break and offer small rewards, but if you find them, you can open them up to get anywhere between 500-1,500 Hacksilver for yourself. The stone chests which need to be pried open will have bigger rewards.
Looting enemies will reward you with Hacksilver as well. Apart from that, you will be able to find them randomly throughout the world in areas such as caves and ruins. These piles are quite small and will usually have between 10-1,000 Hacksilver.
By Defeating an Enemy for the first Time
Lastly, remember that whenever you defeat a creature for the first time, you will get a small reward for it. The reward will be in both XP and Hacksilver. For this method, you can expect to get between 100-1,000 Hacksilver for Defeating an Enemy for the first time.
Sell unused Items and equipment
Selling goods, relics, and leftover gears is another method to swiftly acquire Hacksilver. It is critical that you collect everything you come across along the route because you may come across objects and relics that you may sell to Brok or Sindri for a substantial sum of Hacksilver.
