What is a testnet?

Testnets act like a sandbox where developers can test out features before they go live. They are a proving ground for your blockchain and application where you can discover bugs and any unforeseen glitches by testing and experimenting without risk to real funds or the mainnet.

Why do I need a testnet for my App Chain?

It's essential to run plenty of demos to test for bugs before launching your project. To do this, dApps need a testnet (and testnet tokens) readily available for users to interact with and send to and from wallet addresses.

What is a testnet token faucet?

Faucet tools allow users to provide their public addresses and receive tokens to interact with your testnet. A testnet token faucet is necessary for developers to build (and test) on an App Chain.

How does the testnet faucet work?

Anyone with access to your testnet will be able to visit the faucet and provide their wallet address to receive testnet tokens. Spending these tokens on transactions and gas, they can interact with your App Chain testnet — making sure things work as intended. This helps bring your projects one step closer to mainnet launch.
