Yet another resource for developers to build on WAX is now live - the WAX Testnet. With the WAX Testnet, anyone can explore building on the WAX Blockchain for free. It’s “perfect for testing dApps, node setup, or just exploring the features of WAX,” says WAX sw/eden, the WAX Guild that built the WAX Testnet.
Visit the WAX Developer Hive Quickstart for the WAX Testnet to learn how to create Testnet accounts and deploy your smart contracts to the WAX Testnet, and visit the WAX Blockchain Environments section for WAX versions, URLs, and development environment information. You can also access WAX sw/eden’s resources for the WAX Testnet and create an account here.
Developers can benefit from using the WAX Testnet in a few ways:
- Free testing environment: The WAX Testnet provides devs with free test WAX Tokens, which means you can see how your dApp will work on WAX without having to pay for resources
- Migration made easy: If you have a dApp running on another blockchain, you can test the migration using the WAX Testnet before deploying on the WAX Blockchain mainnet
- Experiment with WAX services (coming soon): Integrate and test WAX features such as the WAX Cloud Wallet, WAX Decentralized Random Number Generator, and Simple Assets NFT smart contracts
