What is a Faucet?

A Faucet is a website that allows users to get free #testnet tokens for different blockchains. Bear in mind that testnet tokens have no real monetary value and are used to test and interact with the network.


Some faucets require you to complete tasks to get the tokens, while others will give you free testnet tokens every 12/24 hours just by connecting your wallet and requesting tokens. They are designed to be simple!

Each blockchain will have its own faucet for its Test Network (#Testnet) and users of that network can use those tokens to explore and interact with dApps on the network. Let me give you an example of how a Faucet could be used:


Let’s use the upcoming Cashmere Labs Airdrop as an example. It requires users to have Testnet tokens so you can perform cross-chain swaps. Cashmere Labs in Testnet mode allows us to swap between any test network.

Eventually we will be able to use the Mainnet, but for now, we can swap from the Arbitrum Testnet to the BNB Chain Testnet, for example. Feel free to check out our Youtube tutorial which can be found here – https://youtu.be/43fSqazX6bA
