The TON blockchain stores transactions and smart contracts in two networks: a test network, named
testnet, and a real network, named
mainnet. The testnet is used for... testing. 😅 Developers use it to test their bots, apps, and platforms before releasing them to the mainnet.
If you need Toncoins in the testnet, you can get them by using the faucet @testgiver_ton_bot Telegram bot. Simply open the bot, send the
/get command, solve the captcha, enter your wallet address and you'll receive 2 TON. If you need to create a wallet, read this other post.
What can you do with those test tokens? If you're a dev, use them to test the payments in your TelePay app, via the testnet, without using real money. That way, if your app is not ready for production, you won't lose money paying fees to the blockchain.
