The faucet is a web-based service that provides free tokens to users of the testnet. The tokens enable users to experiment with Cardano features without spending ada cryptocurrency on the mainnet.
You will need some initial funds to start testing stake pools and delegating stake on the testnet network. The faucet component provides you with a sufficient amount of test ada, and the associated stake, to get started.
You access the testnet faucet using a form below, where you need to enter an address to receive the funds.
