How to Get Testnet Tokens:

Note1: The testnet tokens may disappear from your account if we do a deployment for new updates. This is a non-issue, you will just need to follow these instructions below to get test token to continue with the testing.

Note2: There is a limit of two requests daily to get test tokens per wallet address.

1. If you do not have the polkadot.js extension installed, you will need to scroll down to the "How to Connect Your Wallet" section and follow those instructions first. To get test tokens, join the discord channel: https://discord.com/invite/buKKx4dySW

2. Go to the ‘faucet-testnet’ channel. Note that you will only be able to make up to two requests every 24 hours.

3. Type !drip and your polkadot.js wallet address. Example: !drip 5Fjzxr4yGXFdBAk5S7ehN8ngvixXySSDnmhQ2z7BC69Qkjkl
