Public Testnet

We are delighted to invite you to take part in an exciting journey as we embark on Phase 3 of our Testnet. This crucial stage is a testament to our relentless pursuit of developing a robust, efficient, and user-centric protocol, and we couldn't have done it without community members like you.

This document is your comprehensive guide to the exciting world of the Arkeo public testnet, where your valuable contributions can make a significant impact. Let's get started!

🎯 Purpose and Goals of the Testnet The Testnet serves as a vibrant

platform to test the fundamental functionality of our core protocol. This includes validating network operations, data providers, and dapps that utilize the data. However, note that we're saving the airdrop for a separate testnet, specifically created to test that code.

⏳ Testnet Duration Our Testnet is designed to operate for at least one

month, but the joy of discovery may extend this period. Keep in mind, we might reset and launch a new network if our dedicated team deems it necessary for optimization purposes.

πŸ€” Need Support or Have Questions? Our supportive community is always

ready to help! If you have questions, concerns, creative ideas, or bug reports, please join our Discord server. For more focused discussions, #validator-testing and #data-testing are your go-to channels.

🀝 Expected Conduct We kindly ask all testers to contribute in good faith,

keeping the best interests of the network and the project at heart. If you stumble upon a bug or discover an exploit during your exploration, please alert our developers via Discord.

🎩 Testing Roles There are three primary roles you can take for a spin in

our beta:

  1. Validator: Help the network commit new blocks to the Arkeo blockchain by running a testnet validator.

  2. Data Provider: Run full nodes of various blockchains, allowing others to contract your infrastructure and pay for access (or offer it for free).

  3. Dapps: If you're developing applications that require connections to blockchain daemons, we'd love your input on this role.

Whatever your role, you should find what you need to get started in our documentation: - but if you can’t find what you are looking for please reach out in discord and let us know how we can help.

πŸ’° Acquiring Testnet Tokens To jump into testing, you'll need testnet

tokens. At present, we support a command-line tool, not wallets. Learn how to install this CLI tool and create a wallet on our GitHub repository. Once you've got your "tarkeo" address, request tokens through this Google form.
