Testnet Faucet

The Testnet Faucet is a service that provides test ada (tAda) to users of the Cardano testnets. These tokens have no value, but they enable users to experiment with Cardano testnet features without spending real ada on the Mainnet. You can use test ada to mint native tokens, to play around with Cardano wallets or to learn how to operate a stake pool.
