Test Before You Try
Crypto can be scary for new users. While crypto allows users to be in full control of their assets and transact in a trustless manner, transactions are irreversible so mistakes can be costly.
Umee aims to make DeFi as easy and accessible as possible, and encourages new users to test out features on Umee's testnet before using real money.
What is a Testnet?
Who Should Use a Testnet?

How To Use Umee's Testnet

All of the guides provided in this "Using the Web App" section will work on both Umee's testnet and mainnet.
Umee's testnet web app can be accessed at testnet.umee.cc​
Unlike Umee's main network, Umee's test network will not appear in your Umee blockchain compatible wallet by default. In order to add test networks to your wallet you will need to go to testnet.umee.cc and follow the instructions found in "Connecting to the App."

Claiming Testnet UMEE Tokens

In order to try out Umee's testnet users will need testnet UMEE tokens. Testnet UMEE tokens are simply a valueless version of native UMEE tokens that are needed to pay for transaction costs on Umee's testnet. Testnet tokens can be claimed for free on Umee's Discord server.

To Claim Testnet UMEE Tokens:

Open your Umee wallet browser extension and select the network dropdown list. Choose "UMEE Umeemania" from the dropdown.
​
Identify your Umee wallet address at the top of the wallet and click on it to copy it to your clipboard.
​
​
Select the #umeemania-faucet channel and enter the following command (remove the "<>") using your Umee wallet address you have just copied:
!request <wallet address here>
​
You will now see a testnet UMEE token balance in your wallet.

Claiming Testnet ETH

To learn how to bridge UMEE tokens or use Umee's Ethereum app within a testnet environment, users will need to claim testnet ETH in order to transact on Ethereum's Goerli test network.

To Claim Testnet ETH:

Open your Ethereum wallet (MetaMask) browser extension and select the network dropdown list. Select the "Show/hide test networks" button at the top of the dropdown.
​
Make sure that the "Show test networks" button is switched ON. Return to the network dropdown list and select "Goerli Test Network."
​
Click on your wallet address at the top of your wallet's browser extension to copy it to your clipboard.
Ethereum wallet addresses start with the "0x..." prefix.
​
Use a public Goerli ETH faucet to claim testnet ETH for free.
Umee does not provide a Goerli ETH faucet. Please be respectful and only claim the Goerli ETH that you need to transact on Umee's Ethereum testnet app.
Depending on the faucet being used, users may be asked to perform various steps to prove they are not a bot.
