The Tezos Foundation, the overseer of the Tezos blockchain protocol and ecosystem, announced today the release of a faucet for the Tezos mainnet. This faucet allows developers and users to request Tezos tokens (tez) for development and testing purposes.
To acquire tez for development and testing purposes, enter a Tezos address and complete the captcha prompt at faucet.tezos.com. The faucet releases 0.01 tez every 10 seconds.
“We offer this faucet to the Tezos community for testing and development purposes. However, this is a development faucet and we advise that no one should depend on this faucet’s continued availability. We may turn off or change the faucet’s parameters in the future.”
