Intro to Testnet

The Dash testing network

Overview

Testnet is the Dash testing network used for experimentation and evaluation of Dash Core and Dash Platform features.

As a testing network, Testnet may be subject to occasional updates and changes that break backwards compatibility. Please visit this page to see current testnet status.

Network Details

Infrastructure

Dash Core Group provides the core Testnet infrastructure consisting of 300 masternodes running Dash Core along with the platform services that provide the decentralized API (DAPI) and storage (Drive) functionality.

Testnet also includes a block explorer for the core blockchain and a test Dash faucet that dispenses funds to users/developers experimenting on the network.

Features

With this initial testnet release of the core Dash Platform components, the features available on the platform include:

  • Dash Platform Name Service (DPNS): a data contract and supporting logic for name registration
  • Identities: creation of identities
  • Names: creation of DPNS names that link to an identity
  • Data Contracts: creation of data contracts
  • Documents: used to store/update/delete data associated with data contracts
  • DashPay: a data contract enableing a decentralized application that creates bidirectional direct settlement payment channels between identities and supports contact (name) based payments
