QuickNode wants to remove as many blockers as possible for developers working on the next wave of Web3 applications.
Our team was tired of scrounging, begging, and borrowing testnet tokens just to keep the momentum going on a build. And we know many developers already using QuickNode feel the same way. That's why we're super excited to introduce QuickNode Multi-Chain Faucet — a completely free multi-chain testnet faucet for all the chains and networks we support!
Before innovative dApps and state-of-the-art smart contracts make it to the end users, they go through many iterations — often on testnets where developers experiment and troubleshoot their builds without having to pay the costly fees to deploy on mainnet.
The only issue is that to conduct a transaction on a testnet; you'll need testnet tokens, which aren't readily and freely available whenever you need them.
Imagine patiently setting up the elaborate game of Mouse Trap (the one with the little diving guy and bucket that tips over), only to realize that you don't have a marble to set everything in motion. Not so fun, we know.
Enter QuickNode Multi-Chain Faucet! With our new faucet, we give developers access to tokens on as many chains as we possibly could. Use these tokens to create test transactions on the associated blockchain, such as contract deployments, transferring funds, and debugging failed transactions.
Launch your projects on mainnets confidently, knowing that your contracts are bug-free and secure!
What is a crypto faucet?
Thought to have originated on the Bitcoin network, a faucet is a user-friendly web app that distributes small amounts of crypto tokens in exchange for completing a small task — usually something like a social share, quiz, or survey.
The first bitcoin faucet gave out 5 BTC per day (this was 2010, so that wasn't worth a whole lot). Faucets can be a great way to slowly, but consistently distribute tokens. With the number of new crypto users onboarded today, it would be tough to make much profit off a faucet, but for a developer looking for testnet tokens, they're a fantastic tool.
How the QuickNode Multi-Chain Faucet works
QuickNode's faucet is unique because it's a one-stop shop for multiple chains. You can load up on Ethereum, Solana, Polygon, Optimism, Arbitrum, and BNB testnet tokens, all from the same faucet!
Another distinctive feature of the QuickNode Multi-Chain Faucet is that you don't need to complete any tasks to get your drip. However, if you decide to share our faucet with a Tweet, we'll give you a 10x bonus. If you prefer to keep the tool all to yourself, no worries, you'll still get testnet tokens just for clicking a button.
Turn on the faucet
As far as we know, this is the first of its kind multi-chain faucet with token drips for Ethereum, Solana, Polygon, BSC, Arbitrum, and many more testnets. We're on a serious mission to empower Web3 builders and developers by giving them the tools and infrastructure needed to build innovative dApps!
QuickNode is building infrastructure to support the future of Web3. Since 2017, we've worked with hundreds of developers and companies, helping scale dApps and providing high-performance access to 16+ blockchains.
