AION Faucet

Faucet: get Aion coins for testing your dApp on the Aion testnet.

What is it?

Faucet is where you can acquire your Testnet AION Coins - AION Coins - The native asset of the Aion blockchain. . These coins are for development purposes on the blockchain network - meaning you can't use these on our Mainnet chain.

Why use it?

You'll need some balance of AION if you wish to deploy and interact with smart contracts on AION, testing infrastructure tools, or playing around with DApps. This is useful such that experimentation with development or testing purposes are costly :money-with-wings+:.
