For Users

When joining a new network, users may have the issue of not having the native token to pay for gas fees for their transactions. Some blockchains use faucets to provide these.

On Avalanche, users obtain these funds by bridging over $75 worth of assets onto the Avalanche network with the Avalanche Bridge™. When doing so, users will be airdropped .1 AVAX to help facilitate early transactions. Users will not receive the airdrop if they are bridging from the Avalanche network.

For Developers

  1. Developers can obtain testnet AVAX if they have any amount of AVAX on mainnet. No coupon is necessary with this method.

  2. Developers can obtain the appropriate role on which provides a coupon.

  3. Lastly, admins and moderators on the official Discord can provide testnet AVAX if developers are unable to obtain it from the above two options.

NOTE: These funds have no actual value and only work for the Fuji Network or a Subnet's testnet.
