Getting Started Developing on GoChain

Get some testnet tokens

The first thing you'll want to do is get some GO tokens for the GoChain testnet.

Create an account/address for your tokens by going here: https://explorer.gochain.io/wallet/create

Join our Testnet Telegram group and just ask for someone to send you some GO to the address you just created in step 1. Someone will usually send you some immediately.

They may send it to your TurboWallet account, but you can then easily send those to any address with /send 10 GO to 0xYOURADDRESS.

Deploy a contract

The easiest way to get started is to check out our How to Deploy a Smart Contract in 5 Minutes article. This will get you up and running on the GoChain testnet in no time.

Run your own local GoChain node for development/testing

If you'd like to run your own node to develop on, you can do that too. Go to our GitHub docs to get more information on running a node:
