What is Lace Pre Prod?
Lace PreProd is the current version of Lace available to the public on the PreProduction Testing Environment. Lace PreProd mirrors the upcoming mainnet interface and has identical functionality.
On Lace PreProd, users can experiment with test tokens, new features, and code to get to know the interface and features, as well as provide feedback prior to the mainnet launch.
What is test ada (tADA)?
Test ada are the native assets on the Cardano PreProd network. They allow you to try out all the different Lace features that require digital assets in a safe environment, without putting your own digital assets at risk.
How do I get test ada (tADA)?
You can get your test ada by going to the faucet.
What is the faucet and how do I use it?
A faucet is a web-based service that provides free tokens for testnets. The Cardano testnets faucet can be found here.
To use the faucet, you first need a payment address. Click the <Receive> button on the upper right hand side of the Lace extension to copy the address to your clipboard.
Access the faucet here and follow the on-screen instructions: https://docs.cardano.org/cardano-testnet/tools/faucet/
Make sure you select the Preprod Testnet on the environment option field.
Each time you use the faucet, you will get 10,000 test ada. You can only use the faucet once per day.
Can I get test NFTs?
No, test NFTs are not provided to Lace PreProd users. However, you can mint your own NFTs in the PreProd environment and send to other Cardano PreProd addresses. See here for more info and head to NMKR to mint your own NFTs.
What can I do with my test tokens?
- Send and receive test tokens to and from any PreProd address
- Stake your test ada to stake pools on the PreProduction environment and receive rewards in test ada for participating in the network
- Store, send, receive, and view your PreProd NFTs to PreProd addresses
What is the difference between networks?
Testnets provide sandboxed environments, allowing users to trial products and test their core functionality prior to mainnet deployment.
PreProduction (PreProd): This network resembles the production (mainnet) environment and tests release functionality prior to being deployed on mainnet.
Preview: This is a network for features that are still under development and which might break the chain requiring it to be respun.
Mainnet: This is the live network, also referred to as the production network. It features official functionality releases and all transactions are made using real digital assets on the main chain.
