Register for the Akash Testnet
About the testnet
The Akash testnet consists of the Akash marketplace running on multiple nodes in multiple geographies, connected to providers with server capacity in those geographies. The number of regions covered and the available capacity is growing continuously. Full testnet usage documentation may be found here.
Access to the testnet is free. Once you register, Akash will transfer a small number of testnet tokens to your wallet, which you may use to pay for testnet deployments.
Please note that testnet tokens are only usable on the Akash testnet and have no market value.
