An overview guide describing how to obtain Kovan test tokens and participate in the Teller Protocol's testnet
Developers are able to leverage the Teller protocol to build their own innovative DeFi products. The protocol is designed in a way that is feature-rich enough to power large-scale applications, yet simple enough for a weekend hack.
The easiest way to test out the Teller platform and play around with it is to first obtain test USDC, ETH, or DAI tokens through either a ‘faucet’ website or the Compound app. This can be done on Kovan, allowing users to access our testnet.
Once connected, go to the test facucet link from the navbar on the left:
