The Evmos Testnet is a decentralized blockchain network that runs parallel to the Mainnet. It allows developers to test and deploy their decentralized applications (dApps) in a safe and secure environment without the risk of losing real funds. It is run by Validators using the same software as on the Evmos Mainnet, which means it is built using the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and supports the Ethereum toolchain. This makes it compatible with a vast ecosystem of existing Ethereum-based applications and tools.

Using the Evmos Testnet provides several benefits for dApp developers. Firstly, it enables them to test and refine their smart contracts and dApps in a sandbox environment without the risk of making costly mistakes. Developers can experiment with different use cases and scenarios, simulate various network conditions, and stress test their applications to ensure they are scalable and resilient. Secondly, the Evmos Testnet provides a community-driven and collaborative platform for developers to share knowledge, best practices, and code. This can help developers to speed up their development process and tap into a wealth of resources and expertise.

Find out below how to connect to Testnet and request testnet tokens from the Faucet to start developing. Note, that tokens on Testnet don’t have actual value, so that you don’t need to worry about loosing funds.

We hosted our testnet API endpoints here and it uses Swagger.


The Evmos Testnet Faucet distributes small amounts of tEvmos to anyone who can provide a valid testnet address for free. Request funds from the faucet either by using the Keplr Wallet or follow the instructions on this page.


Follow the Metamask, Keplr or Keyring guides for more info on how to setup your wallet account.

Request Testnet tokens

Once you are signed in to the Keplr extension, visit the Faucet to request tokens for the testnet. Click the Request Funds with Keplr button. Then approve the both following pop ups Chain Add Request and Request Connection to add the Evmos testnet chain (evmos_9001-4) to Keplr and approve the connection.

chain add request

After approval, you can see a transaction confirmation informing you that tEvmos have been successfully transferred to your Evmos address on the testnet.


Note: only Ethereum compatible addresses (i.e eth_secp256k1 keys) are supported on Evmos.

chain add request

Alternatively you can also fill in your address on the input field in Bech32 (evmos1...) or Hex (0x...) format.


If you use your Bech32 address, make sure you input the account address (evmos1...) and NOT the validator operator address (evmosvaloper1...)

faucet site

View your account balance either by clicking on the Keplr extension or by using the Testnet Explorer.


Note: Keplr might not display the amount of tEvmos transferred by the faucet, as it might be smaller than the number of decimals displayed in the Keplr extension.

Rate limits


All addresses MUST be authenticated using ReCAPTCHA before requesting tokens.

To prevent the faucet account from draining the available funds, the Evmos testnet faucet imposes a maximum number of requests for a period of time. By default, the faucet service accepts 1 request per day per address. You can request

tEvmos from the faucet for each address only once every 24h. If you try to request multiple times within the 24h cooldown phase, no transaction will be initiated. Please try again in 24 hours.


For each request, the faucet transfers 1 tEvmos to the given address.
