The Sokol Testnet provides an application testing environment as well as a test network for POA validator candidates. More information about Sokol.
DApp testing requires SPOA, the native token for Sokol. SPOA is available through the Sokol faucet. If you require a large amount of SPOA for testing, please contact us.
SPOA is distributed in increments of 1 SPOA. Due to reports of unscrupulous users (users selling SPOA which is a test token with no actual value) we have added measures to make obtaining large amounts of SPOA difficult.
Users are now limited to requesting 1 SPOA per day and are required to add a phone number for SMS verification.
The faucet is integrated with BlockScout Explorer. To start go to https://blockscout.com/poa/sokol/faucet
