Getting Started

Choose your programming language:

Connect to the Testnet API

We recommended that you start your interactions with Shimmer on a testnet network. The testnet will allow you to safely get acquainted with the library, without the risk of losing any funds if you make a mistake along the way. You can use this Shimmer Testnet API load balancer:

Explore the Network

You can use the Shimmer Tangle Explorer to view transactions and data stored in the Tangle.

Get Test Tokens

In order to properly test value-based transactions on testnet network, you are going to need some tokens. You can get some testnet tokens through the Shimmer Faucet.
