Deploy and Interact with Smart Contracts

Fund your testnet account

If you are using one of the testnets you can just use the the toolkit to get testnet tokens.

  1. Go to the IOTA EVM or ShimmerEVM Testnet Toolkit.
  2. Connect your MetaMask wallet by clicking "Connect Wallet" or paste an EVM address.
  3. Select the account you want to receive testnet tokens.
  4. Click "Send funds" to get testnet tokens.

You can now deploy and interact with smart contracts. Utilize popular development tools and frameworks, such as Hardhat, or Remix, to build, test, and deploy your smart contracts.
