Frequently asked questions

How do I use the Celo Alfajores faucet?

To request funds, enter your wallet address, and press “Send”. We support standard wallet addresses but not smart contracts. Don't forget to complete reCaptcha too.

How often can I use the faucet?

You can request 1 CELO every 24 hours.

What is a Celo Alfajores faucet?

Faucets offer developers testnet CELO to evaluate and refine applications prior to launching on the mainnet. Unlike many faucets that require information or have you wait in line for tokens, Tatum's faucet has no information requests.

What is testnet CELO? 

The Alfajores testnet is the testnet for the Celo. Testnets, in the blockchain context, are environments that mirror the main network but use valueless tokens, allowing developers to test their applications, run experiments, or debug issues without incurring real costs or risks. CELO, in this context, refers to the test tokens used on the Alfajores testnet. Developers can acquire these tokens from a faucet, and they're crucial for testing purposes on the network.

I didn't get my token!

The time required for receiving your test tokens can change due to potential network congestion or possibly our set gas amount being slightly lower than other miner-preferred transactions. If you haven't received your testnet tokens after several hours, kindly reach on our Discord server.

I have issues with Google Captcha

This issue often arises when using a VPN – it's a Google restriction we don't govern. We advise disabling your VPN in this scenario.
