What is test-MATIC?

TEST MATIC token is the ERC20 token used on Mumbai to pay for transaction fees (abbreviated as MATIC) and, consequently, for deploying a DAO, in the same way that test-ETH is used on e.g. Goerli testnet.

Important info: please note that the symbol of the test-MATIC is "MATIC", the same as for mainnet-matic.

How to get test-MATIC?

To get test-MATIC, you can go to the Polygon Mumbai Faucet:

  • Network select Mumbai

  • Select token MATIC Token

If you are using Metamask, it is your wallet account address.
