Using Testnet

Learn how to use BSC Testnet which is needed to use Sandbox.

Connecting to Testnet

Being connected to Testnet is REQUIRED for Sandbox as it cannot be used on Mainnet.
Sandbox has to be used on Testnet instead of Mainnet. The Testnet is a network just like Mainnet except tokens have no real-world value and the network is used for testing. Instructions for connecting to the BSC Testnet can be found in this manual page. If the wallet you use is not listed please do some research on how to connect to Testnet yourself.


  1. 1.
    Click your profile icon, then find "Settings" and press it
  2. 2.
    Find "Advanced" and press it
  3. 3.
    Scroll until you find "Show test networks" and switch it on
  4. 4.
    In the network selector, find Binance Test Network and switch to it

BSC Testnet is missing

If the testnet option is missing, press "Add Network" instead and enter the following:
Network Name: Binance Testnet New RPC URL: ChainID: 97 Symbol: BNB Block Explorer URL:
The BSC Testnet provides several public nodes that Metamask (or your wallet) can use. Sometimes these nodes go down for maintenance (such as the one listed above). You can use this site to find which nodes are the healthiest right now and you can switch between them.
Adding Testnet manually
Once Testnet is added, repeat step 4 mentioned previously.


Unfortunately, Trustwallet does not support connecting to Testnet nodes. :( Use another wallet, such as Metamask.


Please see their official page on how to connect to Testnet nodes.

Other Wallet

Please do some research to find any official support page for you wallet on how to switch to Testnet.

Get BNB on BSC Testnet

Faucet: the BNB faucet is a convenient way to get test BNB to use on the Vsale sandbox, and other BSC testnet services. Because test BNB has no real world value, it is not easy to purchase directly so most people rely on the faucet. The faucet is available every 24 hours and while the amount of test BNB provided varies, it is currently distributing 0.5 BNB.
