Radix has created a “faucet” service that distributes a selection of tokens, including XRD and some other fun tokens that you can test and play with on betanet. You will need XRD tokens to conduct any transactions on the network, so start here!
To get some of these tokens, simply go to the “Balances'' page in the wallet and click the Get Free Betanet Tokens button. Shortly you should see a selection of tokens appear in your wallet that can be freely sent around to others on betanet. The XRD you receive can also be used to test staking and unstaking once it is enabled in the wallet.
Your wallet will initially show zero balance like below. To receive test tokens click Get Free Betanet Tokens.
Your account will now be funded with free tokens. Your balance will increase each time you click Get Free Betanet Tokens.
