Create and trade markets on Vega Testnet
Vega’s Testnet is live. Create permissionless, professional-grade, margined futures markets and make fully decentralised, end-to-end trades using Ropsten assets on an Ethereum bridge. Download and run a Vega Wallet.
You can also join our community forum to pose questions to the team, find out what we've been up to, and share your own ideas of what the future of finance looks like.
You can find technical and non-technical documentation for Vega at docs.testnet.vega.xyz. It includes walk-throughs on how to use the APIs, reference docs for GraphQL, gRPC, and REST, as well as answers to questions about how the protocol works.
Running a node on the Vega Testnet
In the current phase, the Vega development team are running all nodes in the Vega Testnet. This allows the team to rapidly deploy new versions and maintain a fast pace of development. Alongside the next release of the Vega core software, codenamed Flamenco Tavern, we’ll be allowing some validators to run nodes. Following that, we’ll also provide downloads for non-validator users to run their own local nodes. Stay in touch through our forums, Discord and social media for information and updates on these programmes.
Early access for market makers and liquidity providers.
We've launched our Markets and Liquidity Programme to give liquidity providers exclusive access to the protocol ahead of the mainnet launch. This is an opportunity to evaluate Vega Protocol commercially and technically, as well as collaborate with stakeholders to ensure a mainnet launch that meets the needs of traders, market makers, and other participants in the system. More information on the programme can be found on our forum.
