Testnet Guide - zkSync 2.0
zkSync 2.0 have just launched their public testnet. Let’s see what we can do there.
As the testnet is running on Goerli network, you will need to to get some Goerli ETH first. Try any of the faucets below.
Skip step 2 if you can’t get any Goerli ETH.
Head to https://portal.zksync.io/ and connect your wallet. You will automatically be asked to add the “zkSync 2.0 testnet Goerli” network.
You may also add the network manually to your metamask.
Network Name: zkSync alpha testnet
New RPC URL: https://zksync2-testnet.zksync.dev
Chain ID: 280
Step 2: (Skip if you don’t have Goerli ETH.)
We first go to “Bridge” then “Deposit” to deposit some $ETH to zkSync 2.0.
Next we go to “Faucet” to get some testnet $LINK, $DAI, $WBTC and $USDC into our zkSync address.
Check your balance at “Balances” after claiming.
Now go to “Transfer”. Input the address of another wallet and transfer some tokens to it. Pay the fees in DAI if you don’t have ETH.
At last we go to “Withdraw” to withdraw some $ETH from zkSync back to Goerli. Pay the fees in DAI if you don’t have ETH.
We can also try swapping, LPing and farming at Mute currently live on zkSync 2.0 Testnet.
(Everything starting from Step 6 is very slow. You may want to try later when zkSync have fixed the issue).
Go to https://testnet.switch.mute.io/ and connect our wallet again to the zkSync 2.0 Testnet.
We first try swapping some $ETH to $DAI.
Go to “POOL” and “Add Liquidity”. Form a LP with $DAI and $ETH.
Finally go to “FARMING” to deposit your LP.
