Safe For Mainnet
Allows testers and application developers to test the new features and functionalities of a protocol in a different environment without having to worry about breaking the main blockchain.
Node Runners and Validators
By setting up a Node or a Validator on Testnet, they can practice as much as they want and minimize the mistakes that can lead to financial damage.

What is Self Chain Node?
Full nodes typically are computers that synchronize with a blockchain or Self Chain network in order to store a record of transactions or perform other functions.
On Self Chain, full nodes are primarily useful for those who want to prepare to become a validator node or wish to operate a fully trustless connection point to the network for account control or network monitoring, via the Core API.
What is Validator Node?
A validator node is a special type of full node that participates in “consensus.” By participating in consensus, validator nodes become responsible for verifying, voting on, and maintaining a record of transactions. The Self Chain protocol only allows the top 125 validators to participate in consensus. These are selected based on the amount of stake $SELF token holders have delegated to them.
Validator nodes underpin the security of Self Chain network. That is why it is of vital importance to ensure that validator nodes remain both performant and trustworthy.
Is there a faucet? For Testnet Events and Devnets
Faucets can be requested on our testnet-faucet channel on the Self Chain Discord server. Only for the validator role, you can apply for the validator role on the validator-role-request channel.
