In this section, you need the tools and environment to develop and run smart contracts. You can utilize our testnet to deploy and make contract calls.
Verify that the testnet is live
To verify that our testnet is live and running, please make sure that the following URLs are working:
The ParallelChain Mainnet native tokens are called
You can see the status of your transactions and whether they are added to the block here - ParallelChain Testnet Explorer
The testnet explorer can explore transactions, addresses, analytics (performance of
testnet), and blocks. Alternatively, you can use ParallelChain's light client (called
pchain) to interact with the
Setup ParallelChain Light Client
In this section, we will configure the
pchain executable. We will assume that
pchain runs on both Windows and Linux/MacOs as we have guides on setting up the Light Client for these platforms.
Therefore, when you use
pchain, the same command applies to Windows, Linux and MacOS command line interface.
See "Installation" to install
pchain on your pc.
