Cryptocurrency faucets were initially introduced to promote the adoption of cryptocurrencies and give people a way to obtain small amounts of digital currency for free. The idea of faucets was first introduced with Bitcoin faucets, but later on it has been adopted by several other cryptocurrencies.
Testnet faucets, on the other hand, represent a web3 utility used for the distribution of different tokens and digital assets in a tested environment. Their purpose is similar to the standard cryptocurrency faucets, but the approach is different.
Testnets are different blockchain networks created by cryptocurrency projects solely for experimentation and testing purposes. They mimic the functionalities of the mainnet (the live blockchain network), but use test tokens instead of real cryptocurrencies, which do not have any real-world value.
Through cryptocurrency faucets for testnets different test tokens can be distributed to developers, users, QA specialists and anyone else who would like to test the functionalities of the blockchain network without using real cryptocurrencies. DApps and smart contracts functionalities can also be examined in a secure setting.
