Multichain Testnet v1

Asgard.exchange is the primary interface for multichain testnet until ASGARD Desktop Client is released later this week.

Asgard Exchange is entirely a community built entry point to THORChain and supports BTC & BNB chains + Native RUNE. Other chains will be supported imminently.

The following tutorials by community memeber @trader310 provide step by step instructions on how to use Asgard.Exchange and test the network:

Native RUNE

$RUNE is native to THORChain and will need to be upgraded from BEP2 (RUNE-67C).

Create a new keystore on Asgard.Exchange, request RUNE from the @runefaucetbot on telegram & upgrade it via the wallet in Asgard Exchange.
