To mitigate confusion, we need to communicate a few pieces of information regarding the changes surrounding the infrastructure and domain addresses of the Aleph Zero testnet.
Firstly, the domain addresses test-api.alephzero.org and test-rpc.alephzero.org will shortly stop working entirely. This will impact users who have been using third-party tools, especially those who have been exclusively using the wallet hosted on polkadot.js.org.
Finally, accessing the testnet wallet through testwallet.alephzero.org will result in the user being redirected to test.azero.dev. Users who are taking advantage of the polkadot.js browser extension will be presented with a pop-up requesting access to the new domain.
- The team is moving from test-api.alephzero.org to ws.test.azero.dev;
- The team is moving from test-rpc.alephzero.org to rpc.test.azero.dev;
- Domain faucet.alephzero.org will now redirect to faucet.test.azero.dev;
- Domain testwallet.alephzero.org will redirect to test.azero.dev; if you’re using the polkadot.js browser extension, you should see the relevant pop-up.
Hopefully, these points will help to clarify the ongoing developments and will assuage the concerns these changes may bring.
Remember that we will always keep you updated on any changes to our chain through the Aleph Zero blog and our social media channels!
