Catalyst: Lynx Testnet Launch

Catalyst: Lynx Testnet Launch

The Catalyst: Lynx Testnet is live! Dive into the future of cross-chain liquidity with the full might of Catalyst.

Today, we are officially launching access to the first full version of the Catalyst testnet, affectionately named Lynx Testnet!

This is the first opportunity that the community will have to use the full power of the Catalyst Protocol. New features and products will be released and highlighted as the protocol scales, and users who participate early can expect a number of new developments and surprises along the way.

You can get started today by either

  1. Going to and aimlessly playing around with the interface; or
  2. Going to Catalyst Missions and completing tailor-made tasks to showcase the full power of Catalyst.

As a reminder, community members who complete the most missions will have access to a special set of the latest testnet functionality as the protocol scales.


The guide here will provide a short introduction to the Lynx Testnet.

You asked and we delivered. More chains have been added to Lynx Testnet–with many more in the pipeline. We’ll be releasing chain support in batches.

The first batch is connecting Mantle and Base, two new popular rollups on Ethereum.
