Bend User Guide ​

You are able to test Bend without spending crypto assets by using Berachain Testnet.

To get started, head to the Bend testnet client which is available at https://artio.bend.berachain.com/.

Make sure to switch your wallet provider to the appropriate testnet network in order to use the protocol testnet without incurring costs on the mainnet network.

WARNING

Testnet networks are different environments from mainnet and simulate real use cases for development, testing or production. The assets on a testnet are not “real,” meaning that they cannot be withdrawn to your wallet for any real economic value.
