Q Onboarding in 5 Minutes
First install the browser add-on 'MetaMask'. After successful installation, add a custom network and enter the Q network configuration details that are documented within MetaMask tutorial. Finally, create two new accounts so you can later send Q tokens from one to another.
Get your first Q
If you don't own Q tokens already, get some for free using our faucet at
https://faucet.qtestnet.org. Enter your wallet address, select the token you want to receive (Q, QUSD or QBTC) and click on "claim tokens".
If the faucet is funded enough, your balance will increase within a couple of seconds. If the faucet has run out of funds, drop us a note on our Discord server.
Verify Q Funding
After some seconds, open MetaMask and select the wallet account you just funded. It should now have received a couple of Q's and should display an according balance.
Within MetaMask, click on "send", then "transfer between my accounts" and select the second wallet account you just created. Finish the transaction and wait for the entered amount of Q to be transferred from account to account. You can verify the transaction within the Q block explorer located at
https://explorer.qtestnet.org. You can of course send Q to any other wallet address you know.
Now open a new tab and head over to
https://hq.qtestnet.org. If you have MetaMask still activated and connected to Q testnet, you should be browsing the Q decentralised app that allows users to excercise governance rights, earn rewards on Q tokens or do some saving and borrowing with Q DeFi.
