The innovative and highly scalable blockchain infrastructure is now open to developers and users for testing.

Venom, a layer-1 blockchain that operates out of the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), today announced that its public testnet is officially live. The milestone marks a significant accomplishment in Venom’s roadmap as it prepares to launch on mainnet. Along with the testnet launch, Venom has also unveiled a host of in-house developed decentralized applications as part of its growing ecosystem.

The testnet design suits both ecosystem users and developers. It enables developers to test and debug DApps and blockchain protocols while allowing users to experience these DApps firsthand. The goal of the program is to encourage innovation and community building within the ecosystem.

Developers and users can try out the testnet in two simple steps. First, download the Venom Wallet on mobile via Apple’s App Store or Google’s Play Store, or on the desktop as a Google Chrome extension. Users can then jumpstart their journey of testing the Venom ecosystem by claiming a free testnet allocation.


Peter Knez, chair of the Venom Foundation Council, commented on the achievement:

“We’re excited to announce the launch of Venom’s public testnet, a crucial step toward our upcoming mainnet launch. With our highly scalable and reliable asynchronous blockchain, we’re confident that developers will be able to build innovative DApps, while users will be able to experience them firsthand.”

Developers will be able to try their hand at building on the asynchronous Venom blockchain, which boasts ultra-fast speed at 100,000 TPS and a dynamic sharding feature that enhances scalability and network reliability. To kick things off, Venom has curated a repository of developer documentation to equip developers with the necessary tools and knowledge to start building.

Venom’s network boosts interoperability, making it a viable tool for developers, while its low transaction fees make it user-friendly for global adoption.

A host of DApps to debut on the testnet

Several DApps are to make their debut on Venom testnet. Users can test them out by performing transactions, testing the native Venom wallet and much more:

  • Venom Wallet
  • Venom Scan
  • VenomPools
  • Venom Bridge
  • Venom Stake
  • Web3.World
  • WeUp
  • NFT Mint
