Quick Start Guide
Elysium is a fully Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform on Polkadot. As such, you can interact with Elysium via the Ethereum API and Substrate API.
You can interact with your Elysium account with MetaMask, Ledger, and other Ethereum-compatible wallets by simply adding Elysium’s network configurations.
Similarly, you can develop on Elysium using Ethereum libraries and development environments.
To get started developing on Elysium, it’s important to be aware of the various networks within the Elysium ecosystem.
|Network||Network Type||Native Asset Symbol||Native Asset Decimals|
When working with developer tools, depending on the tool, you might need to configure Elysium to interact with the network. To do so, you can use the following information:
Elysium provides EVM-based explorer which used to query the Ethereum API. All EVM-based transactions are accessible via the Ethereum API. For more information on each explorer, please check out the Block Explorers page.
To get started developing on Atlantis (Testnet), you’ll need to fund your account with LAVA tokens to send transactions. Please note that Testnet LAVA tokens have no real value and are for testing purposes only.
Mainnet tokens are only available for those people who are bridging their assets from Polygon to Elysium using Bridge (https://bridge.elysiumchain.tech/).
|Atlantis||The https://faucet.atlantischain.network/ website. The faucet dispenses 1 LAVA every 24 hours|
|Elysium||The https://faucet.elysiumchain.tech/ website. The faucet dispenses 3 LAVA for one time.|
As Elysium is a Substrate-based chain that is fully Ethereum-compatible, you can use Substrate-based tools and Ethereum-based tools to interact with chain.
