# How to Request Testnet Tokens?

There are two types of tokens on the Testnet:

  • ACA tokens (the equivalent of ETH) for gas fee
  • SQT tokens for staking (contract address is 0x6B3953381f777Fa7136f1EA263e37174440090D1)

You can receive ACA and SQT tokens from the faucet channel (opens new window) under the Frontier Testnet Group in SubQuery’s Discord community.

# ACA tokens

  • Copy your account address from MetaMask and type !drip <address> to send SQT and ACA tokens to a given address. You can only make this call once per 6 hour.
  • You will receive the tokens within a few minutes.

ACA tokens can be addressed as anything. Here it is called SQT_TESTNET.
