What is Goerli ?
Goerli is a proof-of-authority (POA) cross-client testnet for Ethereum smart contract development. It allows developers to perform blockchain development tests before deploying code on the Ethereum network.
Other testnets based on Goerli, such as Base, Linea, Scroll, etc., require obtaining GoerliETH through Goerli's cross-chain mechanism to pay transaction fees. This article uses the Goerli testnet as an example to explain how to get test coins and perform token swaps between test networks.
How to Switch to the Goerli Testnet
Open your ETH wallet and click the "Ethereum" dropdown menu to access the network switching page. Then click "Testnet" and select "Ethereum Goerli Testnet" from the list to switch to the Goerli testnet page.
How to Obtain Test Coins
You can acquire test coins through three methods:
- Receiving them for free from third-party websites
- Actively participating in activities on the imToken Discord
Purchasing Test Coins
Preparation: Ensure you have sufficient ETH in your ETH wallet for transaction fees.
1. On the "Browser" page of imToken, enter "https://testnetbridge.com" to access TestNet Bridge, a web for the cross-chain swap of Goerli test coins.
2. Click "CONNECT" at the bottom of the page and select "imToken" to link your wallet.
3. Select the payment network and enter the purchase amount. Click "TRANSFER" to initiate the transaction.
Once you have successfully obtained Goerli testnet tokens, you can swap them for test coins on other testnets according to your needs.
How to Get Test Coins on the Scroll Network
1. On the imToken "Browser" page, search for "scroll bridge" and enter the Scroll Bridge page.
2. Click "Connect Wallet" in the upper right corner and select imToken to connect your wallet.
3. Select the "Goerli Testnet" network, enter the desired amount of tokens to swap, and click "Send ETH to Scroll AlphaTestnet." Wait patiently for the test coins to be credited to your account.
How to Get Test Coins on the Base Network
1. On the imToken "Browser" page, enter "https://goerli.hop.exchange/" and access the Hop Bridge page.
2. Click "Confirm" to disclose the address and connect your imToken wallet.
3. Select the "Goerli" network and enter the amount of tokens you want to swap. Click "Send" to initiate the transaction and then patiently wait for the test coins to be credited to your account.
How to Get Test Coins on Other Networks
The process of obtaining other testnet coins, such as Linea, is the same as above. Just select the testnet you need when exchanging.

Ethereum test networks are primarily intended for developers to conduct testing. The value of ETH on test networks cannot be compared to ETH on the Ethereum mainnet. Any claims of selling test coins with the promise of upgrading them to mainnet coins are scams.
