Generate Test Account

To deploy your contract to any testnet, you will first need to
  • generate your own test account;
  • transfer some test tokens to it to ensure you can pay for the deployment transaction fee.
In the following tutorial, we use the Polkadot.js extension as the default wallet. Other wallets are available here.
