Staging Testnet Migration to Goerli

Staging Testnet Migration

At 2022-09-12 15:00 UTC, we will be turning down our exchange services running on the Ropsten Testnet. The Ropsten Testnet has been deprecated by the Ethereum Foundation and will be shut down in 2022 Q4.

In place of this, we will be launching our exchange on the Goerli Testnet. Please note that accounts, balances, and positions will not be migrated from Ropsten. You can follow the progress of the migration via our status page.

You will be able to use our Testnet exchange the same way as before at trade.stage.dydx.exchange. The same features will be available, including free test funds via the ‘Deposit’ button! The Testnet exchange is a great place to test out all the features we have to offer, as well as trading strategies!

For developers: please make sure to upgrade your clients to the latest version (v3-client: v1.14.0, dydx-v3-python: v1.9.0, starkex-eth: 0.15.0) in order to support the new chain, as well as your chainId to 5.

Please note that these changes will not affect our exchange running on Ethereum Mainnet.

Happy Trading!
