Want to try Perpetual Protocol without risking your funds? Here's how!
Already know what you're doing? Go straight to the exchange: rinkeby.perp.exchange
We currently support using the desktop Firefox or Chrome version of the Metamask wallet for interaction with the Perpetual Protocol perp.exchange interface.
Install Metamask here:
Switch Metamask to the Rinkeby testnet.
Go to rinkeby.perp.exchange and connect your wallet in the upper right corner of the screen. Note only Metamask is supported at this time. Hardware wallets are currently not supported due to lack of support for the metatransactions.
Request USDT using the built in faucet on the left side of the screen.
Transferring funds via the following steps.
Enter the amount you want to transfer ⚠️ You must deposit <500 USDT each time otherwise the transaction will fail due to the gas-free deposit feature not being active in testnet

Approve the use of funds for trading on xDai
Sign the transaction in Metamask -- Done!
Choose the trading pair you'd like to trade.
Open a position. Choose Buy to open a long position, and Sell to open a short:
Enter the size of the position and choose the amount of leverage you want to use. The collateral needed will be calculated for you:
[Optional] Set the slippage tolerance. On testnet this is very unlikely to affect anything, but on mainnet if trading activity is high, slippage may be a factor you wish to consider.
Review the transaction and click Buy or Sell.
