Get some free AR: An Arweave faucet tutorial

Since Koi works as a layer on top of Arweave, you need a small amount of AR to register your content on the Koi Network. Luckily, you can get a free AR wallet (perfect for storing KOI too) and some AR for free from the Arweave faucet.

It only takes a few steps but if you’re new to blockchain, it can be confusing.

Once you’re at the Arweave faucet, select the checkbox and then click the Continue button.

Next you create an AR wallet by selecting the checkbox (again) and clicking “Download Wallet.” This will appear as a .JSON file. For the less tech-savvy of us, you don’t need to open the file or do anything with it other than putting it in a safe folder.

Save the keyfile somewhere safe! Keeping a copy of the file on 2-3+ devices is recommended because no one can retrieve or recover it for you if you lose it. All your tokens would disappear with the wallet.

Now you will have to verify that you are a real person by tweeting from an active Twitter account. Click “Open Tweet Pop-Up.” The pop-up may prompt you to log in to Twitter.

If you’re a pretty active tweet-er, you’ll already be logged in and all you have to do is click “Tweet” in the Twitter pop up, then “Next” in the Arweave faucet flow.

After successfully tweeting, click “Next”.

You’ll then get a success message and you’ll have a bit of AR in your new Arweave Wallet!

Now let’s head over to the KOI Faucet Tutorial to get some KOI tokens.

If you already have KOI tokens, head right over to register your content on Koi.rocks
