Frequently Asked Questions
What is ZetaLabs?
ZetaLabs lets you contribute to the ZetaChain blockchain development by testing with omnichain dApps built on the ZetaChain Testnet. Contributors can invite others to join and test the various products on ZetaLabs to earn ZETA points which track your progress as a tester.
What is ZetaChain?
ZetaChain is the world's first and only blockchain that connects everything. It facilitates cross-chain and cross-layer value transfer, message delivery, and smart contract calls — thus enabling for the first time omnichain dApps (odApps) which can leverage liquidity on multiple networks and read and update states on all connected networks.

What is the Swap app?
This is an omnichain swap dApp built on ZetaChain. You can transfer assets between any connected chain, without wrapping or locked tokens, in a single step. Test it out!

How long will the ZetaChain Testnet run for? What about ZetaLabs?
The ZetaChain Athens Testnet is a fully explorable network for developers to build and test dApps prior to releasing them on Mainnet. It will periodically experience downtime as the ZetaChain undergoes active development. Although it may change over time with blockchain upgrades, the Testnet will serve as a development platform for ZetaChain and dApp development even beyond the release of Mainnet. We will periodically release more updates on Twitter and Discord regarding ZetaLabs about new features and dApps that you may interact with and help test.
What wallets can I use?
You can connect your Metamask and Coinbase wallets. We will be adding more wallet support soon!
What are ZETA Points?
ZETA Points are a way to track your progress as a tester in ZetaLabs, whether that be the number of new members you invite, the weekly transactions you've made, or the bugs you've discovered and reported.
How do I earn ZETA Points?
You can earn ZETA Points by performing transactions and inviting others to ZetaLabs. Points are linked to an address and Twitter account.
Here are your objectives:
Invite a new member with your unique invite code
For each weekly transaction you do (max 1 per week)
For each weekly transaction per person you invite
For discovering issues and reporting them in our Discord you'll get points depending on the issue's severity!
If your Twitter is following @zetablockchain, you might get something extra!
Is there any limit to how many ZETA Points I can earn?
The amount of ZETA Points you can earn is technically unlimited, but there are some restrictions to how many you can earn from certain actions. For example, from your own transactions using the Swap app, the points you can earn are capped at 7000 points per week (1 transaction per week max). You must verify your Twitter account and your connected wallet in order to earn ZETA Points.
What can ZETA Points be used for?
ZETA Points are used to track your progress as a tester and contributor to the ZetaChain network. They have no monetary value.
What happens if I use a different wallet from the one I entered on the sign up form?
You can disconnect and connect any wallet to send transactions from! Please make sure you have verified your Twitter account and verified your connected wallet in order to receive ZETA points.
My transaction is not going through. What do I do now?
How do I report a bug?
You can report bugs and leave feedback through Intercom in the app and the Discord # 👌| support-squad channel. You can earn 10k+ ZETA Points by reporting a bug to us, with the amount depending on the issue's severity. This is the fastest way to earn the most ZETA Points!
The network is down. What do I do now? Can I still earn points?
The Testnet will periodically undergo upgrades and stress testing as it is under active development. If the network is down, transactions may not go through successfully. During these periods, transaction-based points earning will not be possible. However, you may still earn points through non-transaction-based actions like inviting other testers to ZetaLabs.
