Operation <Break_Me> Testnet Campaign with up to $2m in Rewards has Begun!

June 5, 2023
In Neon Link

In May, we shed light on our exciting testnet campaign, an opportunity for you to share in a reward pool of up to $1m worth of NEON coins. This event officially began on 15 May!

In the week prior to the beginning of the event, we saw our Neon Link testnet community grow in preparation for this campaign. We had 6000 accounts created and counting. Now, we're close to 10 million transactions processed across over 120k accounts.

In our recently released progress report #2, which you can find by clicking here, we decided to boost the rewards on offer for Operation Break Me to $2m in NEON. If you haven't yet joined us in the testnet, there's still time for you to get involved and share in the event's rewards.

Remember, the greater the participation in the testnet campaign, the larger the reward pool to be distributed. Continue reading to discover how you can join in and reap the benefits.

What You Will Need

All you require is a multi-chain Ethereum-based wallet, such as MetaMask and TrustWallet. 

It is completely free to participate as it is a testnet campaign.

Getting Started with Neon Link

Before conducting actions to earn points that will convert to NEON rewards, you'll need to add the Neon Link testnet network to your MetaMask wallet and secure some tNEON and other testnet tokens, if you haven't already. If you have you can skip this section.

Adding Neon Link testnet network to MetaMask

Begin by adding the Neon Link testnet to MetaMask using the following details:

Alternatively, Chainlist.org provides a quick and easy way to add the testnet to your wallet. Simply tick the 'Include Testnets' box and search for 'Neonlink Testnet'.

While you're there, why not also add the Neon Link mainnet in anticipation of our alpha launch slated for July this year?

Obtaining Testnet NEON (tNEON)

Your next step is to obtain testnet NEON, as well as a variety of other testnet assets.

You can claim tNEON, along with a number of other testnet, via the following faucet:


Note that each wallet can only claim from the faucet once. The amount you receive should be sufficient for the actions detailed below. If you do need additional tNEON you can always request more testnet assets to a different wallet address and then transfer it to the wallet you are using for Op Break Me.

Claiming tNEON will also reward you with a variety of test tokens (e.g., USDT, BNB, AVAX, and BTC). You can see these in the testnet blockchain explorer.

If you face any issues, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team on Telegram, Discord or Twitter.

Actions to Earn Points

Now you have testnet assets and connected to the network, lets outline the key actions to earn points, which will convert to NEON rewards:

Use the Decentralised Exchange

Use the NEON DEX (https://dex.neonlink.io/) to add liquidity and swap between tNEON and the other testnet crypto assets you've received from the faucet.

Mint a Neonite 

Mint a Neonite NFT (https://neonites.neonlink.io/mint-nft). Try your luck in securing a Legendary Neonite for bonus points!

Minting a Neonite will cost you a tNEON fee, plus a nominal network fee.

You can view minted NFTs via NeonScan. You can do this by going to the following link:

https://testnet-scan.neonlink.io/nft/{address} → you will need to replace the address section of this URL with your wallet address.

The different probabilities of minting a Neonite of different rarity:

  • Common: 88.98 %
  • Rare 10 %
  • Epic 1 %
  • Legendary 0.02 %
Mint a NeoBot

We've recently launched the NeoBot collection. Find out more about these and the link to mint them on Testnet by clicking here.

Final Note

Keep your eyes peeled for more updates and new ways to participate - especially the opportunity to earn points that will convert into NEON rewards through initiatives such as our upcoming Zealy campaign (formerly known as Crew3). We're eager to hear your feedback and learn from your experiences with the testnet during this campaign.

Let's embark on this journey together and make Operation <Break_Me> Testnet Campaign a roaring success! Although, let's hope our network withstands the challenge and doesn't truly 'break'. Remember, it's all part of the process as we strive to make our system the best it can be.
