On these pages you can find different guides to get started operating on our chain

The Pendulum blockchain is based on the Substrate framework and runs on three different networks:

  • Pendulum: Polkadot parachain. The "mainnet".

  • Amplitude: Kusama parachain. The "canary" network. Tokens have real value, but network is more dynamic and experimental than Pendulum.

  • Foucoco: Rococo parachain. The testnet. Tokens have no real value and network may arbitrarily reset.
