LiteCoin testnet configuration


Hi all. I am trying to configure Litecoin Testnet. So I have a downloaded binary file from official site (, have unpacked (I am using ubuntu 16.04), have created litecoin.conf file look like this

Than have run the demo -> litecoind -daemon -testnet

Ok. Its worked. I am getting the adress for my account, but when I am tring to send a test coins from (faucet) , my litecoind does not receive. Please Help…!!!


Check the testnet chain for confirmation it was actually sent:


Also check, did it actually start in testnet mode?

Could you provide a generated address example? If it starts with M, L or 3 then it is not testnet.

Ah, this is interesting.

But, that same address, if used as a Bitcoin one, has balance:

I think you’re using a faucet for the wrong currency (bitcoin, in this case). Please confirm faucet URL.


I have sent some coins from

I cant found a site,from where I can send some litecoin test coins. can you share the link please?


That is a Bitcoin faucet :slight_smile:

No, I don’t know any Litecoin faucet, did you try a search on the forum?

Thank you very much!!!


I just sent a few testnet coins to the address you posted, since it was still empty. If you (or someone else) needs more coins just tell me.


Thank you very much!!!
