How to access the WAX testnet

The WAX testnet is a great way for you to learn how to change private keys on an account, manage anchor, create NFTs or upload smart contracts. There are public API's available, as well as faucets to create accounts and get tokens. You will also find a testnet version of atomichub, as well as bloks that you can use.
