Testnet collator guide
Astar Network has 2 mainnet parachains: Astar connected to Polkadot and Shiden connected to Kusama.
​Shibuya is our testnet parachain, it is connected to a custom relaychain named Tokyo which is maintained by Astar core team.
Shibuya is the Astar Network's parachain testnet with EVM functionalities which is the closest to the Shiden and Astar mainnet. Shibuya has almost the exact chain specifications and creates the best test environment for developers who want to launch their dApp on mainnet.
