You’ve come to the right place, if you want to try out a full Raiden node with minimum effort! https://try.raiden.network gives you the opportunity to play around with Raiden, open channels, send tokens and get familiar with other functionalities. Please note that this is only meant as a convenient way to try out Raiden for the first time. Everything is run on the Goerli testnet and is hosted remotely.

To start, you only need to fill in the form at https://try.raiden.network and wait for the confirmation email that your Raiden node is live. We value your privacy so you can use trash mail accounts.

The setup procedure as well as the funding of your node will take a couple of minutes. Consider to fill in the form now and and continue reading afterwards. Please read the email carefully as it contains helpful information regarding your first steps.

Note that your Raiden node will run on the Görlie testnet!
