What is the Testnet?

It is like the "UAT blockchain". There are ETH Tesnets, BTC Testnets, BCH Testnets, etc. It allows developers and users to test code and simulate production blockchain functionality, using fake crypto funds.

What is a Faucet?

It is a web-based service that provides free tokens to users. It's typically done via a "pull" mechanism. For example, you tell the faucet what your Testnet address is and how many coins you want.

Usually and depending on the chain, Testnets will only allow you to summon a small amount.
