2022-09-12 Address formats for Testing in CERT

 

Zero Hash sends withdrawal transactions on a blockchain's main network for Production transactions and a blockchain's test network for Certification transactions. Note that not all networks have a supported test network (the full list can be found here).

When testing supported assets in the CERT environment, be sure to use the correct address format. Even on some chains like Ethereum, the mainnet format will be the same as the testnet but assets will not transfer between the two. 

Additionally, be sure to adhere to network minimum withdrawal requirements and Zero Hash recommended minimums outlined in this article.
