Production Blockchain vs. Testnet

These tutorials favor use of the production Steem blockchain. However, some produce content that would be spammy. And spam on a blockchain, like everything else on a blockchain, is forever. Eww.

So for those tutorials we use a testnet setup and maintained by user @almost-digital. You can see its current status, and learn how to easily create accounts and connect to it at And depending on the day, you can even use an outdated version of condenser to crawl it at

Credentials for demo accounts on the testnet are in tutorials/configuration.js`. Because this information is public, someone may have changed the keys of these accounts. If this has happened, you can either wait until the testnet reboots, or create an account or two of your own. It's super easy
