Question 1: What is Nebulas Testnet and what does it do?

Answer: Testnet of Nebulas is a milestone for us. We released our fully functional blockchain system, which means users and developers can create their own wallet address and send transactions to others, and also write smart contracts. The most important part in this testnet is about the smart contract.We provide Javascript functionality supporting to write smart contract. That means all the web developers, whoever knows about the Javascript can writesmart contract, can dive into Nebulas, can embrace the blockchain community. We wish we provide those such functionality could make blockchain ecosystem, and Nebulas community grow faster and stronger.

Answer: Yes, testnet is open and public. Whoever, the user and developer can access it from our site, we provide page to describe how to use that.
