We’re extremely excited to launch early access to the Solstice testnet!
This release will enable individuals to have the first look at the Injective exchange that from day one has been built to be fully decentralized, fast, and free of any gas fees.
Extremely fast transactions are enabled by our unparalleled layer-2 structure, which eclipses all other decentralized exchanges available today. In addition, the intuitive UI was built to retain the accessibility offered by popular centralized exchanges. As a result, Injective is able to provide everyone with a platform that integrates the best aspects from both the decentralized and centralized exchange ecosystems.
The Solstice testnet will consist of three discrete phases. The first phase will kick off with the Golden Ticket Early Access, which enables strong supporters of Injective to earn additional rewards before the public launch of Solstice. The second phase will be composed of a trading competition. The final phase of Solstice will be announced in the coming weeks.
This article will help provide some further details on Solstice and how you can start earning rewards, so read on!
You can now navigate to https://testnet.injective.exchange and take part in our inaugural perpetual markets.
You can interact with Solstice via either the https://testnet.injective.exchange client or the Injective core API. Solstice will launch with 10 initial perpetual markets with live price feeds stemming from various sources. These markets along with a technical overview of the testnet will be shared soon.
We welcome everyone to take part in Solstice and provide valuable feedback, so we can begin to move towards the next stage of the testnet as soon as possible.
Golden Ticket Early Access
To show our appreciation to early supporters we are introducing the Injective Golden Ticket Early Access.
During this period, Solstice will only be invite-only, meaning that you can only gain access via a unique referral link. This provides you with opportunities to get early access to Solstice while also earning additional rewards before the start of the trading competition.
Please keep in mind that our waitlist now has over 10,000 sign ups so we will be releasing new referral codes in small batches before the full public release. Do not worry if you are not able to gain early access on the first day. We will release new referral codes on a daily basis to onboard new users.

What Comes Next
Solstice will serve an integral role as we also look to launch our mainnet in the coming months.
As more users join Solstice and test our functionalities, we will be able to further optimize our DEX before the mainnet launch. We encourage everyone to try it out and provide feedback, so we can further perfect our product.
So in summary, Solstice is invite-only for now. Next, Solstice will be released publicly along with a trading competition. Afterwards, we will release the final phase of Solstice. All of these phases will include opportunities to earn rewards.
Here is a quick timeline
