Getting Started with Openfabric AI Testnet
Step 1: Visit openfabric.dev and Set Up Metamask
The journey begins by visiting openfabric.dev, where you’ll have the opportunity to experience AI applications uniquely. However, before you dive into the world of AI, it’s crucial to ensure that you have Metamask installed in your web browser. Metamask is a cryptocurrency wallet and gateway to blockchain applications that will be used to access the Openfabric AI Testnet.
If you don’t already have Metamask, don’t worry. You can easily install it as a browser extension or plugin. After installation, set up your Metamask wallet, following the on-screen instructions.
Congratulations, you are ready to access the Openfabric AI Testnet.
Navigating the Openfabric AI Testnet
Now that you’ve configured your Testnet account, you can dive into the Openfabric AI Testnet. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make the most of it:
Step 1: Add Funds to Your Account
Before you can create, interact with AI applications, or browse the Openfabric AI Testnet, you’ll need to add funds to your Testnet account. These funds are essential for making payments within the Testnet environment.
To add funds, you need to go to this URL: https://faucet.openfabric.dev. Once there, input your Metamask wallet address and click the “request button.” This will grant you 100 test OFN, which you can utilize in the Openfabric AI Marketplace to run AI applications.
Step 2: Access Openfabric AI Testnet
After you’ve added money to your testnet account, follow these steps to create a secure account on Openfabric AI Testnet with Metamask:
- Navigate to the Openfabric registration page by entering https://openfabric.dev/register in your web browser.
- On this page, you’ll see a form with several fields that you must fill out (First name, Last name, Email, Terms and Privacy checkbox).
- Ensure all the information is accurate and complete every field.
- Click the “Register with Metamask” button to proceed. Metamask is a secure wallet and gateway to blockchain apps, which you’ll use to create your account safely. It will likely prompt you for a confirmation to connect your Metamask wallet to the Openfabric platform.
- After your account creation is successful, you will need to navigate to the “Login” page.
- On the “Login” page, select the option “Login with Metamask.” This will allow you to securely log in using the Metamask wallet you linked during registration.
Remember, using Metamask adds a layer of security by allowing you to perform transactions and interact with the platform without exposing your private keys.
Step 3: Create an AI application instance
Now that you’re in the Openfabric AI Testnet, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and start using our already available AI applications.
Once you’ve selected an AI application from the marketplace that fits your requirements, the next step is to begin setting it up. To do this, click on the “Create Instances” button to start the Create instance flow. This process will guide you through selecting the necessary infrastructure and making the required payment to run your chosen AI application.
This process is designed to be user-friendly and will guide you through a series of steps to set up your application:
- Infrastructure Selection: The create instance flow will present you with options for selecting the infrastructure that your AI application will run on.
- Payment Process: After selecting the necessary infrastructure, you’ll be directed to the payment stage, where you’ll review the costs associated with both the AI application and the infrastructure you’ve chosen.
- Installation Initiation: Following a successful payment confirmation, the platform will automatically begin the installation of the AI application onto the infrastructure you’ve paid for. This process is typically automated, and you should receive updates as the installation progresses.
- Completion and Access: Once the AI application installation is complete, the platform will notify you, and from there, you can begin to use and evaluate the AI application.
Step 3: Run Your App
With your created instance in place, you go ahead and run your AI application. Openfabric AI simplifies the process, making it accessible for everyone. Follow the on-screen prompts to set up your application.
After configuring your app, click “Run” to set it in motion.
