Setting Up Lilico Wallet For Development

Chapter 1 Lesson 1 - Download & Setup Lilico Wallet

When testing your DApps on the Flow testnet, it’s important to ensure you have a wallet capable of supporting multiple accounts and that those accounts have been funded. Unfunded testnet accounts will often run into storage capacity errors when attempting to interact with the blockchain.

Setup Developer Mode

Once your account has been created, we need to enable Developer Mode to access our testnet account. Head to the “Settings” tab (it’s the ‘profile’ icon in the bottom right corner of the screen) then click on “Developer Mode”. On the next screen press the toggle to enable Developer Mode and select “Testnet”. You can now navigate back to the main account page, once there you should see a green “TESTNET” badge next to your account name in the upper right corner of the screen.
