SingularityNET uses the AGI Token for its marketplace. The AGI Token is an ERC-20 token hosted on the Ethereum blockchain. Right now, we are in the
beta phase of the SingularityNET Marketplace. That means that you will need to use Kovan or Ropsten Testnet AGI to work with our tools. You can get Kovan or Ropsten Testnet AGI by following the instructions here.
Testnet AGI vs Mainnet AGI
For those new to Ethereum, it may be a bit confusing what exactly the difference between Testnet and Mainnet tokens are. In principle, you can distinguish them as follows:

- Mainnet tokens are used for officially deployed software.
- Testnet tokens never have a monetary value.
- Mainnet tokens could have a monetary value.
- Both tokens can be used to add extra utility to the software.
Since we are currently in the Beta stage, we only use Kovan and Ropsten Testnet AGI. You can find our Mainnet AGI Token (to be used in a later stage) here with the address
NOTE While we are aware that the AGI token is currently being traded on some exchanges, we do not encourage or facilitate this exchange trading in any manner. Speculative secondary trading is against the spirit of the AGI token and SingularityNET project. We strongly discourage speculative secondary trading and officially ask AGI token holders to act accordingly.
