What is STRATO?
STRATO is the best way to build blockchain apps. You'll get a RESTful API out-of-the-box, so you can add blockchain to your existing applications without the heavy lifting.
What's the difference between the testnet and running my own node?
Running your own node is the best option if you're building apps. The STRATO Testnet is simply a node hosted by BlockApps on our multinode test network. Once you've built an app on STRATO, you can upload it to the BlockApps Testnet so that other members of our community can use and discover your app.
