We’re excited to announce the launch of Coinbase Sandbox, a dedicated test environment where merchants and developers can easily and safely test bitcoin functionality.
The Coinbase Sandbox runs on testnet3, an alternate blockchain specifically designed for testing Bitcoin functionality. It does not require the use of live Coinbase accounts or real bitcoin. Testnet bitcoin have no monetary value and are used for testing purposes only.
The Coinbase Sandbox API looks, feels, and behaves just like the actual Coinbase API, delivering an accurate and representative test environment. For more detailed information about Sandbox functionality, please visit our developer blog.
To get started, simply sign up for a Coinbase Sandbox account account and begin testing.
