Deploying a Hook to the Testnet

The following material is strictly for personal and testing purposes. This guide may not work for production deployments
  1. 1.
    Obtain testnet ETH by bridging from Sepolia
The testnet supports deploying hooks with forge script and CREATE2 salt mining. In production, not all networks will support this
