Blockstack testnet is broken

#1

https://testnet.blockstack.org/ does not work

#2

Hi @xihucuyu888,

I am testing from Arizona, US and it is working for me (screenshot below):

Also, I can see the HTTP headers when testing with an external tool as well.

https://viewdns.info/httpheaders/?domain=testnet.blockstack.org

What is happening on your end? Are you receiving an error message?

Hi @xihucuyu888,

I apologize, based on the content of your post I thought you were saying there is an issue with the website not the blockstack-cli.

I have not personally used the Stacks 1.0 Testnet (although I plan to get involved when 2.0 is released), however I may still be able to help.

Based on the error code you provided, I can search and see that mpwyP1L7oAHxQyWnBX4CuPxUx2kvZA67ZP is a bitcoin address. On the Stacks 1.0 Testnet page you linked, it states:

Note also that TOKEN_ADDRESS must be a Stacks address.
You can use blockstack-cli convert_address ADDRESS to convert between Bitcoin and Stacks addresses.
You can use blockstack-cli get_address PRIVATE_KEY to get both the Bitcoin and Stacks addresses for a private key.

Alternatively, if you wanted to send BTC you can use:

Send Bitcoin with:
$ blockstack-cli -t send_btc ADDRESS AMOUNT_SATOSHIS PAYMENT_KEY

Hopefully that helps, and if not, I’m sure someone more knowledgeable can chime in here!
