When your application is ready for deployment, you need to go live to the mainnet. Be aware that once on the mainnet, all transactions in ELA become use real money, so make sure that your app is ready for that.

Switching from testnet to mainnet

While testnet provides you with everything you need to start building your app quickly, running your app on mainnet requires to have your own local node running as part of the ecosystem and act as a trust zone.

For this, there are a few steps you need to do:

Get your own server ready
