# Bifrost Testnet Rules
IRISnet’s DeFi and interchain Testnet Bifrost will run side by side with Stargate’s testnet in order to test the new DeFi features of IRIS Hub, the integration with the new version of Cosmos SDK and also the multi-Hub collaboration through the IBC protocol. [More details](https://medium.com/irisnet-blog/bifr%C3%B6st-irisnets-bridge-to-a-new-era-af32960dd88e)
In order to be compatible with IBC, IRISnet team refactored IRIS Hub based on the latest Cosmos SDK, which is incompatible with previous API and CLI versions. Doing so, we will do our very best to support service providers as wallets, explorers, exchanges to migrate to the new requirements, providing a stable development and a verified environment to them, so Bifrost testnet can continue to run until the mainnet upgrade, providing a stable development and verification environment for service providers.
At the same time, in order to achieve a smooth upgrade of IRIS Hub mainnet, we encourage validators and community members to actively participate in Bifrost testnet, verify the refactored IRIS Hub modules, test the new functions, and explore the potential commercial value and use cases of IRIS Hub's unique features and innovations.
On the other hand, Bifrost will interconnect with Stargate testnet to form a dual-Hub testnet. Teams in the Cosmos interchain ecosystem are welcomed to participate by starting their own testnet as well as service providers interested in providing Relay service in the future. Let’s BUIDL together the New Interchain "Cosmos"!
This phase will mainly test the upgraded modules and new modules and is intended for:
- Testing Service function, including the service creation, binding, request, response, service fees withdrawal, etc.
- Testing Oracle function, querying the response value of the running Oracle
