Patex Network

Welcome to the Patex Network!
Whether you're just looking to deploy a basic contract (opens new window) or you're ready to build a cross-chain app, you'll be able to find everything you need to start building on Patex within this section.
If you're looking for third-party tools that make building on Patex easier, check out the Tools for Developers section.

# Where should I start?

# Just getting started with Patex?

If you're brand new to Patex, we recommend checking out the guide to deploying a basic contract (opens new window). It'll get you familiar with the core steps required to get a contract deployed to the network. Luckily, Patex is EVM equivalent 100% the same as deploying a contract to Ethereum.
If you're a bit more familiar with Patex and Ethereum, you can try walking through one of the various tutorials (opens new window) put together by the Patex community. They'll help you get a headstart when building your first Optimistic project.

# Ready to deploy a contract?

If you're looking to deploy your contracts to the Patex mainnet or the Patex Sepolia Testnet, take a look at the contract deployment tutorial (opens new window). It contains sample configuration files for deploying your contracts from common frameworks like Hardhat, Truffle, and Brownie.
You might also want to check out our guides for running a local development environment or running your own Patex node. These guides are designed to help you feel totally confident in your Patex deployment.

# Want to explore the cross-chain frontier?

We've got detailed guides for that. If you want to bridge a token from Ethereum to Patex (or vice versa!), you should use Ethereum Converter. The Ethereum Converter makes the process of moving ETH between chains as easy as possible.

# Still don't know where to look?

If you can't find the content you're looking for you've got a few options to get extra help. We recommend first searching through this documentation (search bar at the top right). If you've already done this and come up short, you can try visit official Patex web-site.
