Hub is an input manager for IOTA, targeted for use by exchanges. It handles deposits and withdrawals by storing inputs and utilizes an internal sweeps mechanism for safely crediting people.
For the purpose of testing there are API endpoints that mimic the core functionality of an exchange. This is supported by the public testnet, therefore you need to use testnet tokens. You may participate in testing via simply visiting http://188.8.131.52:5000/ and hitting the
help command to get started.
It would be helpful to create an account, deposit tokens, withdraw, observe your account info and report any issues you may encounter. Make sure to set a password that you do not use elsewhere!
