I'm setting up for the first time a test node on the Waves Blockchain. And now that I started the waves.jar applications with the waves-testnet.conf file, it seems my computer is downloading a blockchain. I looked on google for the following 2 questions but it seems that we are still in the early stages for waves and there aren't many tutorials online yet to help. So here they are:

Am I downloading a separate blockchain from the Main Net?

How many blocks does this blockchain have? Where can I check it?

 It's made in this way for testing purposes. Test transactions should not be mixed with real ones.

The current height of testnet blockchain you can check at
