Ok , im not high yet , but any time i am using https://faucet.rinkeby.io/ to get some eth [3 eth to be exact],and it gets immediately transferred out to different wallet without any interaction from my side. How is that possible ? It is kind of scary.

Tha facet did work. Issue resolved , i used a hard hat account that i forgot about, it was imported to my metamask. Since its an open account with open private keys , someone created a bot that clears it out.

  • This should have been the first assumption. Glad you figured it out.

That faucet hasn't worked for me or anyone I know in a while, I been using:


https://faucets.chain.link/rinkeby (recommended)

The reason why I recommend the 2nd one is because you can run it several times to get the Eth you need.

When I started developing, I used a completely different wallet just in case.

Doesn't answer your question but I hope this helps you get going.
