I am rich now. I installed geth on ubuntu, created a testnet chain, made an ethereum account, mined 100 ethers, and tried sending 20 ethers to another testnet ethereum account.

It seems I am learning not bad.

I was wondering if it is possible to send those test ethers to another test wallet account (metamask kovan maybe?) from my geth console?

like this

eth.sendTransaction({from: '0x3f65...e31', to: '0x6c...BDf', value: web3.toWei(20, "ether")})

(okay, one question at a time) thanks

  • that 100 ethers are in your local testnet network and can be transfer to another account in the same network not a public network like ropsten or kovan

  • to gaining testnet ether in each of these networks you should go to the related faucet and request some

  • in the other hand you can connect your metamask wallet to your local chain

  • thanks a lot for your answer. I couldn't connect my metamask wallet to my localchain through localhost:8545. Should i try other similar wallets? Commented Apr 13, 2022 at 1:02
