I'm trying to get 0.2 Goerli ETH in the testnet token faucet, but when I paste my address to claim and I request the amount, I still get the following error:

'Request failed with status code 503'

How to proceed? Thanks.

Yes, sometimes 'error 503' appear when the server is overloaded for example.

This could be due to they reached the memory capacity or often activated by an unusually high number of visitors trying to access at the same time, I couldn't tell you exactly.

It is a common issue while claiming, there are times when I get a 503 error.

But if you wait a little to refresh the browser, you will be able to claim.

So try again after some time, for sure it should work.

Check other available testnets for a while ;)
