I tired to start miner to get test etheres in Mist, but is't shows a while 0.0 KH/s and than nothing. Looks like miner chrashed. Reinstallation didn't help. Also tried send test ether form faucet.ropsten.be:3001, no result. Any ideas? Maybe anyone can send me some test etheres: 0x366bae8CC220194911902473247df87579EE246e

  • Using the faucet no? i think this don't run well now cause i have the same problem with the transaction confirmation of metamask faucet. Try to use other version of geth for mining and send the ether to your main account in test-net.

Mining needs minimum RAM size of 4GB. If you your GPU is having very less memory than obviously mining will not start. In which test net you have connected. You can use,

  • ropsten,
  • koven,
  • rinkeby

Each an every testnet is having the faucet.

Please try adding ether through that, you will receive with in ten minutes.

  • I connected to ropsten, and already tried a lot of time to send ether from fauset

  • One more suggestion could be using metamask. In there you can create accounts which will have some ether balance. Check Metamask.io May 4, 2017 at 6:49
