I tried to send test ethers to the main account address created on Ethereum wallet by using the Ropsten faucet (http://faucet.ropsten.be:3001/) but did not receive any . My wallet is synced with Ropsten test network.

Any suggestions on how I can get some ethers into my testnet account?


I found the Metamask Faucet to be working quite nicely. Simply load your Ropsten account through MetaMask and request (or give!) some.


https://faucet.metamask.io/ this worked for me. I accessed it from the buy button after selecting the Ropsten Testnet

When I tried, the faucet mentioned in the question gave 3 ETH every 7 seconds:

  • Yes, it's been down for about 2 weeks, hopefully it comes back up soon. – Tom Hale Nov 8 '17 at 10:03
  • @TomHale It's still not working, but I'm hopeful it will come back soon, too. It returns a txHash! But that tx hash doesn't work. Where is it getting these tx hashes? Just making them up!? ropsten.etherscan.io/tx/… – lmat - Reinstate Monica Jan 12 at 19:48

I am in the same case as you are, this is my error message :
