I tried to get some Kovan ethers, but all the site/faucets I get revered to by MetaMask don't seem to work. Anyone any suggestions or maybe even some spart Kovan Ethers? My address is: 0xa8323F5fBcf1980B2093a633cF03020900B81d53 thanks!

  • Just checked my wallet I did receive some via the normal way, but could us a few extra for an upcoming masterclass smart contracts I'll be giving where I want to use the Kovan netwerk to deploy test smart contracts, so any tips still welcome! – Olivier Rikken Sep 14 '17 at 8:18

Googling gave me This about Kovan Faucet

There are currently a few different methods of receiving Kovan Ether:

  • Icarus Faucet (SMS Verified, Automated)
  • Request Via Gitter (Manually Verified)
  • Use PoW via SmartPool

Github Gist Faucet ( Automated )

Go to http://gist.github.com and then create a new entry with the text being your Kovan address, once you save this your browser should have reloaded at a new url. This url needs to be passed to the gist faucet at http://github-faucet.kovan.network/url

curl http://github-faucet.kovan.network/url --data "address=https://gist.github.com/[github_username]/[gist_hash]"
  • SmartPool doesn't work anymore. Github site states: Smartpool was live on Kovan testnet altough since Kovan is PoA rather than PoW mining had to be faked. Smartpool no longer runs on Kovan, Ropsten must be used instead. – CodingYourLife Oct 5 '18 at 14:09
