I transferred Ether to the main network in Metamask. This might seem like a stupid question, but how do I transfer that Ether to the Kovan Test Network?


1 Answer 1


You can't transfer ETH from one network to another. You can get free ETH on most testnets though, here's a link to information on faucets for the Kovan testnet.

There are currently four ways listed on the above link to get Kovan testnet ETH:

  • Icarus Faucet (SMS Verified, Automated)

  • Github Gist Faucet ( Automated )

  • Request Via Gitter (Manually Verified)

  • Use PoW via SmartPool
