I want to use the Ethereum test network to test token transfers and such, but I can't find any token faucet or anything like it so I can't try out things. Google didn't show anything, only Ethereum faucets.

If anyone can point me in the right direction I will be very grateful.



From Weenus 💪 ERC20 FaucetAnnouncing the Weenus 💪 ERC20 token faucets on the Ethereum mainnet, and Ropsten, Kovan, Rinkeby and Görli testnets:

  • Search in your Ethereum blockchain explorer for WEENUS (18 decimals), XEENUS (18 decimals), YEENUS (8 decimals) or ZEENUS (0 decimals).

  • Send a 0 value transaction from your account to the token contract addresses below on your preferred network, and these token contracts will mint 1,000 ERC20 test tokens for your account.

Smart Contract Addresses


Here's one - https://ropsten.etherscan.io/address/0x583cbbb8a8443b38abcc0c956bece47340ea1367#readContract .

Send test ETH to the contract and you will get BOKKY tokens in return, 1 for 1.

[E] And you can view your token transfers using https://ropsten.etherscan.io/token/0x583cbBb8a8443B38aBcC0c956beCe47340ea1367 . The EtherScan block explorer does not show the tokens being transferred but it does show the token balance.

  • I've tried sending test ether to the contract address but the transactions keep failing. am I sending to the wrong address? – ekkis Feb 22 '19 at 20:57
  • I did sent test ETH to the smart contract but got nothing in return. Here more detailed (& noob friendly) instructions: metamask network: "rospten"! Browse the smart contract > click "write contract" > "connect with metamask" > method "3. transfer": insert your test ETH address and the amount (must be at least 1, I thought I could send 0.1 ETH: wrong, use a big number ;) ) > click "write" > in metamask see the conversion rate (100000000000000000000 = 100 BOKKY) & confirm > to see your BOKKY tokens: in metamask "menu" click "add tokens" > "custom token" and paste the smart contract address – firepol Apr 15 '19 at 8:41

Why not deploy an own erc-20 token? You can look for an existing Coin on etherscan.io (f.e. https://etherscan.io/address/0x26B1FBE292502da2C8fCdcCF9426304d0900b703#code), just modify symbol, name, decimals and total supply. So you can create your own ERC-20 token and do with it whatever you want. If you don't want to waste Ether, you can use one of the test-net like KOVAN or ROBSTEN. I prefer the Parity-wallet where you can directly deploy own smart contracts.


Get test Ether first:

MetaMask Ether Faucet

  • Request: 1 Ether

balance: 174148.33 ether

Ethereum Ropsten Faucet

  • Request: 3 Ether

balance: 35615 ETH


  • deploy your own token contract and test it; using remix and metamask for example

  • I don't understand, I need tokens not ethereum, I can already handle ethereum transfers. but thanks – Victor Feb 6 '18 at 14:00
  • @dasjkdj if you have ether, why don’t you just buy tokens directly from any token contract in testnet? Using remix and metamask for example. – Roman Frolov Feb 6 '18 at 14:02
  • oh, I see, thanks. Is there some sort of web / interface to do it or does it have to be done programmatically? – Victor Feb 6 '18 at 14:46
  • You can go to MyEtherWallet contracts change network to Ropsten and Select Existing Contract to interact with. – Roman Frolov Feb 6 '18 at 15:00
  • Added information from comments. – Roman Frolov Feb 6 '18 at 18:41

here are the links for the rinkeby test net, faucet and instructions on how to use it. https://gist.github.com/cryptogoth/10a98e8078cfd69f7ca892ddbdcf26bc https://faucet.rinkeby.io/ https://www.rinkeby.io/#stats
