Hi I know we can get some ether requesting the automated rinkbey faucet but apart from that is there any way we can mine ethers on rinkbey and if we cannot mine them then what dictates transfer or addition of new ether on the testnet?

  • I searched for that and couldnt find it, now I cant even delete it, What are my options? – Anam Nizami Feb 21 '18 at 9:59

No. Rinkeby is a Clique Proof of Authority testnet, which means that only those who were explicitly granted authority can get ether from the network. There is no mining, and the only way to get ether is through the faucet.

In contrast, you can mine ether on the Ropsten Proof of Work testnet.
