I want to create my own coin but I want to experiment first. I'm trying to deploy in the Eth wallet. All the websites to get Ropsten eth are down.How can I try making a coin without spending any money? Or do I need to? Is there a better way to deploy? I understand the code for the most part but I'd like to know how to run it and try things.

Ropsten address 0x56212F540b4a1057cEBD6d10EE66D56a527CfCA2

Building your own token should be done locally first, on a simulated blockchain like Ganache, or through a process such as this one demoed with the Embark framework. You typically go to a "live testnet" like Ropsten, Rinkeby etc. only once you're happy with how things work locally on your own machine.

As far as Ropsten ether goes, though, this faucet works well: https://faucet.ropsten.be/ and this one: https://faucet.metamask.io/ - both will give you some REth to play with.


You can load 1 Ether into a wallet at https://faucet.ropsten.be/.

It is restricted to one wallet per IP per day.

FYI Testnets Ropsten, Rinkeby and Kovan have been deprecated. Goerli is the only Ethereum testnet running b/c of the recent Ethereum Merge.

If you need any free Goerli testETH, this is one of the most-used faucets by web3 devs - https://goerlifaucet.com.

I can reliably get more Goerli testETH every day, which is usually enough for all my basic testnet needs.
