I need to obtain Rinkeby DAI token with this token address:


I tried a faucet and https://rinkeby.uniswap.exchange/swap - both give me a different token (however with the same token symbol "DAI").

    It is hard to say without knowing where you got this address from. The contract is not verified on Etherscan: rinkeby.etherscan.io/address/…. If you can find out the ABI of the contract, there is probably some kind of deposit function to mint you DAI. Commented Apr 17, 2020 at 22:12

You can get DAI via compound!

This DAI has this address, not the one you have been looking for, but in 2020 it maybe different:


Just visit compound with metamask being on rinkeby:


  1. go to "Supply" and click the desired token
  2. in the modal go to "Withdraw"
  3. click on "FAUCET", you will get 100 token

Picture is for USDC, but same with DAI


I think there's no "DAI faucet", what you need to do is to get ether from a faucet and then you need to interact with DAI contract to send ETH into their contract, and then you'd receive DAI

Here's a guide that might help you: https://github.com/makerdao/developerguides/blob/master/dai/dai-in-smart-contracts/dai-in-smart-contracts.md
