The rinkeby faucet only seems to have an option for ether. I'd like some weth so I can test Uniswap v2. Anyone know where I can get some? Thanks!

  • I tried both: > sending ETH to WETH (in Rinkeby), which did not work > exchanging ETH for WETH in Uniswap, which only worked on Uniswap - in my Metamask account I still see 0 WETH. Any idea why this may be the case?

You can simply send the Ether to the WETH contract, and it will send wrapped Ether back.


Normal way would be as described by @Morten. Alternatively just purchase WETH with ETH at https://app.uniswap.org/#/swap.


As said previously, you can swap eth for weth on uniswap. But if you want, the smart contract address for weth in Rinkeby is 0xc778417E063141139Fce010982780140Aa0cD5Ab
