I tried to get rinkeby ethers from https://faucet.rinkeby.io/ by creating a tweet but the website shows "insufficient funds for gas * price + value” error. I also tried the website faucets.blockxlabs.com, it shows the transaction to be successful but I didn't receive any rinkeby ethers. I am a newbie in working with test networks, any help would be appreciated. Thank u!

  • I'm currently following an Ethereum course on Udemy, and I really struggle to obtain some test ethers (I tried Rinkeby and Ropsten faucets, to no avail). All the answers I find online about that problem are of type "give me your address I'll send you some". It would be interesting to have a more general solution, or at least an an answer as to why it seems so hard to obtain test ethers in that particular time period. – cjauvin Sep 27 at 15:36
  • The issue is now gone, I had the same problem. Just received my 3ETH by trying again. – Kriegalex Oct 1 at 16:20

    @cjauvin Ultimately, it has to do with the fact that "test" money isn't going to be very useful for testing unless it acts like money to an extent and that means some form of limitation, which ironically means you won't be able to get it too easily. – Chan-Ho Suh Oct 1 at 16:38

I think the issue is on their side, when there is too much demand. There is nothing you can do other than trying some other day.

Today, it worked for me, where the other week I had the same issue as you.
