Well, as you said, it's in your test wallet. What else do you need, since you have the test Ethers there?

If you mint it in a testnet and someone buys it, they buy it with testnet Ethers, which has no monetary value. So you have gained 1 of testnet Ethers.

The transaction of 1 Eth only exists in the Rinkeby testnet (https://rinkeby.etherscan.io/tx/0x5438b317f970448a040bba32b89c1e2c4ae306943764193a19d7e65739ae2283).

  • The person who bought the NFT wouldn’t know I had mistakenly minted the NFT in test net though, and would had paid with real ETH is that not correct? – Matthew Coghlan Mar 25 at 11:41
  • I didn’t purposely mint the NFT in test net it was a mistake I only realised when I tried to send ETH to a different wallet and it never showed up, so what you’re saying it the ETH that’s in Rinkeby test is not actually real ETH even though the customer paid from his normal wallet? – Matthew Coghlan Mar 25 at 11:44
  • Added details to my answer. Only Rinkeby Ethers were transferred. – Lauri Peltonen Mar 25 at 11:48
  • Hi Lauri yes I understand the Eth is in the Rinkeby test net scan, what my concern is that the customer didn’t know they were sending Eth to my test net wallet so it would be real Eth sent, my question is how do I recover the real Eth out of my test net onto main net. – Matthew Coghlan Mar 25 at 16:49
  • I'm not going to repeat myself anymore. The transaction is only in Rinkeby, not in mainnet. Only Rinkeby Ethers were transferred. A user can't send Ether between different networks, not even by accident. A testnet wallet can only contain assets inside that network. – Lauri Peltonen Mar 25 at 17:49
