Getting Rinkeby Ether is pretty easy, as easy as 1,2,3!

You are going to need 3 things:

  1. A social media account i.e. Facebook, Twitter, or Google+
  2. The Rinkeby faucet: https://faucet.rinkeby.io/
  3. An Ether wallet on the Rinkeby testnet

Example of MetaMask

Step 1: Take your Rinkeby Testnet Ether wallet address and paste it into your social media.

Example of Google+

Step 2: With the social media post as the main page, copy the Social media posts URL.

Step 3: Paste copied URL into https://faucet.rinkeby.io/ search field. It will ask you to choose from 1 of 3 different levels of Ether to send to the wallet. Choose what works best for you but understand that each choice has a cooldown period to prevent bots from taking all the ether from the blockchain.

Ok, so I have Rinkeby ETH in my wallet, what do I do now?

At this point, Rinkeby will fund your Ether wallet on the Rinkeby Testchain. You can now use your newly minted Rinkeby Ether to test our platform at https://rinkeby.primablock.com/ to create a test pool to see how it all works from start to finish!

Example of MetaMask
