Rinkeby faucet not working?

I’ve tried using the rinkeby faucet @ https://faucet.rinkeby.io/. It says successfully given ether, but when I try to deploy contracts, it gives an error of insufficient funds. If I check my etherscan @ https://rinkeby.etherscan.io/address/0xD5dF99c820E12B29b3654B66fA0De8eB9Fe21794 , I can see that I have a balance of 0. Not sure if this is an issue of demand or something, but is it possible someone can send me some test ether?


So have you done following the requirements?

  • To request funds via Twitter, make a tweet with your Ethereum address pasted into the contents (surrounding text doesn’t matter).
    Copy-paste the tweets URL into the above input box and fire away!

  • To request funds via Facebook, publish a new public post with your Ethereum address embedded into the content (surrounding text doesn’t matter).
    Copy-paste the posts URL into the above input box and fire away!

Yeah sorry, I got it, I think there was too much demand or something, but I can’t delete the post.

can someone send me some rinkeby eth? lol

need it for development thank you homies


I can see my validated address on https://faucet.rinkeby.io/ but the balance shows 0 in metamask.
Etherscan also shows no transactions in the address.

Hello, this site not working -> Official Rinkeby | https://faucet.rinkeby.io
Does anyone know why?

Same here, and I'm surprised it has been this long. Is there a team maintaining Rinkeby?

I thought it worked, but afterall my balance remains unchanged ...

Does Rinkeby still not working? that seems to.

I have the same problem, I get the message says it was completed successfully, and I can see my address on the site, but my account is empty, and I checked ether scan but it shows no transaction to my account

I have tried this three times in the last two weeks ?!

Try the chainlink faucet https://faucets.chain.link/rinkeby

Not an expert here but you can try to post your tweet link on the faucet just before 7pm IST. I noticed some accounts were funded by this time. I tried and got lucky and hence received some test ether on the rinkeby network.

Hey, can someone send me 3 ETH, it doesnt work for me ...
My address is : 0x23B2d70C8ca830899Cd12b38702fADdEb61aCAd1

Who is maintaining this site? It's always broken. Can we get some support here for god's sake!

Here is our running list of Rinkeby faucets to try:

Appears Rinkeby.io faucet broken.......appears been dead dry for 6 days. Could someone send me 1 ETH on rinkeby to address 0xcBE3a7e7F8Cf1E4C7192687F5a95b857FF353E21.

Thanks for the list.......that worked
