[Ethereum] Can’t get ether from Rinkeby testnet faucet


I'm a new user trying out the Rinkeby testnet. I followed the procedure in this youtube video. But I can't get ether. This page says "Invalid User… boom!"

I've contacted GitHub. They suspect that it's due to misbehaving spam-detecting robots, so they just unflagged my account "twice" but still doesn't work. What should I do?

Best Answer

To get ether from the Rinkeby testnet, you have to post your ethereum address to one of the following social networks:

  1. Twitter (public)
  2. Google+ (public)
  3. Facebook (public)

Once you've made the post, copy the public post URL and paste it into the Rinkeby testnet faucet. You'll get your test ether quickly after that.
