What is Ropsten ETH and how can I get some?
The Ethereum blockchain has a few test-nets, and 2key Network has a version that operates on the Ropsten test-net. The Ropsten test-net allows blockchain developments to test their work in a live setting, but without the need for real ETH and main-net 2KEY tokens. This offers the ability to consistently tweak 2key Network without facing any serious gas fees or risking main-net 2KEY.
2key’s Ropsten test-net is an exact copy of the real, main-net Network, and it allows anyone to engage and try 2key network without needing real ETH tokens.
To experience all the features of 2key’s Ropsten test-net and to launch or interact with test-net 2key campaigns, there’s a need for Ropsten ETH, which is not real ETH but is still very useful as it is the fuel and currency of the Ropsten test-net.
How can I get Ropsten ETH?
It’s actually pretty easy, follow these steps:
- Go to your 2key wallet (or a regular wallet like MetaMask) and make sure you are running on Ethereum Ropsten test-net.
2. Once you’re on the Ropsten test-net, click on your wallet address in order to have your address copied to clipboard.
3. You can claim Ropsten ETH through faucets. Enter one of the following faucets:
