Will be old an grey until I have some test ether! haha

Hey folks!

I am playing around with the testnet ropsten ... but I will be old and grey until I mined some test ether... ( I am hashing away with 50 KH/s !!)

Has someone a few test ether laying around to send to me? That would be really appreciated!


Thank you so much!

    I would suggest testing on the Rinkeby network and getting test Ethers from faucet.rinkeby.io. If I can find any Ropsten test Ether I'll send them your way (I'm checking my Mist wallet now, but it needs to sync first).

    We might have the blind leading the blind here, then! Rinkeby, to my knowledge, is just an alternative testnet. I do know that if you were to connect to a testnet via Geth, you'd use the networkid of 3 for Ropsten and 4 for Rinkeby, so that said, I'm prety sure both testnets have been available for quite some time. I also know that there has been a history of spam attacks on Ropsten so that may be why the latest version of Mist defaults to Rinkeby instead of Ropsten, but that's just a guess.

    I was wrong about Mist: "Rinkeby is also set as the default testnet, as it is much lighter to sync.".
