Get Free Ether from

This section describes how to get some free Ether from

With MetaMask extension for Chrome installed and my accound address ready, I can receive Ether funds now.

Here what I tried to receive some Ethers from on the Ropsten Test Network.

1. Go to

2. Enter account address 0xef6Ea9F8Bd78ac42Fb2617ba90846D5785BB320c. And click "Send me 1 test ethe!".

3. Few seconds later, the following message shows up:

Faucet queue

Ether sent to
Address: 0x35eD9D3b...
TxHash: 0x9bc01e4c...

Something went wrong here. The Ether was sent to a different address. My address starts with 0xef6E... not 0x35eD....

4. Go back to MetaMask. The balance on my Ropsten Test Net is still 0.00 Ether.

So is not working.

5. Try to call the REST API based on the instruction on the page:

 "amount":0,"message":"you are greylisted","snapshot":1520470157476,

The response says: My account address is greylisted! Why? I only tried several times, and never received any Ether funds! Not Working Not Working
