The Sepolia testnet is a proof-of-stake (PoS) testnet where Ethereum application developers can test their smart contracts without having to spend real ETH tokens. Because there is no fixed cap on the total number of SepoliaETH tokens that can be minted, Sepolia is the preferred network of developers compared to Goerli.

This article will explain how to get test Sepolia ETH tokens in 3 simple steps.

1. Visit sepoliafaucet.com

This Sepolia Faucet is managed by Alchemy, and provides web3 developers with a fast and reliable way to collect free sepoliaETH tokens. Unlike many faucets that require social verification through tweets, Alchemy is available to the public without social validation.

2. Create an Alchemy Account

Although Sepolia ETH is free, and has no liquid markets to give it a price, malicious actors sometimes spam faucets to drain the test Sepolia ETH tokens. To dissuade spammers, users of the free Sepolia ETH faucet are required to login with their Alchemy account.

If you don't have an account, it is free to sign up, and there is no credit card required! Simple fill out some basic information like your name and email, and you can start claiming up to 0.5 sepETH per day!

3. Request SepoliaETH

The final step is to enter your Ethereum wallet address or Ethereum Name Service (ENS) domain, and click the "Send Me ETH" button to receive your free test ETH!
