A Complete Guide to Ethereum's Rinkeby Testnet
The Rinkeby testnet is an Ethereum testnet that developers use to test and perfect their own decentralized applications. The network is run by pre-authorized nodes, which prevents spam attacks and increases performance. Developers can use a Rinkeby Faucet to get free testnet ETH and test their smart contracts without the risk of losing real financial assets.
Unfortunately, the Rinkeby Testnet will be deprecated after the Merge, which means no more updates.
