How to get test eth for local node

Since I cannot currently deploy a smart contract to the testnet due to what I mentioned here Timed out waiting for contract to deploy I am looking at running a local node and deploy there instead.

I have started an in-memory node, but to move forward, I will need some test Eth but unfortunately, I could not find any instructions on how to give an account some test Eth.

Any pointers?

I found a way by setting this in the initial_state in the chain config. Not sure if there is another way to do this…but for now, this get’s me going.

Hi there :palm_tree:

initial_satate in chainConfig.json is the right way.
As seen in docs.

Let me know if you need further support!
