Testnet - Issue sending transaction. Is your address correc

I am trying to setup zcash on linux for learning. I tried to send coins from https://faucet.testnet.z.cash/ but get error message " Issue sending transaction. Is your address correct"

Not sure what am I missing?, Any help is appreciated.

Its probably the punctuation chars not being ‘escaped’ properly on your send command, if you’re doing it via the command line its fiddly.

I am using the https://faucet.testnet.z.cash/ to send test coins for address tmXpdTncrdUZC3XYEz4d4jXXWeCfrZ4RJ2Z

Try this command to see if you’re on the right fork
“zcash-cli getblockhash 584000”
If it shows 00367515ef2e781b8c9358b443b6329572599edd02c59e8af67db9785122f298, you’re on the right fork; if anything else, you should shut the node down.

Utilizing Etherscan.io zec

Zcash is not a Ethereum token, Etherscan will not work to check Zcash transactions.
