The Rinkeby Test Network is a test network, not an ether-backed blockchain. Do you have an issue of test networks not showing up on metamask? How do you solve this? The tokens used with this network have no value and cannot be exchanged for ether but rather used for testing by developers and other stakeholders interested in seeing how a smart contract would work in the mainnet. But what if rinkeby and all other test networks are not showing u on metamask?
