Trick to get more Tapswap coins faster

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a man had shared a new trick Nigerians can adopt to get more Tapswap coins faster and reaccess Telegram.

In a Facebook post, Ambrose said people still getting Tapswap error messages should access Telegram with a virtual private network (VPN). Ambrose revealed he used X-VPN to access his, which is absolutely free.

Corroborating Ambrose's advice, a crypto expert, Obani Ebenezer Nwokoma, told Legit.ng that Nigerians can still access Tapswap with the various VPNs available, adding that the 'login' problem was because of the Nigerian location.
