Why Tapswap is asking you to verify you are human

Legit.ng spoke to Fidelis Ozuawala, a crypto currency expert at Waptutors said the request for verification is for security purpose to stop bots.

He said:

"The verifying that they are human is just a firewall checks, there has been DDOS attacks. Technically, this is when bot traffic infests a server. Bot traffic are non-human and they eat up resources. So what they did is to make everyone from that region to verify that they are human. Painfully this affects everyone including human, but can stop the bots temporarily till they upgrade their system to a point that can stop only the bots."

When asked if the verification means Nigerians are not trusted, Fidelis, who also runs Crypto With Fidelis, said Nigerians are trusted.

He told Legit.ng:

"Nigerians are trusted, just that a host of them are using unfair methods to get clicks. Some of which includes clicker apps and software. These are non-human activity, hence that verification would stop them from being able to use the apps. Even if it works, from time to time it will ask them to verify which ultimately stops the smooth running of their auto-clicker bots and apps."
