In a statement, Tapswap said it didn't ban Nigerian tappers but noted that it had to request verification to check bot activities.

Also speaking to Legit.ng, Fidelis Ozuawala, a cryptocurrency expert at Wapttors Academy, said mined coins cannot be lost.

His words:

"No, Tapswap is powered by Solana, a layer one blockchain project. And when you got into Tapswap some of the first tasks you were asked was to connect your Solana wallet. If you connected your wallet, once snapshots are taken, a release date is made public, your tokens would be sent to that Solana wallet you connected.
"They may introduce a method to disqualify bot-controlled accounts, such as requiring you to click a "Claim" button. So, if your Tapswap account can't be opened by then, you may now have issues. However, myself and several others weren't able to have smooth access to our account on the 26th May as the system rate-limited us, but as of typing this, everything seems fine."

Why Tapswap was not opening

In a related story, a Nigerian lady said she decided to start coin mining on Tapswap so that she would benefit if it paid participants.

Ose Sweet said when Notcoin started, people rushed to mine coins on the app, but she refused to participate.

According to her, Notcoin later paid some people she knew, noting that someone made N368,000 from it.
