While noting that the changes are all positive to accommodate the large Tapswap community, Tapswap maintained that it was necessary.

However, Tapswap has yet to announce the new blockchain it will be launching.

"...Dear TapSwappers,
"We are thrilled to announce that our community has grown to an incredible 28 million members! Your support and enthusiasm have exceeded even our highest expectations, prompting us to make significant changes to our project.
"These changes are all positive and necessary to accommodate our massive community. One of the major updates is that we will launch our token on a different blockchain instead of Solana.
"We will announce the name of the new blockchain shortly, and we promise it will be huge! Stay tuned for more exciting updates!" Tapswap wrote on X.

"Breaking News!
"#TapSwap will launch on a different #Blockchain instead of #Solana.
"Imagine they decide to launch on #Ethereum? #Eth gas ⛽️ fee will discourage many from claiming their airdrop allocations."

Speaking with Legit.ng, Obani Ebenezer Nwokoma, a crypto expert, described Tapswap's update as a good development for most people and explained why. In his words:

"It should be good news to most people because many are still finding it difficult to link the recommended wallet to Tapswap. Some may consider it unnecessary, and to some, a “burden has been lifted", but until we know the platform they're in talks with, we keep hoping for the best, and Tapswap is still promising."
