Crypto experts react to Tapswap's wallet removal

Two crypto experts who spoke with Legit.ng offered possible reasons for the wallet removal.

For Moreblessing Ogbogo, the wallet removal could be because Tapswap changed its mind about launching on Solana. In his words:

"Initially, Tapswap proposed launching on the Solana chain, but due to a lack of full backing and sponsorship from Solana, they decided to switch to another blockchain."

Crypto expert Obani Ebenezer Nwokoma told Legit.ng the wallet removal was "for the best."

According to him, Tapswap did not foresee the project recording such a huge success and this affected their earlier planned launch pool. He said:

"Well, yes, they have; well, I think the project wasn't expected to be this much of a huge success, and a blockchain was already there, and I believe the time they realized they could expand more I'm not saying Solana is bad but no knows what their plans are... NOTCOIN didn't choose a particular exchange from the onset. It just happened, and listing on different exchanges started popping up.
