Crypto expert speaks on Tapswap's action

Sharing his thoughts on Tapswap's surprise action, crypto expert Ekeson Egwuonwu told Legit.ng that it is a good business strategy and a nice promotion move.

Ekeson explained what he meant:

"It is no dent. It is a good business strategy and a good art of promotion. Tapswap is a product. And influence is one of the ways to initiate users.
"If they follow a crypto expert, it means one thing; they have faith in such an expert and would definitely collaborate with him to work harder for the progress of their product."
