What is TapSwap? The Viral Tap-to-Earn Game Explained

Tapswap is a viral tap-to-earn game that lets users earn crypto rewards by tapping their screens and performing simple tasks. This article explains everything you need to know about Tapswap and how to get started.


Several crypto projects have emerged with a new tap-to-earn gaming model in recent months, promising users real-world value. By simply tapping their devices, gamers are assured of receiving in-game tokens that can later be cashed out.

TapSwap is one such project that has popularized the tap-to-earn concept. It is a Solana-based clicker game that allows users to earn crypto rewards by tapping their screens and performing simple tasks. Despite being relatively new in the industry, TapSwap has captured the attention of over 17 million users globally. This surge in the project’s user base has sparked curiosity in the crypto industry among those unfamiliar with TapSwap’s dynamics.

What is TapSwap?

TapSwap is a clicker game that enables users to earn crypto rewards by tapping (mining) an icon on their screens. The project is described as a decentralized exchange (DEX) on the Solana network.

Users access the TapSwap platform by interacting with an automated bot on the Telegram messaging app. The bot provides each player a link to the project’s interface, where they tap an icon to receive rewards. Users receive additional tokens through referrals and other in-game activities. At the time of writing, the tap-to-earn game works only on mobile devices.

TapSwap’s popularity was fueled by Notcoin’s rise, another clicker game on Telegram. Unlike TapSwap, Notcoin utilizes the Telegram-affiliated blockchain, The Open Network (TON). On May 16th, 2024, Notcoin’s native cryptocurrency, NOT, was listed on crypto exchanges like Binance, OKX, and Bybit. The NOT token’s value soared to as high as $0.0122 shortly after its debut. TapSwap’s current virality is underpinned by users’ urge to position themselves for financial gains as they consider TapSwap the next big thing.

TapSwap’s native cryptocurrency is called TapSwap coin (TAPS). It has a total supply of one billion tokens. At the time of writing, the token has yet to be listed on crypto exchanges, implying that it cannot be sold for fiat currencies. However, users continue tapping their screens, hoping TapSwap coin will become as successful as Notcoin.

Even though TAPS has not been launched, its creators have outlined several utilities accessible to holders. These include governance privileges to decide on key moves within the TapSwap ecosystem.

TAPS has also opened the way for additional benefits within the ecosystem. For example, holders were once entitled to 1,000 NFTs from Ghosts Club, one of the project’s founders. On another occurrence, TapSwap users in the Legendary League were issued WUF memecoins rewards.

How Does TapSwap Work?

TapSwap’s gamified experience is designed to onboard everyone regardless of their crypto or tech expertise. A primary way to earn is to tap one’s screen continuously until the in-game energy storage runs out.

When players tap their screens, they receive rewards called Shares. The project’s roadmap explains that these Shares can be swapped for TapSwap’s native coin, TAPS. TapSwap revealed that TAPS will be available to users from May 30th, 2024, the same date when the Taps Pool is launched.

TapSwap offers several features that can be purchased to upgrade users’ earning capabilities. Below is a screenshot from the gaming platform showing these features and their functions:

  • Multi-tap: This serves as an extra finger, allowing users to earn more Shares for each tap.
  • Energy Limit: This increases the limit of energy storage. New users have an energy limit of 500 energy points. However, this number can be increased through energy limit boosts.
  • Recharging Speed: This allows for quicker energy storage refills. New users are limited to Level 1 where one energy point is added to the energy storage at a time. With this boost, players can upscale their recharging speed to as high as Level 5 (i.e., adding five energy points at a time).
  • Tap Bot: Users purchase the Tap Bot for 200,000 Shares to accumulate Shares on their behalf while they are offline. If the player does not claim the coin mined by the Tap Bot within 12 hours, the Tap Bot stops accumulating Shares.
  • Tapping Guru: This free boost enhances tapping for 20 seconds. Once activated, users receive five times the usual amount of Shares they earn per tap. This implies that a user who receives 1 Share for each tap will receive 5 Shares when the boost is active.
  • Full Tank: This free feature allows users to boost their energy levels to the highest. Players receive three Full Tanks daily.

Another way players earn Shares is by referring friends to join the clicker game. The new user receives 2,500 Shares after using the referral link. Users also receive Shares by connecting to a Solana-based wallet like Phantom.

TapSwap has 11 leagues that allow users to upscale their levels as they play the clicker game. Players attain new leagues based on the Shares received through taps. These are the leagues and the range of Shares required: 

  1. Wood League: 0
  2. Bronze League: From 1 to 4,999
  3. Silver League: From 5,000 to 49,999
  4. Gold League: From 50,000 to 249,999
  5. Platinum League: From 250,000 to 499,999
  6. Diamond League: From 500,000 to 999,999
  7. Master League: From 1,000,000 to 2,499,999
  8. Grandmaster League: From 2,500,000 to 4,999,999
  9. Elite League: From 5,000,000 to 9,999,999
  10. Legendary League: From 10,000,000 to 49,999,999
  11. Mythic League: From 50,000,000

Frequently Asked Questions About TapSwap

Can TapSwap Make Me a Millionaire?

As of May 22nd, the answer to the question is no. This is because TapSwap’s coin, TAPS, is currently valueless on the crypto market. Its value cannot be ascertained before a potential listing.

If TapSwap mirrors Notcoin’s market metrics after a potential listing on crypto exchanges, the asset may see a massive price surge moments after listing. On the other hand, if a bearish trend ensues, its value may not perform too well. Such a bearish trend occurs when several holders cash out their earnings from the game platform.

Note, however, that each player will receive TAPS based on the number of Shares they have accumulated. This means that the higher your Shares, the higher your TAPS gains if a market listing occurs.

How Much Is One TapSwap Coin?

TapSwap coin (TAPS) is a valueless token on the crypto market. This is because it is yet to be listed on crypto exchanges. If it gets listed, the value of each unit of the TapSwap coin will be known.

Where Can I Sell TapSwap Coin?

The TapSwap coin can be sold on crypto exchanges if it gets listed on those platforms. TapSwap’s counterpart, Notcoin, was listed on exchanges like Binance, Bybit, and OKX. TapSwap may see similar listings if it enters the crypto market.


TapSwap is a clicker game that has gained traction among crypto and non-crypto natives alike.
