CAPTCHA is short for 'Completely Automated Public Turing Test', which is the test that you see on many websites which allows those very websites to tell computers and humans apart. More importantly, CAPTCHA solutions keep the bots out and add a layer of protection for sensitive data - as bots can steal data, break into user accounts, submit junk data through online forms, and perform many other malicious activities.
Did you know that it takes the average person about 10 seconds to solve a typical CAPTCHA!
Today we are talking about hCaptcha, the brainchild of Alex Newman, which has grown into the largest independent cybersecurity service in the world, running on about 15% of the internet, and they took most of this market share directly from Google reCAPTCHA. What is even more interesting is that hCaptcha is powered by the HUMAN Protocol, which is an open decentralized protocol that runs on the Ethereum blockchain.
hCaptcha solutions are excellent because they don't sell personal data, collect only minimum necessary personal data, are transparent in describing the info they collect and how they use and/or disclose it – and most importantly, as stated above - deter bots and spammers while preserving users' privacy.
Join Aviva Ounap, the host of Crypto and Blockchain Talk, as she talks to Alex about hCAPTCHA and how they are increasing market share, what is happening with their protocol, and how their blockchain and oracles are shaping up to serve the users of their magnificent platform.
