2captcha is a Human-based captcha solving service, they have many workers who have signed up for this task. Their public statistics are listed below.

In March 2017 Google modified the ReCaptcha algorithm to shield it from an automatic answer. ReCaptcha now adjustments duties and pics oftentimes all through a solution on many famous websites and that is why solution time is multiplied. from time to time it takes extra than 2 mins due to the fact an actual human wishes a lot of time to bypass the ReCaptcha, despite the fact that it is solved manually as a regular person. This is why response times are affected a bit.
They have a variety of captcha to choose from. You can check the rates here.

P.S: here’s my link, go use it.

You collect 10% of your affiliate earnings and 10% of any purchases your partner makes on the service (when, your partner spends money, sending captcha to a software, registering in the catalog, 10 percent deducted software developers, and you get only 5 percent of its expenditure on the captcha). Once a day, an affiliate is rewarded to the account balance. If your partner spends or earns money today, you will receive compensation tomorrow. $0,5 is the minimum payout amount. Payment must be requested on the page "payments for affiliate program," with the amount and method of payment specified. Depending on the payout direction, withdrawals are processed instantly or within 5 business days.
