Capy Puzzle API support

What are Capy Puzzle challenges?

They`re challenges that typically require the user to place a jigsaw puzzle piece in order to complete the puzzle.

For your convenience, we implemented support for Capy Puzzle API. If your software works with it, and supports minimal configuration, you should be able to decode Capy Puzzles using Death By Captcha in no time.

  • Capy Puzzle API: Provided a site url and Capy Puzzle captcha key, the API returns a token that you will use to submit the form in the page with the Capy Puzzle challenge.

Pricing

For the time being, price is: 2.89/1K Capy Puzzle challenges correctly solved. You will not be billed for Capy Puzzle reported as incorrectly solved.

Capy Puzzle API FAQ:

What`s the Capy Puzzle API URL?

To use the Capy Puzzle API you will have to send a HTTP POST Request to http://$:{API_HOST}/api/captcha

What are the POST parameters for the Capy Puzzle API?

  • username: Your DBC account username
  • password: Your DBC account password
  • type=15: Type 15 specifies this is a Capy Puzzle API
  • capy_params=json(payload): the data to access the capy challenge
  • json payload structure:
    • proxy: your proxy url and credentials (if any).Examples:
      • http://127.0.0.1:3128
      • http://user:password@127.0.0.1:3128
    • proxytype: your proxy connection protocol. For supported proxy types refer to Which proxy types are supported?. Example:
      • HTTP
    • captchakey: the capy puzzle key.

      Example:

      • PUZZLE_h4k2THJgd5dR5jYrKRHdddaSEp7aDN

      You can usually find this in the webpage at the end of the api url

    • api_server: the root of the API server that had the captchakey attached to it
    • pageurl: the url of the page with the Capy Puzzle challenges. This url has to include the path in which the Capy Puzzle is loaded. Example: if the Capy Puzzle you want to solve is in http://test.com/path1, pageurl has to be http://test.com/path1 and not http://test.com.

    Note: if proxy is provided, proxytype is a required parameter.

    Full example of capy_params:

    
    {
        'proxy': 'http://user:password@127.0.0.1:1234',
        'proxytype': 'HTTP',
        'captchakey': 'PUZZLE_Abc1dEF1h4JKLMSno3dP56Q7rftu8L',
        'api_server': 'https://www.capy.me/'
        'pageurl': 'https://testsite.com/xxx-test'
    }
                

What`s the response from the Capy Puzzle API?

The Capy Puzzle API response has the following structure.


{
    "captchakey": "PUZZLE_Abc1dEF1h4JKLMSno3dP56Q7rftu8L",
    "challengekey": "y1Pu234nCwq56WnqB7y8TSZq0Qzp0ltK",
    "answer": "0xax8ex0xax84x0xkx7qx0xux7qx0xux7gx0x18x7gx0x1sx76x0x26x6ix0x2qx6ix0x3ex68x0"
}
      

Which proxy types are supported?

Currently, only HTTP proxies are supported. Support for other types will be added in the future.
