CoinList ICO: Axelar + Registration Quiz Answers
Universal Connectivity for Web3
[Update 11 Mar 2022]: I was successful in this ICO. Posted a blog article sharing my experience of the queueing and purchasing process for the Axelar ICO on CoinList.
[Update 30 Jun 2022]: The distribution date for Axelar has been postponed to on or around September 14, 2022. In consideration of the delayed distributions, the initial distribution will unlock 5 months’ worth of tokens. Eligible users will receive the native Axelar token instead of the ERC-20 token, which will allow users to immediately stake and use the token on-chain.
ICO Registration Deadline:
- 7 Mar 2022 at 18:00 UTC (8 Mar 2022 at 02:00 in Singapore)
There is only one option for this sale. The token sale will be on:
- 9 Mar 2022 at 18:00 UTC (10 Mar 2022 at 02:00 in Singapore)

AXL (ERC-20) Token
AXL is the native token of the Axelar Network. The AXL token supports four critical functions:
- AXL is a medium for transaction fees and any other fees for network usage, paid by users to the validators that run the network.
- AXL is used by holders and their proxies to deposit stake and exercise governance over proposals (ex. a parameter change or protocol upgrade).
- AXL enables incentives to support the decentralized Proof-of-Stake consensus that secures the network and validates transactions on chain. Validators receive AXL rewards as incentives to continue to secure the network. These incentive rewards are distributed programmatically, per rules encoded in network protocols, and are inflationary, i.e., each protocol reward increases the total token supply.
- AXL is used to reward ecosystem builders and community contributors.
- At the Axelar genesis block, 1 billion AXL tokens in total will be issued.
- An ERC-20 version of AXL will be sold in the CoinList token sale. The ERC-20 AXL can be swapped for native AXL tokens through Axelar’s demo application, Satellite, via a command-line interface on the Axelar network or via other upcoming front-end applications.

Notes on participating in CoinList ICOs
CAPTCHA after logging into CoinList on sale date
I once logged into CoinList about an hour prior to an ICO sale and left the countdown page idle.
When I went back to the browser tab after the sale started to check my queue number, I realised I had been timed-out because I did not complete a second CAPTCHA that appeared sometime during the countdown, and thus I did not manage to get a decent queue number.
Odds of getting allocated is very very very low
CoinList ICOs are very popular. Assuming there are 1.2 million registrations for this sale and 66,667 investors getting the chance to purchase, this works out to ~5.5% probability. The odds of staying up late (if you are in Singapore) to wait for the sale and ending up empty handed is awfully high.
