Comment on the Tribal ICO
Both options have a long lock-up period followed by a linear release. So punters looking for a quick flip would probably like to give this ICO a miss.
- Option 1: 1-year lockup followed by a 6-month linear release
- Option 2: 1-year lockup followed by a 12-month linear release
It is reassuring to know that early backers and contributors are in for the long run, as they also have a one year lock-up period and even longer linear release period of 30-36 months.
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.
Karma required for priority queue
[Mar 2022] In the last 5 token sales, many registrants with a CoinList Karma score of approximately 2,000 or greater were invited to the priority queue for CoinList token sales. The priority queue is an invite-only queue that is significantly shorter than the main token sale queue and runs in parallel to the main queue.
CoinList shared in an April 2022 email newsletter that Priority Queue users are up to 40x more likely to get a spot in token sales.
Odds of getting allocated is very very very low
CoinList ICOs are very popular. The odds of staying up late (if you are in Singapore) to wait for the sale and ending up empty handed is awfully high.
