Photo - MOCA: A New Token Sale on CoinList
A new token sale for MOCA has just launched on CoinList, marking the platform's first ICO since the update of the Karma mechanism, a scoring system designed to enhance users' chances of securing allocations.
The first thing that stands out on the page of this sale is the significant emphasis on the MOCA token, without a clear explanation of the project's essence and concept. While it seems that everything started with Mocaverse, the actual mention of Mocaverse is limited to sections about launch partners and its role as a partner network.

So, it's important to clarify what Mocaverse is.

Mocaverse is a membership NFT collection for the family of companies, projects, investors, shareholders, and partners of Animoca Brands. As such, the project is supported by the company behind the popular game The Sandbox.

  • A $15,000 pool for the top 150 in the Public category (for holders of NFT Public Guaranteed Lots and/or whitelist owners).

Final thoughts

As we can see, the token sale under CoinList's new rules differs slightly from previous ones. Allocation sizes can be quite substantial, with participants receiving only 5% of the tokens at the TGE. This means that for investors to recoup their investment immediately at TGE, the MOCA token would need to appreciate by a factor of 20.

Let's try to calculate the capitalization of MOCA under such a scenario. According to the tokenomics provided on the CoinList sale page, 12.8% of the total token supply will be issued at the TGE, which equates to approximately 1,137,777,777 MOCA tokens. If the price of MOCA increases by 20 times from the token sale price to $0.7876, the capitalization of MOCA would exceed $896 million. At the time of writing, this would position the project at the 95th rank on CoinMarketCap. 

Considering the various options for participating in the priority sale, as well as the large allocation sizes for whales, it appears that ordinary token sale participants may have limited opportunities to purchase tokens.
