What is CoinList Karma?
Karma is a point system that recognizes your contribution to token networks on CoinList through value-add activities (staking, lending, voting on governance proposals, trading). The greater your contribution to token networks on CoinList, the more Karma you earn. At this time, Karma helps you qualify for the Priority Queue for token sales. The Priority Queue is an invite-only queue for token sales that is significantly shorter than the main token sale queue and runs in parallel to the main queue. We’ll be adding more Karma rewards in the coming months for users with Karma.
How can I check my Karma score?
Logged-in CoinList users can find their score on the Karma page, linked from your dashboard.

How is Karma awarded?
CoinList Karma consists of two types of Karma awarded: (1) “starters” earned one-time and (2) “weekly” earned through weekly activities on CoinList. Our Karma program is evolving and as it does we will update this FAQ. CoinList may change the terms of the Karma Rewards program at any time.
CoinList Starter Karma is awarded once per milestone activity on the platform across staking, trading, lending, participation in experimental offerings (not currently open for participation), participation in validator/mining programs (not currently open for submissions), submitting a project to a CoinList hackathon (not currently open for submissions). Additionally, we award early adopters by awarding starter Karma to users who participated in our earliest sales and our most engaged users from the beginning (including partners and founders).
Starter Karma categories and milestones:
Staking features 3 milestone activities.
Governance features 1 milestone activity.
Lending and experimental issuer offerings like the NuCypher WorkLock, the Oasis ROSE Garden, or EGL Genesis earn 1 milestone per activity.
Trading features 4 milestone activities.

Weekly Karma is awarded through weekly activities, currently limited to locked asset staking and trading on CoinList. At the moment, you can earn weekly Karma via trading on CoinList and staking locked assets (Nucypher, Casper, Flow, Rose). This is subject to change.
Staking Weekly Karma:
1.2% of locked staked assets (Nucypher, Casper, Flow, Rose) are converted to weekly Karma. Weekly Karma is issued once a week on Monday and expires after 12-weeks. Staking Karma begins to accrue once assets are locked. Users can earn up to 60 Karma per week for stake-locked assets.
Trading Weekly Karma:
1% of trade volume is converted to weekly Karma. Karma is issued once a week on Monday and expires after 12-weeks. Users can earn up to 50 Karma per week for weekly trades on CoinList
Weekly Karma examples:
- User 1 trades $1,000 in volume and $500 is lock-staked in Flow over a one-week period. The following week, the user will be awarded 10 Karma for trading and 6 Karma for staking, earning 16 total weekly Karma.
- User 2 lock-staked $6,000 of Flow over a week-period. The following week, User 2 is awarded 60 points due to the weekly cap.
Note, we additionally award Karma to folks who show exemplary community behavior based on our discretion.
When will Karma appear on my account?
Auto staked assets (Algorand, Celo, Mina, VEGA) Karma will be rewarded once your first staking rewards are distributed to your account.
Locked staked assets (Nucypher, Casper, Flow, Rose) Karma will be awarded once the upcoming staking period begins.
Governance Voting Karma will be awarded within a week after the voting period closes.
Lending Karma will be awarded when funds are locked in the program.
Trading Karma via CoinList.co, CoinList Pro, CoinList Mobile, & WBTC Conversions will appear on your account within a few hours, up to a day.
Karma for participating in (1) active validator or miner programs on CoinList, (2) submitting projects to active CoinList hackathons, and (3) participating in experimental issuer offerings will be awarded at the end of the offering / program.
Locked staking assets (Nucypher, Casper, Flow, Rose) Karma will be awarded on the Monday after the upcoming staking period begins.
Trading Karma via CoinList.co, CoinList Pro, and CoinList Mobile will appear on your account on Monday for the previous weeks’ trading activity.
Starter Karma does not expire. Weekly Karma expires after 12-weeks on a rolling basis.
What can I do with Karma?
We plan to introduce a variety of rewards soon, but for now users can track their Karma on the Karma page, and eligible users with a high level of Karma can earn access to the Priority Queue on CoinList.
What is the Priority Queue?
The Priority Queue is an invite-only queue for token sales that is significantly shorter than the main token sale queue (in the low thousands compared to hundreds of thousands based on recent sales) and runs in parallel to the main queue. While Priority Queue invitees have a higher chance of securing an allocation, an allocation is not guaranteed.
