          maven {url "https://android-sdk.is.com/"}
      }
      1. Add the adapter’s Maven name to your build.gradle script of your app module.

        dependencies {
        implementation 'com.ironsource.adapters:molocoadapter:4.3.0'
        implementation 'com.moloco.sdk:moloco-sdk:2.2.0'
        }
        

        Step 6. Moloco Additional Settings

        User-level COPPA

        Unity LevelPlay let’s publishers communicate Moloco User-level COPPA settings directly to the Moloco network. This feature is enabled using ironSource SDK 8.0.0+, Moloco Android Adapter 4.3.0+.

        Use the following syntax, to set set Moloco COPPA with the parameter True:

        IronSource.setMetaData("Moloco_COPPA","true");

        Use the following syntax, to set Moloco COPPA with the parameter False:

        IronSource.setMetaData("Moloco_COPPA","false");

        Done!
        You are now all set to deliver Moloco within your application!
