New cryptocurrency are constantly appearing on the market and some of them offer great opportunities, although with great risks.
Besides the main and the most popular cryptocurrencies, there are numerous lesser-known cryptocurrencies which are present on the market for some time now, but their trading volume is low. Here is a list of six cryptocurrencies that might be interesting to you and could cause excitement on the cryptocurrency market this year.
Gladius has recently raised 12 million dollars during its Initial Coin Offering (ICO). This cryptocurrency offers a decentralized technology based on the blockchain technology whose goal is to protect from the DDoS attacks and increase the speed of content delivery.
